Looks good Mike, sure you will do a nice job on it. What brushless motor are you going to use ?
Keep me updated on the build. Any idea what it should weigh when done.
Got my .12 down to 2lbs. 3oz. less fuel, made a few minor changes. Would like to some day try thinner (on the bottom) front sponsons, just to see the results, and still have the OS engine to put in. Boats running great just think the OS engine will pull it better in choppy water, and maybe will pull the p215 prop nicely too.

The boot on my carb is a car exhaust deflector, I use it because my boat is slower that the .21 so when I am passed I don't get prop washout (it happened 1x when being passed and since the boot was added it hasn't happened since).

feigao 7s and hydra 120 is the motor and controler im going with, as for weight, as light as i can! I have used less epoxy and more CA ,the outside is only getting one coat of epoxt to seal it and back sanded will paint this one instead of going natural, so I hope to save a bit there to.....Mabey lipos instead of sub C's but not 100% sure yet...

Sounds like a winner Mike. Should be a nice set-up.

progress on my little critter, front sponsons mounted,rear sponsons built and mounted the hull is sealed with finnishing epoxy inside and out, outside sanded down for paint... Using the crumbgrabber hardware from fullers on this one its very light very adjustable and its an all in one unit, would work great on any .12 size rigger hull..

hull is painted now.matalic green/black, base clear... Soon to have hardware installed Just letting the paint set a day or two.. Still debating weather to use CF for the hatch covers or clear lexan, Will there be and radio problems if I do use CF using a deans slimline it has a rubber gromet around the mount so it wouldnt be touching the CF?
