I haven't installed my outboard yet, it will most likely be the EP1 I choose. Does your Profisherman glitch? Mine did!
what motor did you put on it? have you ran the robbe yet? thanks bill

Default Robbe Prinzess with Aquacraft EP1

Just started working on this, haven't tested on the water yet. I just got the outboard mounted, put in a wood sub-floor, made a box to secure the steering servo to the floor, next I have to make a radio and battery tray to secure the rest of the electronics. I think the EP1 looks much more scale than the Robbe outboard. This hull is a replica of a Glastron GT150.

Hi Bill,

That is a K&B 3.5 (.21) nitro outboard converted for electric motor use. At present, I am using a Mega Midi-6 with a 3-turn armature on 12 cells. It is actually mounted on the Speed Vee right now.

Hi Bill I didn't really do a lot of cutting, I cut out the back of the leg and filled the resulting gap with some two part epoxy putty, and used a longer self tapping screwat the bottom. My biggest change was to scratch build a new cover from styrene as tight around the motor as I could, it still attaches to the stock mounting location. Its not scale but it looks better than stock IMO. Thanks Jay
