    Was going to build one from scratch,but I found the kit. It's a nice kit,easy to build. And if I were to by the wood it would cost more than the kit

    How long of a run do you get from a stick pack?

    Thanks blizard05 for the quick response. I think I overestimated the size of the waves so a Springer should handle it...

    Just to be clear, Our Tugster (with our motor and ESC) will run about 80 minutes with a 5000 mah LiPo 2S pack.
    When used with 2 of our 6v Gel Cell batteries, it goes to over 3 hours.

    That 4600 mah pack should do an hour anyway...

    Joe, thanks for the input. I am seriously considering picking one up and run time is very important to me.
