Thank ya thank ya Joker... Ha, I'm still wondering if it will displace water right, Or display water wrong... The front end was very challenging to say the least. This is what I ended up with. I need to put a few more braces in vertically and then want to lay a few in horizontal to make sure when I skin that it don't pull off center beam from the tension. Lots of Sanding and smoothing but I think it will work........."Gulp".....

It will work bud,have a little faith! lol. Besides, if you hadn't mentioned the fact you were new to it, I would have thought by them pics alone, you had been doing it for years!.

Even if it is a little front heavy, your electrics/battery could even that out?.

Is it getting electric?...or one of them Glow engines?......thought for later I suppose, get it to float first lol.

Thank you Timmy2,Joker and jim. I would like to run a brushless inrunner with at least A 3s lipo, But to start with I think I will try some extra stuff I have just sitting. like a 550 brushed trax motor. Its heavy, But should get it up to speed if I go direct drive would'nt ya think. I do have some smaller brushed motors and esc that are very light and would run off some smaller 3s battery's. Also not sure what I will use for transmitter ????? is stick better then pistol's on boats? IF i use a stick, I could Set up a few more channels for the water trimming dude-dad on the back. Don't ya just love my fancy boat talk....Ha. Here is what I have to work with, Would appreciate advice on what may be a better combo. I'm sure lighter would be better, Right ?

Default Radio?

I would opt for the wheel radio. My dx3C has an aux ch that you would be able to control your du-dad with!


Oh, as for weight, you may end up with some ballast anyway, so motor and hardware choice might not be a big deal. If it is powered okay, the boat will sit. Bit lower in the water, but at speed, there might not be to much difference, and it may control a bit more smooth with a bit more weight?

Your all just great, ...."dman10" your a riot, Its still new, wait till I get bored or it sinks.... "heartless"...No clue really on dash of yet ? ? ? Too far to go still. "Joker" That probably is a real good Idea...ha........"Rvjim" I have a couple of Dx3 systems......That may be the way to go for sure, See if it floats first I guess.
