we have put xr2s on a phantom 16 and a ring 16 good fun but over powered and much better on a 18\19 unless you live on a lake ! (we ran a tandem phantom 16\xr2 in the 3 hour race on windermere once, top end was 77ish but all over the place most of the time, we would have been quicker in my 18 but not as entertaining for the spectators)
