    RE: FIRST BUILD

    I just took another look at your boat I realy like the way you painted it with the blue yellow and silver , I had noticed that when my boat was running away from me I had a hard time seeing it dark color blended it with the water, mite paint the rudders yellow,,, then the boat should show up better from a distance

    RE: FIRST BUILD

    That's exactly why they are yellow a last minute change. I'm going to breakup the yellow with some other color at some point. here's a video of the boat on 3cell, I think it's good I just need to get a handle on the driving part.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TketX7dVcrY

    RE: FIRST BUILD

    Sweet - looks fast enough on 3. I notice a tendancy to spin out occasionally - on one of my small light foam boats I had put a skeg that measured about 1/8" tall and 3" long tapered from nothing to 1/8", allowing it to still go over weeds and operate on grass but it improved the tracking a TON. That thing looks squirrly as heck, and the skeg may just make it 4 cell capable.

    RE: FIRST BUILD

    I tryed that skeg. Worked great I only got to run one pack thru, it I used two 800 mah packs that I had for my crawlers so there was ahandling change from the other pack which was heavier and could not move the weight back for my cog.Thanks for the help.Probably won't get any more runs in till this weekend.
