Default Dumas Short stuff DV10

Building a DV10 with an OS 11
The running gear Dumas sells looks like garbage. Would this be appropriate;

Is the .098 flex large enough for a nitro engine?
Thanks in advance

I wouldn't use a cable that small with nitro. I'd go with a .150 cable, just to be safe. The thinner cable is made for electric motors where the power is, for no better way to word it, smooth. A nitro engine pulses every time the fuel burns, making the power jerky.

I've had 2 of them over the years. .125" or the .150".
I've also built a small pile of .12 powered boats over the years.

Do you have any pics of your boat? I'm building a Dumas Ske Vee 10 and trying to figuire out how to stuff the servos, fuel tank and battery in the back of that little boat.
Thanks!

Don't try to put the tank in at the back. It needs to go either up front or along side of the engine. The radio compartment is what goes in the rear.
That said, if you plan on racing your boats, you will want to put the rudder on either side of the prop and set the tiller on the right side so the rudder is pulled to turn. This prevents the push rod from bending. If you are looking at just having a fun runner, you can also put the rudder directly behind the prop though, truth be told, that makes maintenance harder since you would have to pull the rudder every time you do maintenance on the drive shaft

Ahh, that's some good info, thanks! I plan on just a fun runner style of boat. I don't have any room next to the motor for a tank, I wish the forum would let me post some pics as a new member.

Yeah, that's kind of a stupid rule and thought so when I was a Moderator in here as people will just post BS to get their counts up.

Yes. I'm also limited to 5 posts in a 24 hour period. I came to the forum to get help with my boat, but have to jump through these odd hoops to be able to actually post some pics to get the help I need. I didn't come to the forum to make a bunch of random posts... just get help with my project.

As Ron knows, the 10 post requirement was to prevent a bunch of sales pitch posts that proliferated a few years back. Someone would open an account, put out several posts advertising a product across several threads in various sub-forums and then never be heard from again. The 10 post rule was to prevent that from happening. I know it's stupid but, at the time, it was the only way to prevent the site from being "spammed to death"
