• Model Boat Ponds Around the World

    Found this while searching RumRunnerRacing. The idea is to better expand the visibility of meeting places for us Rc boaters around the world. I'm not sure who stated it, but they deserve a bunch of credit.



    Model Boat Pond Locations
    How to add your pond.

    1. Click here Google Maps Link for Rc Boating Locations
    2. Click the link in the upper right corner of Google Maps to sign into Google if you are not already signed in.
    3. Once you have signed into Google you will see a red EDIT button above. Click it.
    3. A Push Pin icon will appear in the upper left corner of the map. Click the Push Pin icon and place it on the map where your pond is.
    4. After placing the Push Pin on the map a Text Box will appear where you can add information about the pond location. Please include details about the pond such as Name, Running times, Directions, Contact person(s), Club affiliation (if any), website link, types of power systems allowed, etc.

    Just asking if you go from a 3/16 bore prop octura and open it up to 1/4, in a saw type setup would it still be strong enough?

    Anyone using a NiMH battery?

    I do, in all my transmitters - run all summer long.

    Charge them at 160ma, take's overnight - fast charging kills NiMH batts - those, 7.2v

    EC5's am I safe

    The ec5 can handle that load. The bearing in the motor is a little worn that's the reason for the little play.
