Ah, I see.
what time we starting?
I may have to drive the pickup, if so I would have to bring the dog. Would that be a problem?
You should contact Brian k , there are horses at the pond.
He would be tied to the pickup, as I don't like chasing after him, lol.
What's Brian's screen name?
His email address is here at the bottom of the page: http://www.southeastattacksquadron.org/eventinfo.shtml?115_9_31_57
Email sent. Thanks.
Well, my schedule just got messed up, so I have no idea what I will be doing yet. Grrrrr.
Congrats to the SAS crew for putting on a great event this past weekend in Statesboro. I had a great time and look forward to future battles with this classy group of battlers.
Did anyone have to go swimming for a boat
I'm sure somebody did....
I did not partake in any full body immersion retrievals myself, but others did!
Like to report that the Tyng Mogador ran like a champ. The new batteries, motors, and props pushed the little DD up to 22 seconds quite nicely AND no burnt brushes this time! The cannon was a bit inconsistent the first day but upgrading to Black Diamond BB's took care of that.
I have a Le Terrible and shes actting up on me :'(
Sorry I missed this. But things just didn't work out for me to be there.
Steve, It was nice to meet you! you have a nice Mogador she did great. Quality BB's makes a difference for sure
Pics from the event.
I take it that those Fletchers had stability problems.
Nah! They floated pretty (that is until some clumsy BB would run over them). Phil from Vac-U-Boat has learned from the experience and is adding some hull depth to the little Fletch to increase stability. FYI, the Fletchers ran really nice except for this one issue.
Honestly, I think that the hull is fine as-is, just had a high metacentric height problem. The motors can be mounted lower, and the gun was not as light as I build for a destroyer. I will find out for myself, since Phil brought me a kit. Review and build thread to follow
