Like many of you, I have a few thrusters on order, in this case a pair of T200’s for a large scale 1:27 RC model of a Damen 2310 ASD tug. Make no mistake, this model is being built for towing and bollard-pull comps at clubs throughout Australia.
I needed a high (perhaps these will qualify as stupidly high, given the application) power density drive in a small package and these fit the bill, with a definite plus in the inherent water cooling of the design. Needless to say, I had to become a kickstarter backer as soon as I saw them!
However I’m still not sure on whether to bother with fitting blue esc’s as the same quantity of slip-ring contractors will be required in each mount either way.
In order to do so, custom DIY azimuth mounts will need to be made for these units, and once they arrive early next year, you’ll find an account of the trials and tribulations i’ll be going through here along with any drawings/ CAD files, etc. If successful, it’d be nice to see these showing up on other models, even USV’s???
