Ive sold the both the hull in this thread and the catamaran hull and decided to build another which ive now finished. Took it out twice but then on the 3rd occasion for some unknown reason my boat just burst into life. I couldnt work it out at first, then it dawned on me that the speed controller ive been using has was stuck in recovery mode and faulty. I thought was something was a bit off because the lipos would come in dangerously low, but it hadnt crossed my mind it was because low voltage cut off was stuck on. Ive replaced the esc and sure enough the boat runs as it was intended
Now the other hulls are gone ill never know what they could have been cable of.  >>:-( >>:-(

yes on the hull i have now (not shown in this thread) it was too strong in fact it produced  so much thrust it flipped the boat over backwards. I replaced the motor with something a little tamer and sold the leopard now for my new found interest in planes.  %)

Be careful Mike.
You can rescue a boat that flips, but flying things
need bin bags for transporting home from the site.

You know beleive it or not im more anxious about my boats flipping than my planes crashing. Accidents happen but the difference is between a plane and a boat is that when things do go TU at least with a plane you can walk over and take something home, boats on the other hand i have walked home with nothing but the TX.  >>:-(
