Circuit Racing 2015- Elmbridge

Last weekend saw the start of the season for the circuit racing section, hosted by Elmbrige Club.
It was a certainly a sunny day, but there was a strong wind the meant that turns 4, 5, and 6 were going to be a challenge.
For me it was the chance to run some new props to seek out the extra speed we always want.
I didn't have the best of times though with a few problems throughout the day. Heat 1- flat bettery on the pontoon before the start, Heat 2- 400pts, Heat 3- flipped during milling at bouy 5, and heat 4- well there was a disagreement between my boat at bouy 3.
The boat was definitely improved from last year, and I'm looking forward to the next one already.
A big thanks goes to all the organisers, and to Paul Killick for the pics of my boat.

2015 Hydros

So I've finally managed to get on top of preparing my boats for this seasons circuit racing...well nearly. I've got a new cowl for my Carbon KEPS T2, and have made an EVO version of the KEPS to try out some idea's I've wanted to try out for a while.




I'm also going to be running new radio setup as well this season, using the new Hitec Lynx 4S and the Proton 4 receiver with build in GPS courtesy of Hitec. This should hopefully make it even easier to see if any changes are making a real difference.









I can't wait for this season circuit racing opener at Elmbridge, so make sure that you've booked in with Grahame!

Pegasus Evo Update

Just a few more pictures from my build so far. I've made up the tank templates in an attempt to maximise the space I have for fuel, and to carry on with the idea that worked well in my last boat.  I should also have the rear bulkhead in place by the end of the weekend.

As you can see I've also been able to finish off the mounts for all my new Hitec servos.

Pegasus Evo Update

So with my new Hitec servos here I've really been able to get the epoxy out. The shaft and gearbox mounts are in, the tabs were put in tonight and the plan is to get the rudder in tomorrow.

There's only about 4 weeks until the start of the season so I need to make sure I keep it up!
