OK, looks like it may be Arthur Foss, judging from the style and colors.

Sorry to get off track -- it just looked really neat!

question from a novice


Hello all,

I think i have read just about all of the trhead. Took me a while though
Nice plans for a starterboat.

I got some questions:

As I am new to this type of moddeling, I would like to know what propshaft to use.
When buying one is it compleet? axle outertube seals. Webshops I visited do not seem to be very fourthcoming with additional info in the productpages.

Could someone please direct me to a compleet set Lenght 7" or 8" 18cm or 20cm.?
Come to think to it for the rudder gear would be nice.

Would a lubrication -"tube" or what it is called. be adviseble?

For the motor I am thinking Graupner 500E
And for Esc Mtroniks Viper Marine 15 ESC I only have my doubts about the 1.2A BEC. Will this be enough?

Oh yeah...how much pull does the rudder need (strength of the servo kg.).

I know lots of questions, I am just starting, and yes I read it almost all.

Thank you all

John

It looks like you have made some good choices.
As to the shaft. Youcan get complete sets, stern tube/bearings (brozeor oil Do NOT use ball bearings under water) Shaft, lock nut, and collet.
I would suggest 4mm shaft as there is a very wide selection of props for this. Just get the length stern tube you need and the shaft will be over length, just cut to size.
I have been using Cornwall models lately, good selection and the prices are good. They also ship fast.

In our country, we use 55T - 70T 540 motor for crawler cars. They are run without a gear at 7.2 v.
It doesn't need cooling. Although summer of our country is very hot , it has no problem.
We use reversable ESC for cars . I recommend to use good prop as possible. A prop influences the performance of SPRINGER greatly.
