 {-) wahahahha
That made my day
Oh im confident now that this aziz will sail
I got the nozzles in placed now
Its the hardest part in building my aziz I think
Aligning all those parts nozzles props has to be centered
I dont like those fittings
If only I have a welder ill fabricate my own fittings for for the running gears

The reason im asking now for those things is
So I have an idea about the tray ill be using inside the hull
Tray for the battery will prevent it from sliding all over the place when the waves hits it from the side O0

Hi bob

I have seen that thats why I ordered mine
I cant figured out whats holding the motor from that thing to fall off
 {-)you just stick it in and thats it?
I thought the motor would be bolted on something
 {-)
I feel and sound stupid right now

Ok let say I put it on just like that then what isnt the motor supposed to sit on something


This makes more sense to me

I've got no idea.  I just found the picture on Google images, and was hoping it would be of help.


Google turned this up:

Looks like it is glued together.

Thanx bob

This is crazy
That plastic jig is a waste of money
Im going to make my own from a fiberglass
hmmm maybe I can use that plastic

Next my portholes


I thought those glass or plastic would fit inside the portholes but its not
So Im Guessing those glass or plastic will be glued outside the portholes?

Google knows all!


I've always made my own motor mounts as well.


Usually I make them out of aluminum (aluminium for those outside North America!). Basically I just cut out a rectangle of aluminum, bend approx. 1/3 up at a 90 degree angle (or whatever you need to match the angle of your prop shaft), and drill three holes in it, one for your output, and two for mounting screws.


Aluminum works well for this as it is very easy to cut with a hack saw, files easy, won't corrode too bad, and may help keep the motor cool.  I usually glue the mount to the hull with something like silicone, as you can remove the mount at a later date by sliding a blade between the mount and hull.


You may need some short tubes to act as spacers between your mount and the motor, as the screws are back aways due to the gearbox.


Of course there are a lot of other ways of making mounts as well, I'm sure you will get some other ideas by poking around the site.

Hi bob

Im thinking of fabricating my own too
My problem is that I needed a clamp to hold down the motor in place


as you can see theres only two screws In there and I believe screws for the gears

And that plastic doesnt even sit right against the gear



who ever designed this stupid thing deserves a boot from behind
Glue that thing infront of a heavy motor then that motor will vibrate like a wild bronco

What about something like this?  The screws that hold the gearbox on will have to be replaced with longer screws, and spacers added between the mount/gearbox, where the screws pass through.


I know some people use a hose clamp on a bracket as well.  I can't find a good picture of one, but something like this, only hose clamps instead of wire ties.





I've never used a geared unit before, wish I could be of more help.

Something like that would be great
Something I can screw on there

I think the hose claml would be to small
This is a big motor

I think I really need to make my own

Cool
I like how he did his motor mount
I finally figured how the plastic aligned with the motor
now it fits perfectly against the gear
still dont like the idea of gluing it to the gear cover

Swap over the two props. The starboard (RH) prop should rotate clockwise going forward and the port one (LH) counterclockwise - both viewed from the rear. Some refer to this as "turning outwards from the top". At the moment yours are turning inward.

Hi inertia

Thanx for telling me
If im not mistaken
I have read somewhere that it doesnt really matter
I guess they were wrong
Ill switch it tomorrow

I think I just ruined my nee portholes <:(
I was trying to glue those plastic on top the portholes
Instead of just pushing it in place I hope I still can removed the glue when it dries out
Maybe I can just peel it off

Convention is that outward turning props are used for best maneuverability (tugs) while inward turning props are best for speed (warships).
I've never used those portholes but I've always understood that you push the transparent parts into the brass rings and then give them a very thin wash of clear varnish inside, which seeps into the very tiny gap all round by capillary action and makes them water-tight.

I think itll work out just fine since the glue is clear
Ahhh varnish cool

Yes the model making is a school of the patience

If you are well valid you do not begin again

And you ended before the one who made three times bad
