Thanks Toes nice pic....any silverware from SF event? ::) Norry; Toes gave you the answers, MacPuffer picture at rest shows how she is rigged, slightly tail heavy, same with Maid but the stern does seem to rise a bit under power but no submarining tendencies. Power is 450 standard "can" from Maplins, not a bad deal at about £7 as it comes fully suppressed ( three thingies already soldered on) and a bent metal mount. They also carry a line of sealed LA batteries ( AM 6-4.5) 6v, 4.5Ah which are very suitable. I run a 35mm Graupner 3 blade plastic prop and on "Maid" a 40mm cut down to 35 seems to work OK. I also have the motors water cooled as they seemed very hot to me even with some cooling holes ( inside the cludge and wheelhouse). Glad the photo discs were OK, sorry about other stuff on them. Before you ask I`m NOT planning a Springer floating restuarant !!!!!
