Original transmissions
« on: June 07, 2015, 06:01:25 PM »

Bonjour,


During the last model boat event located on the lake Blanchette located in Massy-Palaiseau, France, where more than 100 boats were presented, I have discovererd two tugs with very original transmisions built by my friend Michel :


The tug FAIRPLAY with two Schottel transmissions day and night


The tug MISTRAL with two Voith Schneider transmssions here


Watch their maneuverability ! 


And I do not resist to the pleasure to share with you a few pictures of my "offshore" tug JAN running with a steam pressure of 2-3 bars.


All my other videos about this event with the key words "Massy 2015 RC" on YouTube, you might see other types of models  :-))

I watched the videos. I think the night and day video is the same one? I had a chuckle at your steam tug Jan, towards the end it puts on a bit of speed and outruns the catamaran power boat {-) It does look nice on the water though.

Bonjour Brian56,


Oups, Sorry, you are right  :-))
Here is the good version of night video of the Fairpaly with a very difficult translation maneuver, I do not know how to modify my original message.
And when JAn offered a promenade to the President of the Massy Mdele Club, she was quite more quiet  O0
