22 November 2013 by Rod
If you want to convert your Small 34" Fairey Huntsman or 37" K D Perkasa model boat kit into a radio controlled model you will require the following accessories: First of all you will need the excellent: Planet T5 2.4GHz 5 Channel Transmitter & Receiver Set which has been designed for crystal-free operation, and has a range up to 100 metres (always perform a range check before use). However some customers report using successfully over 100 meters. With this we suggest you use: Viper Marine Forward & Reverse Speed Controller 25Amp which is a Brushed Speed Control designed specifically for use in RC boats. This Speed Controller has a 25Amp motor limit, which means you can use any DC Brushed motor as long as the current drawn by that motor does not exceed 25Amps under load (with the prop connected, under water). Other required products include: Planet T5 2.4GHz 5 Channel Transmitter & Receiver Set Viper Marine Forward & Reverse Speed Controller 25Amp Single Standard Servo - RC3S Lead Acid Battery 12V 7Ah - BAT12V7 Electric Motor 9.6V - G7307 Heavy Duty Prop Shaft M4 x 30cm Tube - PSU2/12 Universal Coupling Joint - UCJ Coupling 4mm threaded for PSU2...
