Hi I built one of those I used a 7.2 battery but be careful of the fins at the back because it's easy to break them and make sure you get the tubes right that you feed the rods through to steer it Cheers John V

Started work on it today. The hull needs a lot of cutting and work on the joins and I have ordered servors, speed controller and all the rest. I also ordered a book which I hope will have some good detailed pictures in it.

Hi hi john. The hull kit what there is of it is very poor. I had to recut most of it. The gel coat was missing in a number places and the joins did not match up. The divers are the best parts.
