Small electric hydroplane/outrigger
« on: July 10, 2016, 09:40:43 PM »

hello,
I've been searching for a small hydroplane/outrigger for a while but I can't find any in the uk,
Does anybody know where I can buy a hydroplane that takes a 2 or 3 cell lipo,


I'm looking for the hull and sponson type.


Can anybody point me in the right direction?


Thank guys

It's from the US but Jae Mini Sprint is the best deal going for a 2-3s rigger. It's the same company that makes the current world record .21 nitro rigger. I have built a couple of their kits and they are first rate with color illustrated step by step instructions.

Not sure if my link is working to zippkits.com

Thanks guys, that looks like just the job.
The price seems good too, I take it you have had them shipped over, how long did it take?


Appreciate the help guys

Not the fastest 3s hydro out there but great value for money.

Right guys, just a little update.
After looking around at all the suggestions, Including a email to zip kits about a pre made model which they do not do, I was going to just bite the bullet an buy one.
However, I have just received in post today a Etti demon mk11 along with a motor, esc, servo and all hardware which came up at a bargain price I couldn't say no to,

I will be fitting a receiver and getting it on the water soon,
i will update again once I've had it on the water.
