    Dirk, your English is just fine. It is plenty good enough for us to understand. Unfortunately, I am personally not interested in boats. BTW, I spent six years in Der Snee Eifels at Bitburg and Spangdhalem Air Bases while in the USAF. I noted a flying club at Wiclich not far from Spangdahlem but never had time to check them out. Good luck on your boats.

    Thanks for the vids Dirk, very impressive, the V hulls handle the turns very differently to the other models.

    I don't speak German but I understood your comment at 1:13 in the first vid.. LOL..

    Beautiful scenery also. All the best.

    Spectacular Dirk. I remember seeing the Miss Bardahl hydroplane many years ago and the Miss Budweiser just a few years ago at lake Meade in Arizona. You have done a marvelous job of recreating the Miss Budweiser in scale. I am impressed by the speed and I imagine it must be difficult to handle a boat at those speeds/ Thank you for sharing the videos and please continue to post here. We are all RC and modeling enthusiasts here.

    hello
    1:13 LOL
    it was a litle bit to near ... i saw just a rooster :-) :-)
    that was the last video, the ohter are test runs about the last winter and this year.
    the litle mono ... it jump around the corners.. :-)

    @topspin
    thx !
    yes, the speed is o.k.
    lipo 10S2P
    motor plettenberg 370/50 A1S
    prop octura x455/3
    according to gps ~ 100-110 km/h ( 65 -68 mph )

    at top speed corners that`s a bit under steering , but i think i must control the turnfin.
    it spin around the nose ( it that correct ??? nosespin ??? n)

    have a nice day
    dirk
