Take it this is the one, sorry about poor quality photo %)

I fitted a 6v 4 amphour lead acid battery + an MFA Rocket 500 motor, electronize speed controller. :-))

I found it to be good quality, ignore the vague instructions after half completing her & use box illustration. She will require a fair bit of lead ballast too O0

enjoy ok2
