Neat vid Martin, see that the throttle stays on longer now, more confidence in the machine ;) nice to see the family along with you  O0 Somehow I can't persuade mine to drive the 60km to the lake with me :(  Mind you I wouldn't want to sit in the middle of an industrial harbour, oil tanks, scrap metal merchants, glass recyclers etc are not the most inspiring background for a walk whilst dad/hubby plays ::)

Thanks for sharing that video Ian i love the sound of that pipe is that one of Daves or Jeroens your using?.Wish i could afford one its def quieter than the one im using with the external silencer  :o.Yes im def confident in her now ,ive had her running in all water conditions so i know shes not going to do anything too unexpected barring hitting something or driver error  :).mind you at those speeds it doesnt take much to make a boat a plane  {-).I guess where i run im lucky theres a beach and a long promenade so we usually take a stroll before or after dad has played with the boats,cant beat a day with the familly and playing a bit with the boats too what more could a man ask for.

it was shot on a widescreen cam and unfortunately photobucket compresses it into a 4:3 ratio so it looks slower than it really is

its a kyosho wave master running a graupner 500 race motor on a 7.2V  battery

the pond is in Ellenbrook called woodlake lake we run as a good group of friends on the 3rd saturday of every month feel free to come down but we are not allowed to run gas or nitro on the lake due to council regulations we dont have any races as there are not enough of us down there but we have a blast with all sorts of boats from scale, yachts, a couple of fast electrics, one submarine and the odd rc Duck.

Pm or e-mail me if you are interested

Hey mate im under the impression your in Australia? im in the UK, reason i asked if that pond was in perth is because a mate of mine is over there and he runs at a lake very similar.Thanks for the offer though  :-)).

Hi Mart
It's got a moded Zen 26 in it.  There is in fact 1 blond ! Gay chap Tarquine, & a dark haired lass.  So you are not seeing things at all. Trouble is there not very good at driving the boat. So I'm looking for a new crew for next year.
Cheers

sounded like it was a bit rich, you could hear od times when it leaned out a bit and came on song, was it new and running in .?

it should go well , was that the boat in one of the mags recently?

Thing with those proboat the motors dont seem to run that well or at least not consistantly,a mate of mine has one for his lad and it gave him nothing but problems,hes ended up moving onto petrol motors and bigger boats,i think he plans to make the shockwave electric now though which sounds like a good option as the hull isnt too bad although it feels a bit thin.Ive just aquired a small apache type hull very similar to the shockwave but its glass not sure if the shockwave is abs or glass ?.

Hi everyone,
I'm from Portugal and i love this hobby, particularly the FE.

I just would like to share some videos with you.

Small meeting: Me and two friends went to a lake to try our boats. The rigger and the wood Catamaran are not mine. My CAT is a modified PX-16. I ruined my esc this day >>:-(

Hi Brod
Nice stable boat and very quick  :-))
I thought it was the water outlet - but that boat is CRYING  <:( <:(
It NEEDS to race .... to run around with similar boats .....  to ENJOY itself  O0 O0
Take it racing - you know it will be happier  :-)) {-) {-)

Don't suppose you had a video camera available?  We'd much rather laugh commiserate you on hitting the buoy.  {-) {-)

Woulkdn't care but on this occasion I did not hit a buoy, the throttle got stuck at about 1/4 open when brining it in, hit the wooden jetty at about 30MPH, figured it was better than aiming at my friend who was waiting to catch it!

Maybe should have tried to stop the motor a bit further out and I would have known earlier. Hey ho. It'll fix. Adds character.

I wish I had taken my video cam with me this afternoon.
Andy gave his sub a run out. All was going fine till it SUNK {-) {-)
Andy rushed home to get his waders. Guess what. The Sub came back up while he was away. I did the best thing i could I got it back to shore and put it in the boat house.
Andy then came back put on the waders and went in {-) He was not happy to when he could not find the sub. Well after a bit i told him where it was  {-) {-)

Hi Bill
I think Andy's got the wrong idea - subs are supposed to sink .....  %) {-) {-) {-) {-)
Hope you waited until his fingers had turned blue before you told him  {-) {-)  At least you waited until he came back  :-)) {-) {-)
