My electric projects...
The 75 Kph supermono
Robbe Magin One
This is one of the most fun boats to start in the hobby.
This one was offered to me by a friend who built it but never sailed it.
As i like the challenge of making things fast the Magin was quickly refitted with 16 instead of 12 cells and the original motor swapped for a graupner 700 turbo 9.6 volts running a 3 blade 39 mm graupner carbon propellor the speed got up to a nice 40 Kph (gps measured).
But at this speed the boat hopped a lot and was running like a drunk dolphin and not very controllable.
So a set of (reccommended) trim plates were added and this helped a lot the boat is running very nice now and is a lot of fun to drive, as this is a quite cheap boat to build and fast from the kit this is a very reccommendable boat for a beginner.
Key Biscayne (12 years and still going strong)
This is my key biscayne which is 12 years old now.
This has seen a lot of running time and a lot of rebuilds to the drive system.
It started when i wanted a faster boat after trying to get a robbe unlimited (the first version) a bit faster which didnt succeed very well.
Then the Key biscayne came in the first runs were done with a white hull and the ice still on the (big) lake were we ran.
The first setup was the original with 12 cells and the stock 700 motor, also a mechanical speed control was used but this was burnt on the second run (how could i know beginner, el cheapo) and a electronic speed control and 14 cells were put in.
After a few months 16 cells and watercooling to the motor were added and some other mods were done.
A year later a robbe 420 sports was found and this was the ticket to a lot of fun and speed it runs about 50 Kph now but for 8 minutes on a 2000 ma pack of 16 cells.
This setup has been in for the last years but i am planning a mayor rebuild this summer so come back for the updates on this project.............
