Just these here.http://rctruckandconstruction.com/showthread.php?t=2859 When I built it I wasn't as much of a shutterbug as I am now.

Thanks for the compliments.

I am as much of a dry lander as there has ever been, I don't know nothing or care nothing about boats but both of those are beautiful! Amazed at the work you turn out.

Thanks for the compliment.

The more that I work out of my shop, the more of a land lover I become too and although I have missed being on the water the last few months I really enjoy working on these model things it would seem...lol I can see another aluminum boat in my future someday.

Thanks guys. I have been wanting to upgrade this to a 2.4 TX/RX for a long time but just hadn't got around to it. I have also been collecting some other devices for it too so with the arrival of some parts last week I decided to open things up and make the changes.

I used a 6ch Orange RX and my DX6i for radio gear and a couple of electronic switches from Hobby King to control my lighting and the newly added water pump.

I picked up this $5 pump from Princess Auto a few weeks ago thinking it may work for this project. It turns out that it works perfectly so I will be buying another if they still have stock. On our real fish boat we have a seperate engine that runs our lighting and one of our wash down pumps. It uses a heat exchanger and runs sea water through the exhaust manifold to help cool the engine. One through-hull picks water up near the keel and the other spits it back out above the water line. I used the same setup in the model and it actually looks fairly realistic when operating.


Here's a couple videos of it in action once I was finished doing the work. It was quite winding yesterday and in the first video the boat almost rolls over in a big gust of wind! It blew the skiff right off of the roof!

Nice video, the gust of wind came as a nice surprise! Looks sharp with the outriggers fully out. Gotta love Princess Auto for cheap gear. I'm pretty sure I saw that pump, but had so use for it at the time. It seems to serve your purpose well.
