I looked at the speed boats and thought bugger it I can even use this thing in the backyard on a frosty morning. My first R/C boat was called the Platypus (late 80s) I just loved the thing. My dad got one a few weeks ago at a lawn sale for $5.

I think I might cam it up and hang a 50cal off her. Has anyone got a spare 50 they don't want?   8)    ;)

So I got the boat today. No instructions as per usual for Hobby King. Quality is so so, but what you get for your moneys good. It's big which is good, I'd say 1/10 scale. Should be alot of fun, I can't wait to give her a run. I just have to find a piece of water near my place.  :o  ???Maybe I should have done that first. Off to the local hobby shop tomorrow from some camo paint.   8)

So after her second overhaul, I finally got to take her out and I love it!! Great fun. Only thing is apart from some improvements made in the overhaul. I'm going to get a bigger battery than the one recommended by HK it does not run long enough

Cool stuff. Just ordered a whole lot of bodies, body parts  and odd bits and pieces for the big girl from The regimental S4. Great site and Nick was more than helpful in giving info and a lot of spares for a bargain. Was gas bagging to him and apparently he has a mountain in Antarctica name after him, after his numerous tours down there in his earlier years.
Could be the guy to have a yak to about getting a pilot for the beast, and bits, as he has a lot of goodies that aren't on his web page..
Always glad to help a fellow out in time of waiting.. LOL
