Got this kit from sunset models as a shrank down version of the 120 kit. The stick sizes weren’t scaled down to standard size so 3/8 spruce was just too small for spars. 1cm carbon square used instead. Wing is SOLID so far.

A while ago (2005) I build this catamaran with 2 Phoenix 125 speed controlers and 2 Graupner inline 700m 24v. brushless motors.
The first time I went sailing, the 2x 16 NiMh cells melted!
So i parked the boat and recently i dusted the thing and decided to try again.
I bought 2 LiPo 6s 22.2v 5400Mah and tried my luck... and failed. Again.
The double speedcontrolers where fried while testing the motors and setup.
Now i need two new speed controlers who can stand the heat, abuse and the current.
Can anyone give mee advice?
I would like to enjoy this boat and stop putting money in this project.

Trying an other hobby is not the answer i expect :-)

It occurred to me ...
That part of the problem lies with the way the pod is a attached to the boom .
3 screws holding it in place to a carbon plate ..
So a lot of force is applied to 3 very small places on launch ..

So before a problem arises , why not just epoxy the pod in place ?
Create a much larger area to distribute launch energy into !
Anyhow , that's what I have done with the Raven 990 ..
I fibreglass reinforced the pod , then glued it in ..
When the Epoxy dries , it should distribute load much more evenly over a much larger area .. ( + the fibreglass wont hurt too much - I hope )
That vertical fin is still weak as ! Next time it breaks , I will cut it out and rebuild it with more carbon reinforcing .

I have issued a product alert : ( Well - for what ever it's worth )

I removed the pod from my Raven 990 and it has a stress fracture @ the same location as my Mini DLG pro ( where it broke )

Major difference between cutting ply and ribs.

Ply requires tough love. Balsa ribs are like cutting through butter. Ply requires saving room on cuts so you can sand to the line. Balsa requires fluid smooth strokes right down the line. If balsa is poetry, ply is a tirade.

Used the drill bit in my hand drill. Blew smoke everywhere. Still looks like a badger made the inner circles.
