That looks great!


I've finally got the motor and speed controller set up right in mine now. It's so satisfying to sail it. It runs like a dream.


I'll have to get some pictures of the current setup. I've also got some videos to upload to my youtube channel that I'll link to along with it so you can all see how it goes.

  Browsing through the November 1967 Model Boats, I thought you might like to know that the Sea Hornet kit cost 1/18/8d.

  Or maybe not...

Yeah? That's cool, I don't think I've seen an original advert for the Hornet.

Hi Hornet
I finished my Sea Hornet with 3S 2650mah battery, motor B28-57-15L 1900kv 750 watts, 45Amp ESC and a brass 32mm x 1.4 pitch prop.
Our camera boat pulls 31 mph and I passed it on 3/4 throttle, so I reckon she pull about 40 mph.
The balance point is 10 inches from the stern and in a bit of chop at half throttle runs very nice.
