rcboateric, prop looks realy nice. [8D]

glennb2006, as the others have said, it has a silencer on it, so I hope the club accepts the noise it makes.
Otherwise, there is a lake in the middle of a freeway intersection nearby, where we also sail......no sound problems there

But if it is way too noisy, I would like to try a MHZ cooper reso pipe.......but it will probably kill performance.... i dont know.
I have not heard the engine run yet, as I can not crank the engine with my puney electric starter I have at the moment [:'(]

Hope it is not too loud, the stinger mufflers are still too loud for most use over here, still, not too much of a problem as there are loads of options for quiet pipes.

Looking good.

Try this gas engine starter, it can crank a gas engine up to 35CC.

The Model 4 will crank it over with no problem as long as you have 24 volts. I'm just using 2 gel-cell batteries for mine.
Nice boat BTW, those Korean's are coming out with some really nice stuff!

Default Vx hydroplane

How did you get on with it. I've had mine since 2012 running a k30. My problem is when pushing anything bigger than a octura 1667 she leaps out of the water and submarines. I'm wondering if it's too much motor? Maybe a 26cc instead. What are you running?

Stil have this awesome boat. I have not run it much. I would say that the engine propably still isn`t broken in yet.
But the times I have run it, it was awesome. But, the last time I was out, it sank to the bottom of our pond...so I had to go for a swim.

Im running the RCMK R254 that came with the boat.....guess its a 25.4cc engine ?
