Mokai in Borneo
« on: July 08, 2019, 04:32:30 AM »
G'day! My 1st post to this forum.. actually the only forum I've ever been on!  :)
I have 3 Es-Kape in Sarawak, Eastern Malaysia (Borneo) and thought I'd share a vid..(although it's been on youtube for a while)

This was one of the last trips we did due to some servo issues (yeah, while up river in the jungle!) I'm slowly in the process of modifications and converting all the electronics to manual so hopefully August we'll be done and on our way out into some wild jungle areas again!

I really enjoyed your video.   \./8. It looks like the perfect water for enjoying your Mokais.  Having three is all the better.

Cheers mate..
it was definitely a good river to head up but along with the servo issues we also hit a rock (or 2, possibly in those rapids) and broke a section on an intake grate  ??? so thats another job to fix/change all 3 before we head back out.. I'll make up some stainless steel ones I think and get rid of the aluminium! We have to learn to go a bit easier in some of the shallower water over this way :)

Definitely better with the 3! I wouldn't want to be out in some of the jungle rivers alone and get stuck  ;)

Yeah those aluminum grates were pretty fragile. I was fortunate to get a stainless grate from a member here that had made some up, much better. Converting to direct cable control is one of the best things you can do on these though, servos don't belong on boats.
