Hey guys, I have one of these thats 1/2 built and I have the SS rail for it too. I have run out of space and time. I was considering selling it. Is it worth trying to sell, are they hard to come by? Thanks

ORIGINAL: smirniotisice

New pics almost done did my first float the other day to find out where the waterline is for the bottom paint.
just bought speed controls, prop shop props, the steering thing from harbor models, and four 7 cell 5000mah packs.
If you don't mind me asking, how did you attach the deck railings to your boat?

Timjz,

I am only about 30 minutes north of you in Plymouth. As for attaching the railings on the Donzi, I drilled holes in the deck and epoxied the rail into the front deck. The rail is very secure and I haven't had any problems with it. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your Donzi.

Hi Crossbow,

That post is almost a year old, try sending him a (PM) private message to see if he still has it.

Hi Crossbow,

The answer is mostly about budget.

Like anything you get what you pay for. The Astroflight 25's or 40's direct motorsare the recommended motors for the Donzi but they are high end motors. M.A.C.K. Products Model Marine also have very good quality motors that will run the Donzi as well. For Mack, give them a call for power recommendations and then comparethem toAstroflight. Astroflight are running brushless motors these days but am unsure if MACK is too..

www.astroflight.com/index.php

www.mackproductsrc.com/mack_power.htm

If you are looking for low budget motors and don't care about quality then experiment with cheap 600-900 size motors and see what works for you.

Good luck and post pictures!

-Rich.

Old Thread but going to try and see if anyone reads this! I just got a Donzi Z65 off eBay. I also bought Astro Flight 40s and have the Dumas running gear with 1 3/4" 3 blade props (Dumas was great, got all this new). I have two 40amp Viper Marine ESCs. I was thinking of using 2- 12v 12amp batteries but when I look at the specs of the motors I am not sure if that is good enough. Not great at the electric math. Opinions? Am I good or did I buy the wrong stuff. I want her to run at a nice speed able to get on plane but not zoom around at an unrealistic scale speed.
