While on my travels to various venues with my Magnum 57, numerous people have suggested that my prop is too big (75mm), although some of these people have not seen the boat even run.  But I was…Continue

I have run into a problem here in the UK before my first race and that is that I have been told that my boat will probably be too loud!  The ruling states the following:  Not more than 80db 10 metres…Continue

Magnum 57 build (complete)

Here are some final pics of how the boat turned out after some 15 hours of building. It's probably worth noting that it didn't take that long because I didn't know what I was doing (well some stuff I did ask Tony about!). But because I wanted to take that long to ensure the boat was well built and no silly mistakes were made. Hopefully this will stand the boat in good stead for the stick that I will be giving it over the coming months...…

Magnum 57 build (part 8)

So with most of the parts assembled the radio tray is now looking like this (note the dual antennas for the Spektrum MR3000 receiver). Also note the inclusion of the WHobbies Power Rod switch. This cant go in many places as access to the switch needs to be easy, so this was the best place I could come up with as any lower would make access to difficult.

Magnum 57 build (part 7)

So, on to the main event, well for me anyway as I had some plans for the radio box...

I had noticed that on a lot of the pics that the wiring was somewhat on show on all of the radio boxes and made them look a little untidy. So I set about trying to tidy the whole thing up a little. I planned to use a 5 cell nicad for the battery box so the hole for the battery should be fine, but the hole for the receiver is way to big for the tiny Spektrum MR3000. I also planned to hide…

Magnum 57 build (part 6)

After fitting the rudder assembly the next task was to fit the trim tabs. The kit consists of the trim tabs themselves, 8 screws and the various screws nuts & bolts to allow the tabs to be adjusted. These are mounted to the transom (one each side) by the four (per side) screws provided, again using a little silicone sealant to ensure a good watertight fit. The instructions clearly show how the adjusters are assembled and fitted to the tab, so I wont go in to detail… Continue

Welcome to the Enforcer Club. The best built boats in the USA by the pioneers of gas rc boating. Great choice too. The Magnum 57 is great in just about any water conditions.
Enjoy your new boat!!

Rudder positon.
When you move the rudders back the drag is reduced and the transom can compress more causing the bow to lift.
When moved forward the opposite occurs and the bow is forced down due to added transom lift.

Hydrodynamics dictates that all submerged objects in motion will seek the surface. The faster you push the object the more lift potential because the water pressure below the object is greater than that above. The bottom of the rudders being flat are in essence a surface tring to reach a plain. Even the wedge surface area of the rudder is causing a lift.
And I thought that I would never use those Physics clases I barely passed.

Hello dear,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my email: lauryn.wake@gmail.com
for the full details.

Have a nice day,

Thanks God bless.
Miss. Lauryn Wake.
