Tug Fiede Peba kits - the summer project
« on: July 08, 2019, 09:07:13 PM »

I've always wanted to make a mini/micro rc boat. So far my builds have been limited by 'standard rc equipment and suitable kits.
Accidentally I stumped over the Peba kits available on the German hobby-lobby site. I actually bought two kits: the Mooring tug I in 1:32 and the harbour tug Fiede in 1:50.

The webshop is not modern, and you have to make a money transfer using your bank account, but the staff is very friendly and relyable. By mistake I transferred 1 to much. Hence this the package included a handwritten note concerning the extra euro and a 1 coin. Both kits include 3D printed hulls in very good quality. The kits include 'everything' except paint, glue and rc equipment. The only disappointment was the motor supplied with the Fiede kit. The motor is a standard no-name 130 sized motor where as the motor in the mooring tug kit seems to be of good quality.]http://www.hobby-lobby-modellbau.com/onlineshop/product_info.php/info/p6325_Tug-FIEDE---1-50---Kit---38-90355.html[/url]

A main concern regarding micro models has been the needed rc gear. You can easily source micro rx units using google, but finding corresponding transmitters seems like a mystery when you are a newbie like me in this area of modelboating.


To be on the safe side I found another German website offering:
'Complete set BASIC PLUS, 2.4 GHz for 1:87 trucks'. This set has a rx/tx with esc meant to fit a small 1:87 truck. I asume it will also fit in the tug Fiede.

The link in poet 1 doesn't work for me. Try this one:

Thx. for correcting the link, I dont know what went wrong. Hope the next one's are better. With regards to the HEIN tug it appears to be available for orders as of now. I actually ordered one myself although 3 tugs in a row has a very low WAF factor. Seems like an interesting kit that might call for a V-tail mixer.

The sterntube
The sterntube 3mm is a tight fit in the tunnel in the  printed hull.
However a tight fit is of course to be preferred for a loose fit.
The tunnel had to be expanded with a 3 mm drill.

As stated before the motor is a noname 130 size motor.
[/size]The rpm of this motor could be anything from 5000 to 18000 rpm. [/color]
[/size]Your guess is as good as mine.[/color]

This 130 motor is rated at 6v 3000 rpm which should be suitable.

The kit also come with a small steering servo with a standard Futaba plug. The 'rc kit Basic Plus' that I aquired, comes with an even smaller servo, that has a plug that fits with the supplied micro rx. I expect to use the Basic Plus servo - 'Rohs'.
