Club 500's are a class of club racer
so every boat must conform to strict
build rules.
Having said that, I would have thought
a brushless club boat would have
surfaced by now.

Having gained experience the hard way everything is much easier this time as it's simply the technique.  :-))

Do the rules allow for a better prop shaft?

Had a good blast this morning and the 5000mah batteries have checked out ok so ordered another 2  :-))
That equates to 20.75p each delivered. I also expect the performance will improve after a few charge cycles.

I got to the pond before 8 am today and had a right good long session with both boats and 4 batteries. I learnt a lesson though as My B boat was dead in the water due to my transmitter battery going flat  {-)
Meanwhile I feel the need to try everything and just ordered a Joysway Dragonforce  8)

I'm on holiday near Brid
Yesterday I tried it in a beach pool left by the tide.
Today I put it in the sea and it performs superb. No fear of capsize and goes airborne over the breakers. Great fun and I may try a LiPo for non competition on solo days

Of interest
Note the weights, the Chinese import/eBay is clearly a sheep in tiger skin

I wonder how near a 5300mah these are & how long they will last. Always good to have a pioneer to inform the rest of us.
