Hi John
         HS93's idea sound good to me to O0, however are you now happy with the performance? :) The pics look good. 8) Have you painted her grey or green? 99.9% of the later boats were green with red oxide below the waterline. I only metion this because if you have painted her grey she would have a black botom as you have done. Happy sailing and if you want crew check out my site.  ;)
Regards Rob.

Hi Rob
Shes  matt grey with black waterline (see pic above) She has foward/aft gunners + helmsman & some lazy person sat by the aft liferaft !
She goes well  enough  (for now !) well above scale speed.
p.s manta now brushless on 14 cells (nearly s*it myself on on first run)
Cheers
John

Hi John
          Thats good news with the elco :). Regarding the colour  certain shades of green under certain light look close to grey. From where I'm looking it's on the border grey/green. :-\ Next mission get the elco to go like the manta {-)

Regards Rob.

Missed a word out in last post (it was early !)so here it is TIME.
Anyway have been looking at lots of websites regarding Elco ect.
Had no idea there was so much interesting history about them.
Studying the pics i think shes almost spot on.
Will keep her for a while (untill i get bored) and sale her on to a good home due to lack of space.
