There is some good info in the links above, for another hull option check out Aquacraft's VS1. It's a great running hull, I have one running nitro but there are a lot of FE conversions.

Hi all
Thanks so much for your help, the bullet drive looks interesting and thinks me may get one of these as a good starting point.
Me thinks I have a heap of learning, hulls, motors, esc, props and of course a good hull.  Still like the Graupner F1 and will find any suggestsions on motors and props most useful still learning so much from the web.
Thanks again
