ok while i have been up here in Hervey Bay i have been bitten by another form of the rc bug, so i decided to get something different. I got a scale version of the class 1 racing boat King of Shaves, picked it up yesterday and after a quick soldering session to change batt plugs i was off to the dam for its maiden voyage, holy crap this thing goes it said on the box 40mph and i reckon its every bit of it, the only problem i had was one prop was running deeper than the other so one motor got real hot and the other was stone cold but with a quick adjustment last night i am ready to hit the dam again today. i nearly flipped it a couple of times but only cause its blowing like 40knts up here and the wind got under it, its like a scale cyclone lol.

fark yer Troy goes great, its been awhile scince i have driven anything this fast lol, been crawling for a few years now, i have to get used to the range again, its a bit different trying to judge were the markers on the dam are, and having no brakes was freaky coming into the bank lol.

Had its first flip over today it was floating upside down for about 20mins while i walked to the other side of the dam with the fishing rod to get it back lol (need a canoe). only small amount of water got into it through the antena hole so i have sealed that up with a piece of fuel line.
