Introduction to "Homebrew"
Forum Name: "Homebrew" Hacks for Model Boats
Description: Open Source Technology for Digital Command, Control and Communications (C3) Systems for boats.
Actually, The System Lords (bless 'em) informed us that we ran out of room with the original description and we had to condense it it down to the above.
So what got left out of the new, improved description but is definitely going to get addressed in this forum?
The biggest word left out was MECHATRONICS,* as it covers such a wide area and so many technical disciplines but, as imposing as the word and concept are, mechatronics is what we attempt to do every time we try to add electronic or mechanical effects to our models. I have yet to meet a successful modeler who is not a serious JOT (jack of all trades) technician, in other words, a mechatronics designer and fabricator.
THE 'HOMEBREW' PHILOSOPHY
This Forum will cleave closely to encouraging the philosophy of the old "Stanford Homebrew Computer Club" style cybernetics culture based around open source hardware and software, open architectures and open source ideals.

You might find exactly what you're looking for here:
and something for the rest of us who are looking for something different.
And for the Duinoids:
Have Fun and don't over-indulge!

My handle on Instructables is "beergome" as it is at a lot of places...
I also use the name "Cerebral Knievel" in various forums.
anywho... I only have two builds up over at instructibles, one for a "rain barrel" I made that reclaims condensation water from my attic mounted central AC unit air handler, and my recipe for a scratch built Whiskey sour. but I got one in the editing stages about that little wooden sloop I have a build log for over in the sailboat section. I'll probably fast track it to go live when they have another RC contest. But the water barrel one got me featured and won me three months of Pro membership to the site.
Lots of knowledge to be found there, I've been a fan for years

Flanking/Backing Control Board System
Great forum. Still looking to see where I should post this. If I am in the wrong place with this send me a pm and ill remove it.

Thats a sweet setup! Does the board let you tune the mix amount. If you have more info to post, you should do a build log in it's own thread, I'm sure you get a lot followers.

Hey Pete, no I don't think I am going to have another forum. I really like this one place to share and talk about concepts for model boating. I just was not sure that this was the place. I am not seeing yet new fun stuff. so I thought I would show this prototype of a flanker board. to answer your question, I think so. the mix is controlled by the pot on the board that is by itself. the other two pots that are next to each other are for centering the rudders.
This desing is drawn up by Leal Kanstein, and another gentalman Keith Lingschid get all the credit for making this idea work. To see this work I got a friend to make up a few pwb's for testing. I am finding that this was done so well that I do not see anything that needs to be changed. Capt. Lee gave me access to the scematic that allowed me to do this. So If I get some ideas to test on this board ill try it and make another video. I have plans of putting this into a tug and getting real info in how well it performs.
