wow thats impressive  :-)). I been waiting to see the 500 go since you first posted the idea, I really do think there could be a lot of interest in this as a limited racing class.
Well I want 1 anyway !!!
I think its to quick for a beginners class, & its lack of self righting will undoubtedly put some off, however i think as a 1 make design class, there's a real chance it will take off.
Congratulations on making such an impressive boat, I cant imagine theres a faster boat / out there.
By the way, what sort of run time are you getting?
cheers Glenn

Hiya glenn
Thanks once done some testing it should be a real little goer LOL.
See how it goes and what happens in the near future.
As for run time not 100% sure as of yet ,will do some more runs and post a vid or 2 as i hopefully make progress in the right direction.
Will keep you posted but all i can say is that the batts,motor and esc were barely warm.
