hi thelongbuild
the pictures were taken at my local club lake in saltwell park gateshead
i bought the springer from a local member last year and i think he bought it from eBay but could not remember the name of the person
i use it as a rescue boat and find it sails well apart from it likes to dip its bow under when on full power

If possible, try moving your battery back a bit...

thanks guys
after reading through most of the springer section on here the nose diving seems to be the norm with these little boats.
thanks martin i will try moving the battery back next time im at the club lake.
i have to admit they are a fun little boat and no two seem to be the same
