Very Interesting & Creative Build.

What's the final build cost so far? And what are you predictions in mass production? You have obviously built this to 'revamp' the original club 500 in a more 'racing style' which needless to say you did a bang up job.  :-))
But to be competitive on the market, cost will be an issues, im sure many members on the forum now have 'itchy' fingers to get hold of one of these new 500 racers (so theres a market there for you)  but cost will be a down side if its to expensive, as its been previously stated the club 500 is a winner for not only its design but its simplicity to build, its cost as well as all the parts included in the kit.
For a little fast electric do you feel that maybe this may be worth competing against such as the 'micro/mini v' rather then the club 500, as you have created a smaller fast electric rather then an all ages 'fun boat'?

Thanks roadrunner
So far this build has cost me around 120 with out going back through everything and obviously the cost of the in fibreglass version has yet to be figured out,im still awaiting emails from supplier,but also gonna ring some1 else when he gets back in the country.
Any age will be able to run this boat,both of my lads (13yr and 6yr) will have ago with this 1.
As for competing with what else is out there,dont really take much notice as iv always designed and built my own(apart from the cat my missus got me)so not sure how it will do,i would like to see how much interest is actually out there for somthing like this + the others im looking doing but who knows whats ahead i'll just keep doing what im doing and go from there.

Thanks for the reply in such short time, very interesting to hear its current cost of 120 thats not bad for what you have produced with a brushless setup. I will keep watch and see what come of this project, you may have just created a new series of 'cat500's' making it a class of its own  :-))

I presume that once you finally get the boat to the glass fibre stage Daz, you will be making alternative  hull colours available, so not all the boats are same base shade!
Looks good  after Paint job !

Have you decided on what clips to hold the canopy on with yet?
Would it be possible to say,have a "hook in lip" on forward edge, then some form of simple clip at the stern end, rather than have to rely on  a roll of sticky tape every time.................

the hulls will be available in different colour tops and white bottom or even choose a different colour bottom,also will be available in matt white finish if they want to paint them and give it there own touch,im in talks with a glasser now,will keep you posted on how we get on.

For the tape will do,iv never had any issues using it,but will look at an alternative at a later date if needs be for now just wanna get it wet and tested :-))
