yep building a rigger is next on my list but Im gonna use an os .18 It was going into my vegas but a rigger would benifit more from it I think. When I build I am eather going with a firefighter or a bantam hull, what hull is yours?

LOL, ok! Should be a killer little boat, Thats why I want the .12 kit there is just something about making something that small go real fast that has a ring to it i would love to get one of those tiny boats to hit 50 60 mph Plus if ron is right a .18 should be able to run in the class with the .21 cats and riggers at a race......Only problem I could see running with bigger boats is if you did get hit or hit someone a little rigger would be toast!

Yellow and black is sweet colors, Also Black and Red. I don't think you should leave it just bare wood. You should at least put some polyurathane on it or somthing.

There is a way to do it if you want the rudder on the right side. Get a control horn for a 1/2 A plane and mount it as close as you can to the hinge. This will allow you to get it lower also so that you can run the linkage through the transom. Du-Bro makes the horn, it's their part number 107.
