I lived 35 years ago in an island of the Caribbean, there was nothing, a plane a week the yachting sometimes stammered we waited that a visitor brings us screws or nails.

Then we made work our brains ...............
We looked how made the childrens of the soil .............

Now there are everywhere ship chandlers, especially to HAWAÎ

Look around you at my guy, looks! {:-{ {:-{ {:-{ {:-{ :(( :(( :(( :(( %% %% %% %% %% 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)  :o :o :o %) %) %) %) %)

Ok I understand im being a pain for everyone here lolz
But I have to ask the experts  since I have no idea what im doing
Pleaee accept my apologies :)

I think I need to be more patient with this build
And patience is what im lacking
If I need something and cant find it I get all frustrated
Any way
Like I said this is my first build
And im getting ahead of my self gluing things

Someone told me complete my electronics first
Before gluing the deck
More room for me to work on
Which I  believe his right

So ill work on my electronics first
Need to order my controller servo battery to complete it
Test run it on my tub  make sure everything works
 Then ill work on my deck

I will also order that uhu plasti glue


Thanx everyone for being patient with me :)

Exactly which battery is this? Your system needs a battery pack for the transmitter and also a main battery for the boat. The power for the receiver comes from the P102 by plugging in the two-wire flylead (read and black thin wires with black plug moulding) into the receiver where it is marked Batt. A separate receiver battery is not required. Take another look at the wiring diagrams I did for you (Stage 2).

To build the kit of the AZIZ is relatively simple if we follow scrupulously the note

Install the electronics without following the notes!
I laugh about it beforehand

I meant my main battery which is 12v 12ah battery
I cant find a gel cell battery here in hawaii at the moment
They have to order it
Not in stock

The controller comes with a rechargeable battery from towerhobbies
But doesnt come with the servo
I can bundle up those things when I order it

There is no place for a battery of scooter

Get back batteries of drill / wireless screwing machine, condition them to occupy the available place


It is necessary to look around in the radio-controlled toys

Nick at Harbormodels should be able to supply glues and batteries. They have been supplying kits, glues, accessories, electronics for the past 20 years.
Alternatively contact Floataboat in Australia, they are familiar with our kits.

Another place for you to try would be fire alarm , burglar alarm businesses
They should use 12 volt 7 ah batteries
Good luck Aid

Now why didnt I think of harbormodels O0 (thanx jackie) :-))
Yup harbormodels have what I needed
Im wasting time looking around here in hawaii
Of the things I needed
I dont want to waste anymore time
From now on ill just look online

Which brings me to another battery question
How much run time difference is 12v 12ah battery compared to a 12v 8ah battery?  With my set  up of electronics?
This might be hard to answer but
I just needed a wild guess?

Some say with 12v 12ah 2 to 3 hours
what about 12v 8ah?
2 hours run time is  what im trying to get
since itll be mostlt just floating a d watching it driftting away :)
Thanx

Rough order of magnitude an 8ah battery will run for 2/3 the time of an 12ah battery given the same load. HTH

Does that help? You really must give things a little more thought before you post.

Hi inertia
I just wanted to make sure
I dont like second guessing  specifically when im ordering it online
Its better to ask the experts than making a mistake again :)

Thanx inertia
I dont need two receivers for now
I can always order those when the need for it arise

That 'K-Mart cart' looks perfect - even has that piece on the back to hold the TX and whatever else you need. :-))
