The boat turns in it's own length. I used 1/8 lite ply for the bottom & 3 ribs. 1/16 ply for the sides, transom, cabin, roof, and deck. Took about 6 hours to cut all the parts with a box knif.
It will take longer to paint it then build it. All assembled with thick CA. total build time was about 8.5 hours.
I can have these laser cut. about $ 50 with motor.

I agree with Lepinske, maybe you SHOULD start your own thread, instead of pirating his---.

I have a nearly unbreakable rule against buying model kits in any form, but thanks though.

Does anyone have any kind of drawings of a micro 9 they could send me, going to try to make a micro micro 9 around 9" in length.

Hi Dave,

I took the basic shape and scaled it to 9", simplified the construction and adjusted it to suit 1/64" and 1/32" ply or balsa. Part patterns will be ready later today or tomorrow. you'll have to work out your own motor mount depending on what you will power it with, and you might want to fiddle with the third bulkhead's position to accommodate whichever battery you choose.

9" Lil' Salty plans

**Plans Updated** Now that I know how to make a 1:1 PDF these will print correctly on 8.5x11 paper without scaling.



I left out part patterns for the cabin since thats up to you how you want to design it, the one I have shown in the orthographic views is how I build mine.

Since it only takes 2 small sheets of plywood I'm definitely going to build one in this size very soon.

Let me know your motor and battery choices.

Thanks a lot it's what I was looking for. I'm going to try "Plastruct" sheet styrene for my build.

The 52cm 'Big Salty' build is coming along, photos tomorrow of the progress so far.

I'm trying to decide whether to stay with 2x 4,5Ah 6V SLA batteries, which I'm not so impressed with in my springer regarding usable capacity, or build a massive 2S15P pack built with some surplus 1,3Ah lithium ion cells I got a deal on. Upside would be 19,5Ah useful capacity, downside would be the 9+ hour charge cycle at 2.5A. You can see in the image the red+ and black- taps, with a center tap in orange for balancing. If I'm not mistaken, several cells with slight imbalances charged in parallel would balance each other out as only the low voltage cells would draw current, is this right?

The cells normally are built into 10S2P power tool packs that have no balancing taps whatsoever. Based on that fact I would dare to guess that a 2S pack with any number of parallel cells would not need regular balancing, just the occasional cell checkup with a volt meter and individually topping up each tier.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

nobody has anything to say about this battery configuration? I need guidance from someone with more experience.
