Suitable for Radio Control
BY W. BECK
FOR those people who get pleasure from watching a fast power model cutting a pre-determined pattern through the water. Nymph will admirably fill the bill without the complications of radio control. Further, the pattern is variable to choice, either by changing the operating cam for another of different shape or by altering the original setting of the rudder by rotating the quadrant fitted to its stock. The cam is driven by a clockwork or electric motor running at a final speed of approximately 1 rev. per duration of cruise, and there are several ex-government mechanisms well suited to this use.
Another ingenious but equally optional fitting is a clutch which enables the boat to be placed in the water with the prop stationary, thus avoiding engine stall and/or the customary shower of spray. Very little modification is necessary to lock the clutch lever out enabling the motor to be started free. Designed in. too, is an airflow which enables air to pass the engine for cooling and exhaust removal, the engine being in a self-contained bay which prevents fuel, etc., from spreading to every corner of the hull.
