Über mich

Mein Bild
Willkommen auf meinem Blog! Ich heisse Kai, bin Baujahr 1974 und hier geht es um mein Hobby: RC (radio control), also ferngesteuerte Modelle, hauptsächlich Autos und Boote im Elektrobereich. Meine Leidenschaft für RC begann 1981 und endete zunächst 1990. Dann habe ich 2004 mein altes Hobby wiederentdeckt und seitdem begleitet es mich mal mehr mal weniger häufig durchs Leben.

Systems maiden voyage

 First run of my new pride and joy, the Graupner Systems offshore catamaran. It went incredibly fast, almost too fast for the little pond. It will try a smaller prop next time. All equipment stayed pretty cool, even after half an hour of testing. It's powered by a 3060kV motor @ 11.1V. Summer will be great!! more pics here and a video here.

Systems - update #5

All electrics now installed. It's running a 3060kV motor @ 2 x 3s lipo for now, but might be changed to a 6s setup. Looking forward to first test run!

Lots of work went into the catamaran in the meantime. The hull is now somewhat finished and waiting for being painted. The motor and rudder mount are already installed. electrics and water cooling had been fitted but are now dismounted again for painting procedure.
