RE: putting the final touches on my Easy Vee

2.4 ghz wavelength is so small it gets absorbed by water, especially the roostertail from our gas boats.

RE: This shall be my build thread.

Are you paying someone to build it?

RE: Looking for a RTR MONO

RE: ***Introducing the R/C Boat World Championship Series***

I think it's cool Carlos take the time and effort into developing a race series like this. If it went on to the final being the best of the best or a qualifing final it would be even better. Most...

RE: High Lift or Not?

Never seen a gas boat run a 60mm prop. 65 yes 60 no, (unless it is subsurface)
