Hunter Valley Model Marine Club

HVMMC

HVMMC

The Hunter Valley Model Marine Club is situated in Maitland NSW.  Model boat races in Australia know the venue as Possums Puddle.  The HVMMC is one of the only model boat clubs in Australia with dedicated access to the pond everyday of the year.

It boasts a great member base of people from Sydney to Newcastle and runs petrol, electric and nitro model boat classes.

We recently joined the club and here is a quick video from our first visit!

Model Boat Club of NSW

The Model Boat Club of NSW was originally established in 1965 and currently calls the Sydney International Regatta Centre home. It’s regarded as some of the best water in the world for model boating due to consistently smooth conditions.

Whilst the club thrives on nitro and electric classes, there are still many members running larger petrol boats. Here is a video of a recent club practice day. As you can see from the video, everyone had a great day out on the water. You can find out more about the club and it’s history by visiting their website. http://www.modelboatclubofnsw.com/

Everingham ‘Race Special Edition’

We’ve been keeping this one under wraps for some time now, but are excited to finally share video footage of a brand new Australian made RC hull. The Everingham ‘Race Special Edition’ is in it’s final stages of development and last weekend we were invited to witness it’s first extensive water test.

As you can see in the footage, this is not your average scale replica of the full scale Everingham hulls. Instead Gary and Bert Everingham have been hard at work over the past six months building a competitive race mono.  Based on the results of last weekends water test, it’s safe to say they are onto something great with this hull!

Torpedo Race Engines Video

Checkout the video of one of our basher boats packing some serious punch with a new Torpedo Race Engines 29.5cc Zenoah.

Shake down – MCM 46″ Catamaran

Quite a few of the boys headed down to the flooded Hawkesbury river this morning for a run (we are not scared), unfortunately our footage was average at best (blame Aaron). However here is a quick video of the new MCM 46″ Cat shaking down a fresh 29.5cc motor.

Will most likely pull out this 29.5cc motor and swap it for a fresh 30.5cc in the coming days. The video shows a very mild tune on the needles. However keep posted, fairly confident you will see these hulls hauling ass in the coming weeks!

45″ Typhoon ‘Super Big’ Mono

Recently we have been supplied with a bunch of hulls from Typhoon.  A brand of model power rc boat hulls and hardware from Thailand, very popular in South East Asia.  These hulls are sharp and designed for fast point to point racing. Here is a quick video of Dan from RC Boat Builder running the ‘Super Big’ mono powered by a Torpedo Zenoah engine.

40″ Mono – Modified Zenoah G300

We went for a short run this morning, here is a video of the Thurgarcraft 40″ powered by a modified Zenoah G300. Second run, still allot of dialling in to go, but it’s coming along really nice.

You can find all of the photos taken during the build process of this boat here.
