HI Abreese
       I have been building one of the Engal Gatos for the last few weeks, have had problems with the seals on the propshafts and the seal on the gear box which works the front hydroplanes to make them fold up and down. If you look at the seals on the plans on how to build them it shows using PVC tube to seal on to the inner part of the shaft, but what happens is when the pistons come in you compress the air inside the water tight compartment so the air leaks slowly out of the prop shafts so i have built all new seals and prop shafts and  all so changed seals for folding hydroplane gear box but i suppose it depends on if you are happy with the kit as standard. But as time goes on i shall probably be doing more modes on it but may be i'm just having bad look.Hope it helps
