Title: Precedent Perkasa test run.
Post by: biggus ditchus on September 19, 2011, 09:54:50 PM
Picked this up from JB and what a great guy to deal with, There was some debate that it was the Brave Borderer but apart from the P1011 on it I cant see anyother similarity so I presume its a Perkasa (If some one could confirm this).    Also whilst fitting all the electronics I found the name Stan Cheetham written on the inside of wheelhouse along with the year 1994, andhad to wonder if Stan was a member on here, would be nice to get some input from who I presume is the guy who did a great job of building it in the first place.

Anyhow I managed to get it on the water this past Sunday now running a 900kv outrunner motor, 80a esc and 3s lipo (did try 4s but it was a bit mad) and thought I would share the video footage.

A mate of mine picked a Huntsman 31 off JB at the same time and we hope to have that running wednesday.
