Title: Waverider Apache 58 videos
Post by: martno1fan on August 12, 2010, 03:47:13 PM
Hi guys,
Heres the first run from this morning no adjustments just threw her in to see how she handles.Runs stable and predictable,no trim tabs no fins either  :}.Not a bad first run really especially in these conditions ,didnt run her flat out on this run as i was just getting used to it again after an 8 month layoff but i was very happy with how she handles  :D.Modded zen 90 degree header,2" band ali pipe ,6717/3 prop,some cavitation on takeoff but once she bites she accelerates beautifully and very smooth too even in the turns without fins.Might install some fins later but i wont be bothering with any tabs,just not needed in my opinion.Ill be trying the 7015/3 prop also once ive got the motor dialed in with the new 929 carb.

Hi Mart,

The black hull that you have for sale on Ebay at the moment looks magnificent. Finger keeps hovering over the Buy it Now button but the wife threatens to break it
