I made this model around 2 - 3 years ago and apart from trying to test it with some brand new NiHm batteries that kept going flat, and a couple of blown fuses I eventually gave up trying to sail it until the other day, when I decided to re rig it inside with a new 3.2amph 12v gel cell battery.............

well, the result down on the pond at Fleetwood ( the small one at the end, as I had had failures before and didn't fancy waiting an hour whilst it drifted in) and set her going...............I was very pleased with her for .....................all of 3 - 4 minutes........where she stopped dead in the water again....................Oh sod it I thought!!!.......and it was at the far end of the lake with the wind blowing my way.............so another 15 minute wait.....................but, as she got closer I began to lift the spirits............she hadn't failed at all................it was the fault of some toe rag who comes down to the lake..........feeds the b****** sea gulls and then throws the plastic bag in the water instead of taking it home...............see the same people regularly doing it, and you get a mouthful and threats of violence if you tell them about it.....................

but the boat floated well, got up on the plane well and reversed well when she hadn't a placky bag wrapped round both props...............sadly the weather has been awful since........but looking forward to another play next week when we are promised better weather.
