It will be a bit lighter, those tanks you have shown are also a bit heavier than most. IV bags have their place, and work fine, I just find them to be more of a PITA than they're worth for me...

Yes it is.

I ordered some parts from Slimline (a well known RC airplane parts store) a few months ago. Turns out they're out of business, but their website is still up and lets you place orders,...

Galvanic corrosion can definitely be a problem between aluminum and carbon fiber, but it shouldn't take much separation to keep the problem at bay. Even a very thin (think 1/32") piece of lite ply...

My 28" neon pusher airboat

I haven't had an airboat in about 15 years, but got the itch a few months ago and found a fiberglass hull manufacturer on eBay who happened to be near me. I haven't run this boat yet, just finished...

You'll be much better off buying parts and pieces that suit your needs individually, with a hull and hardware from one of the many US manufacturers.

I've had very good luck with my FlySky GT3-B radio on all of my boats and cars over the last 6 or 7 years. You could get the 2.4ghz radio and 2 receivers for about $50 total and be good to go. I've...

Hydro, any reason you run nicad packs? You can get much better performance from a life, or even a lipo. I run a lipo in my thunderboat with a Savox 1210SG, and compared to that 9156, I get way more...

FYI, you definitely don't have to use Futaba servos just because you have a Futaba radio and receiver. There are many great options for servos out there (I typically use Savox), and limiting yourself...
