SMS Seydlitz Ė Brian (2017)

4.5 units, 24 seconds, German Battlecruiser

 

The Seydlitz is a fantastic ship. It has good gun placement options and very little target area. The pictures are from Nats 2022.

 

 

Brian has a 50 round offset stern gun, a 75 round haymaker, and a 50 round bow sidemount. He runs 1 full unit pump.

 

 

The bow section holds the bottle and regulator. The gun pushes a little to the side to clear the bottle there is yellow foam water channeling in the bow. The decks are fiber glass board.

 

 

The mid section from bow to stern: dry radio box, spot for the batteries, a solenoid, the pump between the two motors, the ESCís, and the drive motors/gear boxes.

 

 

With the batteries in place.

 

 

The stern most section. The stern is very narrow and Brian has a waterproof rudder servo with wire to control the rudder. Stern gun solenoid is seen as well. The decks have magnetic strips to hold them down.

 

 

Rudder control is a bit complicated but challenging to set up in this ship regardless.

 

 

1.25 inch propellers and a 3D printed rudder.

 

 

Back end with tape measure.

 

 

Brian has the option to switch the pump hose from a full pump to a half pump but says he is thinking about removing the half pump restrictor because he never uses it.
