Nord Icelandia on the Trent and mersey canal sailing through ice.
Nord Icelandia is a semi-scale representation of a modern-day scientific and oceanic survey ship.
Working features for this model include a swinging stern gantry type A-frame, working navigation lights, rotating radar and a winch that tows a mock up of a sonar side-scan.
The model itself has a 6chan radio inside her, with at this time, channel 5 being unused. Under the front superstucture there is the main battery and the 2 auxiliary batteries, (these being a 6v sealed gel-cell battery for the main propulsion and radio equipment, a 4.8v nickel-cadmium type for the LEDs that provide lighting, and a 2.4v pack to provide power for the radar), also under the front is the reciever itself, a switch for the lights on the mast sides, and two 15Amp speed controllers. In the superstructure itself there is a hacked up servo for the radar.
Under the back deck there are the two motors and rudder servo, with the winch servo being located inside the rear superstructure block, accessed through the hatch in the roof.
The A-frame has a master servo on the left had side of the model with a stripped out slave servo on the right hand side, the slave is a servo that has been totally stripped out except for its gearset.
The grinding noise you can hear is the radar seeker drive motor wirring away, the whine comes from the main propulsive motors, and is perfectly normal
