"Legal Limit" Express Cruiser
Original design "Express Cruiser" type boat. 19-inches long old home-made fiberglass hull built in UK in the 1970s and rescued from previous owner's garage. Model built during April-July 2015. Approx. 1/22 scale. Real life boat could be a 32-footer (9.75m) yacht. 3mm 9v LED navigation lights system. Runs with a Biao123 A2122 brushless motor paired to an MTroniks 15A speed controller, NIHM 10.8V small battery, 2mm shaft and a 30mm 3-bladed plastic propeller. This was a particularly challenging concept since I had no idea what I was looking for and it came out a bit heavy for its size plus the reduced below deck space factor. However, it proved very rugged and dependable.
