I had fun Sunday in Ocala. I just wish there were more people there. I know there are alot more r/c airboaters in central Fl. than just us four. Come on out, we have fun, but it would be more fun with more people and boats. Dennis

Would like to set up the track and run some races. Hopefully we can get some good pics and videos. I haven’t had time to fix my mudmasher but I may do a quick patch job on it so I will have a boat to run.

Video onboard my airboat today:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4Zp906bKSg[/youtube]

Running great until it hooked & flipped. Seems to be my theme lately.

Maybe when we meet again, and the weather is more cooporative, I'll turn the camera around and chase your gassers (provided you slow down some!), and we'll get some other video. Also want to see if I can talk Dennis into mounting an adhesive camera mount to the deck of his boat so we can get some onboard video of his rig.

Yes, today was a fun day even with the rain. We ran our boats quite a bit and did'nt even hurt anybody or our boats. Sure would like to see more people show up and have fun with us. My Aligator Tours boat hit the water for the first time since I modified the hull. Seems to have made a big improvement over the narrow hull. I will be able to run it some more and evaluate the difference next week. Dennis
