its just a cheap 6v distalate unit i think it was ?14 inc a bottle of distilate i was inpressed by how much smoke it makes
for the drive i have used a 12V rs550 hs moter out of a battery drill runnig on 6v with a 45mm 3 blade prop she seems to run well and only a little over scale speed at full speed the bow wave and line of the water look very good with out going too fast
she has a running weight of 12 and half pounds how could i get simaler proformance with a 6v motor and gearbox
the front gun turns 360 using a servo moter with the stops and senser removed is there an easyer way to do it

On past experience without radio gear I would guess about ?200 on eBay, ?250 in Marine Modelling and ?300 in Model Boats.
