Default SI 60 series kit first run

This past winter I built an SI 60 series kit and outfitted it with an O.S. .61fx and a speedmaster rudder. I had it painted at a local body shop with base cote/clear coat paint.

Today was the first run after break in.

Enjoy.

Very nice Crispyspa. Looks like it was really moving. I wonder how fast your heart was beating on that close pass. Some day I will buy one of those SI 3s and try it out. Dennis

Man she sure did look good screaming on the water. My 20 series will be showing up on my front door soon.

It is a speedmaster rudder that I had laying around. It's meant for a giant scale (60/90) so I cut it down.

a better match would be the 40 rudder.
