Default Is this a good boat????? Graupner Cat.

I was wondering is anyone has had experience with this boat? I've been looking at it for a while. Thanks.

I looked at this hull a few weeks ago thinking about running a .15 nitro in it. The only flaw I could see was it appeared to me that it was a wood hull that you have to build. That turned me off to it but all the reviews I read were good.

Not much help. Just a couple of cents.

The Graupner Systems used to be my first RC boat. A really cool boat, but a .15 is to small for this hull, go with an .21!
Here are 2 videos (DivX coded) where you can see my Systems in action:

The hull is made of ABS plastics, not wood!

That's strange because I read the setup tips on building one. I was going to buy one until I found out I had to build all of the small wooden peices together. I can't find the info now so maybe I'm just crazy. Good luck.

All I could get on the download was audio. There is a video error. Sounds good though.

The videos are DivX4 coded, so you need a DivX codec for your mediaplayer. You can get one here
