Well I finally got the rigger to run flat out at Llanberis last weekend. Wow !!!! Had a few probs with the HT coil mounting bracket but once that was overcome Tye rapes to the rescue. It went to clappers. There is now some pics and a video on the Llanberis tread.

Hi
I think it was doing the 60mph or there abouts. It was a wee bit choppy it may have got a little more speed if it he water was flat.. Still I'm very happy with the speed just got to short out the HT bracket and it will be ready for a Slow run round here at Stevenage.

Hi Martin
Here is the youtube link. It was taken a bit to far away, but having all that water to play on was just brill. I don't care if it ain't the fastest Hydro it scares the S**t out of me. I think I have found out just how fast I want my models to go!!! Anyway enjoy

Thanks to Ghost who seems to be the only one who got any video of my 3 runs.
Your boat runs well.

Cheers Bill she seems to run ok but def not reving out like she should,hard to say what speed she was doing from that vid but id say somewhere arround 45-50 mph.You wont know till you get a gps in there but im sure the boat can run much faster for you.Good luck with it im glad you had fun thats what its all about.
