Site For Building Radio Controlled Ships from Scratch
Created by James Tuxbury
We went out on November 30, what a wild day the destroyers ran
really well in very high waves, the highest yet.
I tried to retrofit a car battery in the cruiser, it ran pretty well
on the trip to the boathouse
but had to run topless on the return. The car battery made the center of gravity to high so
its back to low profile
motorcycle batteries. It floundered all over the place and I couldn't make it have good ballast, as
soon as the superstructure
went on it began to list. Anyhow there were no crashes the water was clear no seaweed
no obstacles no power
problems. We were at the basin around 9:15, and ran solid until 2:30. temp 51 and
windy and sunny
Lots more to come next year.
This site is designed for those individuals who are interested in the development
and enjoyment of Radio Controlled Ships built from scratch.
Below are some of the ships that I have made over the years.
