My favorite RC boating scenes at our local lake
« on: April 08, 2021, 03:21:42 pm »

Hi RC model boaters;
I have been enjoying RC boating at our local lake 11km away from my home for many years up to
October two years before.Since then,we have been unable to do that due to the flood by typhoon and covid-19. <:( >>:-( >:-o
However the restoration work of the lake is supposed be complete through this May when we may restart the
long -waited boating again with many members.!! %% :D
Today to begin with  I will post to introduce my boats I have built or modified.
Details and my favorite boating scenes to come later.

Nice boats you have there too.  :-))

Hi KitS;
A great thanks for your very kind comment.! :D
Yes, it is actually so large enough for our RC boating that it looks like an OCEAN for the RC boats. {-)
This is 3km long and 0.27km wide so that once it became one of the candidate sites for the boat races
of Tokyo Olympic Games. But luckily we are now able to use for our RC boating as it is,as evaluated to
require a tremendous amount of money to modify suiting for an official boat racing waters.
As a result,some water sports other than RC boating are permitted here to enjoy like the wind surfing, canoeing
and row boating,etc. O0 ♪~♬~♪~♫~
1;A bird-eye view of our boating site.The place actually we use is central upper water above the small bridge
  on right shore.
2/3;Our club boating scenes in the mid summer.
4;On the too hot day in the mid summer..
5;A member's steam ship sailing powerfully this day
6;My HMS Fencer passing by one another in the opposite direction at about 4-50m off the shore
  at slow speed.. {-)
7;In the windy day of the mid-winter,my Jupiter F-99(1m long)powered by 2200KV brushless water-cooled
  went suddenly into waves fiercely in the very wavy water.The bow went into the water at the moment which I
was so surprised. {-) %%
I am calling the sailing in the wavy water in winter "Adventure sailing in the winter" %%


But, of course, it is not sooo interesting to operate the boat in such a windy day as naturally the boat sometimes
  is influenced by the wind rather than my electric waves of the transmitter, though not to say "out of control". {-)

Hi RC model boaters;
The pics for today are of my luxury cabin cruiser Poseidon(ex-Bright sun named by the ARTR manufacture) modified
mainly at around cabin fittings and air flow window to cool better inside the enclosed hull in addition to the brushless motor water cooled.
This is about 1m long and very fast for a cruiser type boat,and very silent even at higher speed.
Drain of the cooling water is made from the both sides of the hull to cool the hot motor and ESC effectively.
For this purpose,water ingress is from the two hole around the rudder.
And I realised a harem aboard the boat as this is a luxury cabin cruiser. O0 {-) %%
1;At anchor
2/3/4;Onboard harem of my own dream only realised by 1/25 scale.. {-) %%
5;Air intake window
6;Air outlet doors
7;Sailing scene in which a cheerful,sharp and noisy voice of many beauties could be heard... {-)


 Watch the video of the Poseidon sailing fast leaving the wakes sharply as if enjoying the mid-summer sea cruising..

I've seen that photo before somewhere Stan, I remember thinking how real it looked partly because the figures on board look so natural.

Hi RC model boaters;


Pics for today on my Poseidon are just comparisons on some points,or so called "before and after". %%
1;This is a pic of the real boat.
2;While this one possibly at 1/25 of my boat in early stages of modifications.
3/4;After delivery stage
5;One of modifications,left ingress I added was only for ESC cooling,right by manufacture for the motor and ESC, now used only for the motor.
  These are,of course, intended to cool and circulate the water better ,effectively by the independent water flows.
  The cooling water is coming out from the both egresses powerfully by the independent water flows as seen in the
previous video,just as seen in high speed racing boats.
6/7;Repainted to get a traditional and gorgeous atmosphere by this navy blue. {-) O0
