Re: Something different rc outboard motor

Just a little update.

updated the shape to better reflect the real motor.
Very much harder to draw than the original square motor but I think much more aesthetically pleasing.

Re: Something different rc outboard motor

Yes, pity about that but will get longer flex and place out of sight in the bow as it needs more weight forward anyway. Then all controls will be hidden.
Originally had it under the floor but that just proved a confounded nuisance with wires all over the place.
Thanks for all the complements
Cheers

Re: Something different rc outboard motor

Well it's all pretty much done. Very happy with the result. Boat has a ton of acceleration as you can see in this vid and plenty of speed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1CX2PyUh0o Final Video Pretty darn cool for something developed from nothing and "printed" Now I'll add some more detail and the...

Re: Something different rc outboard motor

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2M9ajBYElo Update, disappointed at first but swapped out the cheap 12V can for a decent 7V motor as it is a 2 cell system. Nothing was water cooled but nothing got particularly warm. Only used 500mah out of 2100, more than enough performance for what I want. More set...

Something different rc outboard motor

Thought I'd try something different for a change. Need a better scale motor so drew this completely from scratch.
Hope to test it this weekend if all goes to plan.

Re: universal 550dt tractor 1/12 FINISHED

why the tractor was built in the first place.
Adding scale detail is easy with a printer. Almost cheating. :twisted:

Re: universal 550dt tractor 1/12 FINISHED

Unit slides up and off leaving just two guides on the dash. These are just held there with double sided tape so no damage to the boat.

Re: universal 550dt tractor 1/12 FINISHED

Little job for the boat. Using the tablet for navigation allows more screen on the Lowrance for scanning and more importantly, most lakes in new Zealand don’t have charts so I’ve scanned and geotagged a paper chart to use.

Re: universal 550dt tractor 1/12 FINISHED

Chang I just Spackle any parts I want smooth then give several light coats of Dulux grey sanding primer. As a lot of the tractor parts are galvanized I left it at that. The orange is again Dulux spray paint but I can't tell you what the blue is as it's at the beach. It is a special paint for the tra...

Re: universal 550dt tractor 1/12 FINISHED

Well that’s it from me on this one. Will make up a dashboard sticker, rear number plate, put a black circle around the headlights and somehow I lost its toolbox so that'll need replacing at some stage over the next few weeks. Thanks for your interest. :lol: Oh and the one weak spot is the steering w...

Amazing the silly simple ideas.

Intelligent simplicity at it's best!!!
