HI ALL WELL regards my power shortage an after some testing found that problem is mine as when i was wirein up this ship a few wks ago i had this eye op on my mind alot an not thinking clearly so i found when runnig it that the front 12v down to 6v voltage reducer was getting quite hot an when i checked the wireing i found that i had made a classic mistate as this unit should just have been wired up to work THE R/X an  10 servos well some how i wired it up so that it worked all the 6v things in the whole ship an it was over loading an cuttin out due to a thermal coutout in the unit  so this is my fault so i set it to rights an now i have fitted in a new 12 down to 6v reducer an it all ran fine friday night had nr everthing goin  for half an hr an it only used not qiute one volt from the batt so im pleased
so a couple of linkpics to show the new unit fitted an wired in to work all the lights an hanger bay

HI Dave yea the hanger is a fair size just measured it an its 13 inches long an nr 10 inches wide but i dont think the got all four seakings in their just three an one standing out on the flight deck an teid down in rough weather but i'll say this the blooming thing is made as light as possible but is stil feels heavy but i do need a fair amount of wheight anyway to get her down in the water


an im thinking of fitting them steel half x half inch counter weights on her keel while i can still turn her upside down easy yes be more weight to lift but if i wait till shes finished an then try an fit it then i'll damage the railind on the main deck an if its not needed then i can easily just unscrew them an remove them but when she finenally goes for her maiden voyage their will be a lot of exspreimenting an ive may have a chap on anther site who wants to see her an he says he will video her an put it on utube as he has an account on it so see what an how she progress through this yr but tonight i loaded up all the batts an all S/S AN GAVE HER A RUN AN IT WENT ALL OK so looking good as at the moment im now wireing in helicopter power wires to go up to the flight deck

WELL Dave as i exsplained to him it will be a short notice job  on his phone by txt unless we get nice wheather for a few days altogeather as with the great british wheather it cant be trusted but the gent is not comin  to far as he lives in suffolk so not to big a journey an some other want to see her but again getting them to understand that she may not go ethier as the rds around here have pot holes an are not great if i can get her there whole i think it will be a miricle
but this will not happen for at least another yr so plenty of time an ive also got to make up her carry cradles an they are big an will take a month or so but will do this in the summer if we get one lol
