This is my project. The hull was a gift and I intend to put a large brushless and as many cells as necessary (I fly electric RC).
I had to order running gear from the US as its nearly impossible to get parts in Australia. (The internet has made it too easy for individuals to import, so there is no company importing high speed electric parts)

Here's my old Playtron Candy E.P. boat taken out of storage & refurbished with modern electronics. This is an early 1980's boat that still has a lot of zip despite it's "oldschool" design.

I remember the Candy; I wanted one of those back when they were new. How big was it anyhow? What sized motor did it have? I think this Glastron Scimatar is what they modeled it after, now one of the more rare full scale powerboats. Anyone remember that 80's song "Candy?" I think its from the same time period as the model!

Hello Tommygun,

I see the simililaties between these two boats. I have to agree with you that this is a racing or sport version replica of the full scale Glastron Scimatar powerboat.
The Playtron Candyboat is a "rough gem" in my RTR powerboat R/C fleet. This boat measures 22.5 inches from bow tip to rudder. It is 7.5 inches wide at the stern. It turns quick & ocassionally "spins out" if a turn is incorrectly executed. She weighs a mere 2.40 lbs at the scale ( with 7.2 volt sub C cells included).

This boat was originally equipped with a 540 class Mabuchi 27 turn electric motor. Upgraded presently to a 550 class 20 turn double Kyosho mega Motor. This boat is at par (equal) in speed with my new 2004 Kyosho Airstreak 500 E.P. & is virtually unsinkable due to it's built-in styrofoam floatation rarely found in early 1980's r/c boats.

Hi Guys,
Well first let me just say nice boats all. Here is some info and some pics of mine. First up is my nerly five year old Traxxas Villain. She has trinity 17 turn speed gems with P-94 brushes, and RC-hydros controller, a traxxas high torque steering servo, a custom stainless steel motor plate, and off the back, ballanced polished and sharpened X447's, custom CSC Performance Turn Fins, and a Traxxas water pick up for water cooling. Here are a few pics,



Now for my latest creation, and Aeromarine Titan 40, Graphics are vinyl and are taken from an old Cigarette deigns and turned over into Donzi graphics. Sponsor logos are also vinyl. Canopies are all airbrushed by Dave Labbs of The Airbrush Shack (www.theairbrushshack.com). This guy does amazing work! The design was taken from the full size Donzi that raced in the APBA circuit the past few seasons. I was extremely particular about getting this think to looks scale and I think it came out pretty good.

Inside, power is coming from an Aveox 3630 1.5 on a Fine Design tranny running a 1.51:1 gear ratio. Feeding the hungry Axeox is a Hacker master 70 and 12-16 GP 3300 cells. The controller is mounted on a custom lexan mount. The Airtronics receiver sits in a custom water-tight lexan box, that feature a removable film container lid to allow any moisture to evaporate between runs. The cover is left off when ever the boat is not in the water. The Hitec HS-645MG servo delivers over 130 oz/in of torque to keep her pointed in the right direction. The servo is mounted on a custom carbon fiber “L” mount that is adjustable via and aluminum spacer to allow the servo to be repositioned and the linkage attached to other holes on the aluminum horn. Power for the radio system comes from 4 AA cells mounted in their own custom lexan box.
In addition to the factory carbon fiber on the floor an additional layer was added forward of the stock carbon that extends the carbon all the way to 18” forward of the transom. The tranny is held in place by custom carbon fiber braces that are mounted to the inside of the freeboard and the tranny with JB Weld. The inside of the freeboard was covered with a layer of carbon prior to installation of the braces in order to dissipate any loads from the motor transmitted to the braces and any side impacts. This was all put in place because the boat is run in very rough water on a regular basis and prior to the installation of these upgrades there was substantial flex in the floor of the hull. These mods eliminate that and allow the hull to with stand an incredible pounding with out de-aligning the driveline, and at the weight penalty of 1-2 oz. the benefits are well worth it.

Hanging off the back is a Fine all-in-one hardware unit with Fine turn fins. Prop is a meticulously sharpened, polished, and balanced M445. The tabs are standard Aeromarine units mounted flush (yes I know I know don’t tell me!) to the bottom of the boat. Since the boat is run routinely in rough water I opted to mount the tabs flush. This allows me to have full control of the boat using just tabs if I desire, as they act as a full time extension of the running surface and as rocker plates. By lowering them by as little as 2/32” (Measured at end of tab) I can dial the boat for chop, and by raising them I can air the boat out while keeping a substantially forward CG. I spent 3-4 hours getting these perfect they are not above or below the running surface at all, they are flush with in 1/100”. This is truly the way to go for a full time offshore boat, the benefits I have seen far out weight the minimal drag (I plan to test with GPS to see just how much if at all that drag affects speed). They make the boat act nearly 2 in. longer and that is essential in 4-8 in chop. I use them together with CG to keep the boat flying level both in and out of the water. This is truly a fine line as tabs don’t act when they are out of the water and the effects of CG take over. I am really a perfectionist when with comes to stuff like this…!

Here are a few pics,



Hope you guys like em,
Chris
