St Canute radio control?
« on: October 14, 2007, 09:46:46 PM »

Hello all, Just joined site and just started St Canute tug.
I cannot decide whether to power up the tug or not, if I decide to do it later will I find it difficult to convert model?  Also since I have never done radio control before roughly how much will it cost me to put a basic set up in.

Cheers Bodger

Hi Bodger,
Because the opening in the deck to reach the inside of the hull is rather narrow, it won't be easy to make it RC in a later stage. Altough it 's possible, prepare yourself to get fiddeling about with that.
If you do decide to put in RC equipement later, don't use the propshaft and propshafttube that Billing provided in the kit, those really s**k!
Lots of fun and succes with your build.

Regards,

A!H.

Hi Bodger, There has been quite a bit posted about this model recently by myself and Jan and Prolober so to avoid repetition can I suggest you do a search on this site and it should throw up all the previous stuff. Cheers Graham  O0
