Improvements to the model

The rudder steering arm was found to be not strong enough and that alteration of the rudder to its position on the rudder post difficult. A new system was developed where by the rudder post fixing is in two halves locked together by a nut and bolt.

To alter the position of the rudder to the turning arm the holding nut and bolt are loosening and then tighten up after alteration have been made. A totally successful modification. Also the arm itself was strengthened by soft soldering a piece of flat brass to the top side.

Battery Monitoring Unit

On the first April 2001 the battery checking and switching unit was completed. Testing in the afternoon found the unit proved and ready to be put in the model. Further testing will be carried out next Sunday, lets hope the results are just as successful.
