Does she have any other ballast?
She must be an old build as the gold ESC's havent been made for some time.

I canrt find any . So im thinking the motors an stuff inside is keeping the
Model up right . But ive noticed when opening up full throttle the boat rocks alot . So im thinking itz too high
In the water . I had add 45grams on one side to stop it leaning to the left
I mean she goes really fast .which is strange for a warship .
With the old speed controllers . Ive found that when i open the trottle up 2clicks itss
Going really fast . Could this be the old speed contollers ???

The 2 x LiPo batteries should be a bit light for her.
Might be worth cheching the waterline up to the top of the boot topping.
For this type and size of hulls I usually have enough draught to fit some sheet lead along the keel inside the hull.

   Hi shadowfleet.
                             RE: Ive found that when i open the trottle up 2clicks its Going really fast . Could this be the old speed   
                             contollers ??? . I mean she goes really fast .which is strange for a warship.
                            Erm Hello!!!   its a WWII german destroyer you have  its meant to go fast like 36Knots.  The battle ships are the
                            ones that  go a bit slower you have obviously not see a destroyer cut through the water.  A destroyer will heel over
                            when turning at speed.
                             
                                With a narrow beam hull like this they are prone to a bit of rock n roll.  The general consensus is keep the top
                                 weight down, if used a lead acid battery should be placed flat.  You could always try fitting some rolled lead as
                                   internal bilge keels.
                           
                             Its a Deans kit you have, contact  them for parts  There may  be some brass etch fittings for it now.
 
 
 click on these links it will keep you busy for quite some time.
