I ordered my black one off Gav yesterday. I'm going down the origional strimmer motor route with mine, 2 stroke mix, intergated fuel tank, loads of torque, makes for an easier build, and no special nitro fuel needed.

The idea is for it to be a real offshore racer. I'm planning to launch it off the back of my propper boat from around 2 miles out.
That way if it all goes t*ts up my boat will have the legs to keep up with it.

I've got the prop and propshaft already and a 2channal Futaba Attac radio control system in my garage waiting for a 'new build'.

The areas for concerne are exhaust and cooling. Not quite sure about solutions yet but working on it 'um' 'um' (any ideas guys?)

I hope you meen the model boats cause 'Sali' ain't got the legs to catch up with your Transilvanian monster.

What about the end of the fishermans pontoon at Littlehampton for a drag race up the Arun to the road bridge and back?

IMHO electric is gonna be a pain in the crotch, with a sparky motor, fill her up, pull start, and off ya go, no need to carry anything with you apart from more fuel!!
