Sorry it took me so long to respond.That things just a non proportional pager motor boat and so boring I boxed it up and forgot I had it lol.

Anyway I'm building a small sailboat off a car tx so my electronics options have always been challenging.Since I know I'll be controlling my Jib off my 3rd channel I got the idea of controlling my main sail off chanel 3 also to free up my throttle channel for a small outboard.

I'm still waiting for my ft007's motor so I electrical taped that little boats outboard between my ft007's rudder supports to see how it handles a larger hull and esc.The smallest esc I have is 10 amp so I used a 6 volt josway battery instead of 7.4.Im honestly suprised, running off of a real esc my ft007 hull is faster then the 4" boat the motor came with.It will never get the ft007 hull to plane but it's fast enough to make a wake.It should be perfect to bring my sailboat to shore if wind dies.I did donuts in my bathtub for 20 minutes then stopped.The motor was cold since it's submerged/water cooled.It be a better trolling motor for most boats though.

shes all decked out.
I may change the bow deck to a round shape.
shes 31.5x9.5 on the deck.
lots of sanding to look forward too.
this isn't the ideal hull for this build.

cabin will be about 1.5 inches longer when done.

I like free projects,i currently don't have a use for them at the moment.
those are more of a racer/fast hull.
plus shipping a partically built skeleton wouldn't fare well during shipping.

thanx for the offer though.ill keep them in mind.
ill show them to my brother.
