Model Slipway Kit 1920’s Puffer boat- RC Ready. This is a Vac form kit.
The “Puffer” is a traditional general purpose steam ship used to carry just about anything around the West Coast of Scotland. This highly detailed model is based on a 78ft Puffer.
The model is best fitted with a micro-servo for steering, such as the HiTech HS55. We also found that the same manufacturer’s Feather 4-channel receiver was ideal, although a standard 2-channel receiver is small enough to fit easily inside the hull. We recommend the use of an electronic micro-sized speed controller such as M/Tronik’s “M/Sonik4/1 Marine” or ACTion’s P68A. Both of these have a Battery Eliminator Circuit which enables you to run both the motor and RC gear from the same battery pack. The motor supplied with the kit does not require any further electrical suppression.
