settling on the tug/tug aquired
« on: March 05, 2011, 14:25:12 »
Well i no i have said this before, but i think i will get this tug an not sell it in a few weeks. Iam waiting on the chap who is selling it to get some more pictures for me to have a look at, an try an pick it up Tuesday when i pass by. I am happy to try an tidy it up, if it needs it?

I am looking at settling on the 1/50th scale at the moment, but would really appreciate an information about the tug. I can make out what looks like intrepid, but looking online iam finding a US aircraft carrier with Concorde on???



Any relative information, or direction would be much grateful

...Hi Guys...

One of the easiest ways of finding what scale a model is built in is to measure the size of the doors...Then  calculate the scale from there...

Hi Chrisuk.  Have you tried  power straight to the motor, but it looks burnt out to me.

I would say it definatley is burnt John, A squick sniff inside the hull should confirm it.

If you are confident with an electric Multi-meter/tester, set it for Amps DC, connect it in series with the offending motor and see if it has an amp draw when operated.

Alternatively disconect the motors from their supply (Important to do this, as your tester wont like supply voltage up it, when checking resistance or continuity) set your meter for resistance and just check the resistance across each motor, see if you have a wildly varying reading between motors, or even a closed or open circuit which will confirm the motors up the swannee.

Also my korts are around 55mm diamiter an 20mm long the props 45-50mm so these are a bit small an need upgrading i would say. so this would not help my motor issue as i will just burn them out

Your motor will not burn out if the props are a bit small, it works the other way props that are to big demand to much from the motor hence they burn out.
