Howzit BC.......thinking is a 'good thing'.....trying to get 'my kids' into the habit....LOL

I guess we could use your 'sexual line of thought' as a working example.....but it could get messy...LOL.....this part has to be kept 'clean'

I'll try to chose my words carefully so that your mind does not wonder....LOL

As you say - when the epoxy is injected into the cavity, the air simply escapes past the syringe nozzle ( its not an air tight fit) although the fit should be snug enough not to allow any epoxy to seep past, so as to be pressurized into the open foam cell surrounds within the cavity for that much needed anchoring. Usually - when you withdraw the the syringe nozzle - some epoxy will expand out of the cavity due to it being under pressure, this excess you simply wipe away......are you still thinking 'technically'.....LOL

Remember !......to turn the threaded studs into the cavity as you position them - as if you were turning them into a threaded nut of sorts. If you simply push it down into the cavity, you will force most all of the epoxy out, not get epoxy into the actual thread of the stud.... resulting a poor anchoring.


I am enjoying the 4cell set up.....just need my metal props to arrive.....I blow the plastic prop blades off most every session....
Looking forward to mastering the 'Carving 360'.....nice move for th e********.....both front hand and back hand.....

Bro'

Drive shaft housing and Stuffing Tube ...........

I use a 10 mm OD / 6 mm ID stainless steel tube end for the drive shaft housing. The stuffing tube is a 6 mm OD brass tube..( epoxied into the S/S)...in which I run 4 mm ID brass bush's either end - for the 4 mm stainless steel solid shaft to run in....

It is 'important' to ensure that the stuffing tube and drive shaft assembly is 100 % true before setting up the motor/mount plate and drive shaft housing for final epoxying.
I use the live center on my lather as a pointer to straighten the assembly out.

The Prop end brass bush is easily removable for cleaning/ greasing.....

The stuffing tube can be reamed out of the Stainless Steel Tube to be replaced if ever need be.

Man !..... those Cookies really worked for me....I better check her 'ingredients'.......I have been charging all day.......

Finished up fitting all the hardware in both boards - and gave the hulls their final 'Gloss Coat'........to be sanded and polished.

This final layer of resin is great for sealing off and supporting the Rudder tube and water pick up/ outlet tubes..... rudder tube in pic will be ground down once resin has cured. The resin floated around the base of the tube seals it well and forms a resin rim that adds much required strength to the set up.....

Just need to spend some time with the Bro's....finish off a few touches hear and their....and then we are done....

These boards are going with 'no electrics'

Have great weekend all......I'm hoping for some good surf.......

Componenets..........

A few guys have mailed me, inquiring about availability of various hardware components.

I am working on putting together a list of hardware :

Bi- Fin (with a choice of post diameter) - Servo tray - 25 mm center to center motor mount plate (to fit into the pod) - Stuffing tube and drive shaft assembly ( 250 mm long - easily trimmed to shorter length) - plastic knurled nuts - motor to shaft couplings .......

The last two pictures show the bush / bush housing fit - the outward tapered rim of the drive shaft bush fits into the beveled cut away with the housing - preventing the bush from traveling up the tube. This is a well tested bushing system, being used in performance rc boating for umpteen years - very easy maintenance and bush replacement.

finishing the Bro' twins..........How to tell them apart....one will get an 'Orange' rash vest ......and the other a 'Lime' rash vest....

I coat the inside of the hatch cover white...gives it an opaque look on the outside and prevents seeing all the running gear through it.

Our Seamstress !............besides being the camera 'lady'...

Lisa-Marie has got this process down to a 'T'..having to use both the over-locker and sewing machine, producing fine snug fitting 'miniature' rash vests.....The 'rash vest' has become a 'standard' issue for Bro' - it definitely gives the Bro 'figure' better 3D dimension and proportion...&...touch of realism - as well as the bright Lycra material colors helping to make Bro more visible in the surf......

As my folks always advised me...... " get a firm footing and your head properly screwed on".........LOL

.....same advise goes for Bro'...make sure you "bond those feet on well and glue that head on properly"....LOL...the dude needs 'integrity' !!!

Including his rash vest - Bro is weighing in at 150 grams (5 ounces)

I use a 'slow cure' epoxy (overnight) - tape up area on hatch cover- roughen up and thoroughly de -grease both surfaces - coat both surfaces with epoxy - press surfaces together ensuring a complete bond (oose out all around) - remove excess - remove masking tape - leave to cure.....

Bro' on a Kyhoso Board...........certainly has a nice proportion......itsFishi ran one of the original Bro's on his modified NQD some time back with good results......

Price = US$ 100 including the rash vest ......shipping would be around $ 20 by air.......'bond on' feet bases.

Sanding down the Final Gloss Coat....

When the final Layer of sanding resin has cured completely .....it requires a few sanding process's to bring out the 'gloss finish'

A good way to remove the resin lip formed around the rail, which is left behind from the masking tape skirt, is to scrape the resin lip away with a blade.....if you try sanding it away, you will run the risk of sanding through the resin layers, hitting the cloth.....which will mean you will have to 'start the layer over'

Once the lip has been removed all around the rails...its time to break out the 'water paper'.....with water /touch of liquid soap - I sand the entire board down methodically with grit # 300 - 400 - 600 - 800 -1200 .....paying special attention 'never to sand through'....

A added a picture of the rudder tube - to show the epoxy core covered by the resin layer.....

Polished finish ....'Gloss Coat'.....

When the sanding process is complete.....Rinse and dry the board down......

First I hand buff the entire board with a Burnishing paste......then I give it a wax polish to bring out the luster...

It takes quite a bit of elbow grease to realise a great shine.....but I love the authentic glass over foam finish.....I use a UV preventer in my resin so the cream foam color remains stable

Saying Good - Bye !...........these fellers are off to France !....we named them...Juan & Pierre

This order was ordered 'without the electrics'....I do however set each board up with a motor - to make absolutely sure that all fits 100%....

Once the clients receive the boards, it will be as simple ABC for them to install their motor - ESC - Servo - water cooling pipes.....prop and battery...

What was impressive to me - the difference between the two boards 'in weight' was only 7 grams........amazing........when all the electrics and battery is installed, the board will weigh between 2 & 2.2 kg's depending on battery size.....

Last 'board' picture is the housing with all the electrics as it should be when installed....( these boards can run 3s or 4s batteries)

Well !..as you can see....plenty of work and detail goes into making these little guys what they are and what they are capable of doing....its been great sharing this build with all......hope you have all enjoyed the process with me....always feel free to post or PM me should you need any questions answered.

Next Bro ******** build is for a client in Mexico !.....Ombre' Bro'

I better get started !!!......just love it !


The complete float'er rcsurf board with Bro surfer - as seen in the pictures (without any electrics) Cost = US$ 650-oo
With all the electrics ( excluding radio and batteries) Cost = US$ 950

I reckon Bro has some serious competition.... John John Florence going for Big Air Rotation moves ! ...must have been watching our rcSurfing vids.....LOL

Surfing style and criteria is certainly 'changing' its tune.....One 'big XXX move'.....can count for way more than a long traditional 'power ride'

For free style surfers - I guess its a case of 'what ever floats your board'.... what ever you enjoy......Personally.....I love the 'Big Moves' = it's 'all or nothing' !

Something off the subject !............for interest sake......perhaps 'nice to know'

Something perhaps interesting for those who don't know....another one of my passions and YPC products is the 1/4 scale F1 Outboard and Inboard rc racing boat. I have raced - designed / developed and manufactured these boats and their hardware for many many years and can proudly say that I have boats racing on most all continents around the world.

I still produce these boats and products for clients (the green one is going to the US) - however I stopped any further Gas Class development at the end of 2011, due to the continued restrictions being placed on them due to noise and exhaust immisions pollution controls, severely limiting the usage.....simply put....its just not economically viable....

I am working on developing ' HVFE ( high voltage fast electric) set ups......the boat design will remain much the same....just the drives will change. Developing the Bro ******** has been a great learning curve for this F1 electric development .....and I am quite exited visualizing what we will be presenting in 2014 in the line of HVFE F1's

Enjoy watching one of our local club races ( Orange boat is me) - all the boats racing are YPC boats

Nice links to the real surfers....

BTW... If your attractive camera girl wife mother seamstress and obviously full time job looking after you... lol... would be interested in makin a red vest for a brosurfer to ride my yet to be finished board i'm keen to buy...

Unfortunately he has to be shipped to Australia... and no worries i'm sure you don't want your dude's on any old boat but hey bro my board is gunna happen i just need more time but makin a dude will put me into next year... Kyosho dude or Lisa will fill the void on the ply decks while testing but rekon your dude would be best fit on the glass deck..

Howzit BC....

Lisa - Marie reckons 'Red is no problem'...shipping to OZ even less of a problem....Shipping would cost around US$ 15 by air.....let us know when you would like a Bro.

Maybe....having Bro hanging around 'drinking all your beer in the cave' whilst he waits for his board to be finished will be a good motivator for you to 'get it done'.....LOL

Got started on the Ombre' Bro for Mexico to- day.....

Filled with a healthy breakfast .....layered with Love....got the Ombre' Bro shaping' complete, as well as the hull lamination...

Working with the board fixed to the 'stand' is an absolute treat. The table it is on , is on castors, so I can rotate it around to set the correct light on the board when comparing rail shapes etc. as well as great when glassing the board....to be able to rotate the table around......

Default RE: Bro ********'s Custom Boards

Hey Bro.

Some in Oz are time poor especialy when fightin off them rabid Koala's eatin our scrambled eggs on toast, giant possums eatin all the cats and dogs and then add in the hungry girlyfriends wanting more and more... wish the little munchers would eat other beasts like employers wantin more and more too and... 

Anyway might go a driveshaft and some of them scrambled eggs on toast too... then again bugger the eggs they will be off by the time they get here.. don't suppose Lisa-Marie would like to visit too... oops that was naughty, you guys would be useless without her, doubt she would want to holiday in a cave with a bear either.... LOL

Anyway enough fun... am using 4mm shafts with threaded props atm except for kyosho. Like your setup but atm don't have a lathe to cut down to 1/8th for the props btw red and yellow seem to be the best colours for me to see so until i paint the board the rider will be the key to see.

Don't see any probs with a flexy bro drinkin my beer either... no way he will beat me to the fridge...  lol

Glassing Ombre Bro's deck........

Two layers of cloth....whetted out with polyester resin...once this has cured, I will apply a filler coat to the deck which fills in the cloth weave and smooths out the wrap cloth irregularities around the rails....... 'before I turn the board over to fit/glass the Pod on...
