Graupner Southampton

yes this is an RTR however it has some scope for reworking to improve her performance

how it comes -
Motor : 2x speed 200 on gear box
drive train pre installed
servo pre installed
radio pre installed 27mhz

recomended upgrade
rudder servo- Futaba S3003 or better
motors - fine as is.
esc's Viper 15x2
battery 1x twin tail AA 7,2v (though 2x AA7.2 under fan tail is ok)
radio 4ch Futaba (R114F)
install V-tail mixer if your radio does not have VT mix on ch3&4

Servo pre-installed is identical is size to Futaba S3003, however despite what many people say about the servo that comes with it, that servo is perfectly capable and has sufficient travel, however when you upgrade, move the control arm to the outermost hole on the rudder  tiller

micro 10 speed controller
12v 7amp lead acid battery
extras
Robbe Mutli switch controlling lights and smoke generator
running lights from kit (not very bright) and light chain from bow to smoke stack
smoke generator from Graupner (need a hole in the  bottom of the bottle so that the fluid can flow)
figures are scale 1/43 from the firm preiser http://www.modellbau-schneider.de/shop/pi1168104692.htm?categoryId=118
welder light is from a guy at work who told me it comes from a fake candle, welding gear is  self made
fenders from model shop (cheaper on ebay)

running time approx 5-7 hours and runs to scale.

running problems she tends to tílt slightly in strong winds as she doesn´t have a very deep keel but looks good on calm waters.

here is the link to my homepage with pictures and 2 films of here on the water  http://mcglinchey.de/44.html
any questions please don´t hesitate to contact me
mark

As a slight aside to the electric boats.

Mary J Ward - Victor Models
Modified

Hull Length 35", with bowsprit 50", fully rigged with boom 55".
Beam 10.5"
Height - From waterline to top mast 37"
Draft - Hull 3.75", with drop keel 11.75"

This is what is in it.

HITEC HS815BB sail servo
I used this as it is big and has about 23+ kg/cm of torque. For comparison a basic sail arm servo has about 7kg/cm of torque.
It is much bigger but space is not a problem in this beamy model.

Futaba S3003 - standard servo for rudder
I used this as it came in the box with the transmitter.

Attack 2ER Futaba radio
Cheapest 2 channel I could find.

Proposlusion - varies
Sometimes small wind, sometimes big wind.

Speed - somtimes slow, somtimes faster (see propulsion above).

Battery life
TX about 20 hours using regualr Duracell.
RX about 8 hours, unless heavy winds, then 6 hours.

No Motor
