    That's a nice paint job, the boat seems to really move too. Would have been nice to hear the boat though. I had to mute the music. What kind of run time you get?

    Thank you for clearing that up.



    Good advise about the sanding. This brings on another question. Does the simple act of keeping the ESC cool, add to the overall amperage it can handle? I read...

    Tore apart a couple of cheapo florescent light fixtures and came across these in the electronic ballasts.
