when testing the boat on the bench the square drive on the flexi shaft became detached from the square housing on the propeller stub shaft it took some 4.5 hours to strip everything out and set up properly. the boat is supplied with a different location of the motor to what is shown on the webb site it is now sited directly beneath the centre deck.
on testing in the water the propeller was cavitating and the boat ran slow whilst the engine was reving its head off,even gradually building the motor up did not cure this problem i have overcome this by using a propeller of 40mm dia with a much courser pitch.to get it running good i recommend the following
i use 2 5000mha 3 cell lipos linked to double the capacity NOT THE VOLTAGE these are sited either side of the motor velcrode to the hull keeping them as low as possible
to combat the torque turn of the motor i have put 400 grams of counter balance on the port side of the boat adjacent to the battery tray
i have used the battery tay to mount my speed controller
if the above is worked to the boat sails fine at a good speed and lasts for around 30 mins on the two batteriesif u buy this,, u really need to buy turn fin..expecially for beginner. this boat need more grip at cornering.. for 3s mybe ok. but for 4s and above is no stable without turn fin.. or u can just adjust rudder sensitivity at your tx. overall its all good and nice finish.. the steel gate at the front need to be glued. the wood floor also. after installing turn fins, this boat is ready for btter performance,4s or 6s no problem. ty hobbykingRuns great , fast handles well , mine had a bad shaft ..but replaced it with a new shaft all good . Very heavy on batteries though :)
Du de cet achat, le flexible s'est cass en 2 au bout de 3 tours, le support moteur et le tube sont colls avec juste une feuille de fibre il s'est dcoll rapidement, le montage est fait la va vite. J'ai d tout dmonter et rachet du matriel fiable. le bateau m'a cout le double, ce n'est pas un achat rentable.Hobbyking needs to ammend its description of this boat .advertised as 1000mm long and 300mm wide..this is way out its actually 930mm long and 225mm wide..Initialy was going to return it as the size difference made for some disappointment on opening box...however I deceided to keep based on some youtube clips i had seen..boat is superbly finished and the glass hull among the best I've seen..running is also impressive...So hobbyking you have a great boat here..Please describe correcly and you have a winnerVery nice scale boat, didnt expect it to be this nice for the price.Si vous achetez ce modle il vous faut imprativement tout renforcer, recoller le support morteur, recoller l'arbre et le support d'accu et de servo et surtout changer le flexible. Au premier run le flexible s'est cass en 2 et le support moteur s'est dcoll en mettant les gaz moiti.
le montage d'origine est peu soign et fait la va vite. quelques points de colle par ci par l ne suffisent pas tenir correctement du matriel qui tourne un haut rendement.[url=https://flic.kr/p/sfK3LZ][img]https://c4.staticflickr.com/8/7657/17232106065_2cf9aa3df3_n.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/sfK3LZ].[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/jamestownboats/]James Ray[/url], auf FlickrI ordered this modell from the EU warehouse, and the transportation time was 5 days.

Beautiful and huge boat. :)
There are few little negative points but overall, it's amazing.
Looks very good
The inner installation is looks also very stable, and precise.
The magnetic attached cover is stable, like the big one.
Easy to mount the rudder, and the prop too.
Little spilled glue on the read deck
The handrail needs a little glue to make it tight.
There is not enough space for the cooling tube, so I will use a 90 degrees outflow connection.
The radar holder is not straight
The introdution video says there is real painting on it, but as I saw, it's a vinyl with a lacker on it. But its okay.... My boat had a little stcratch in the front blue surface.. :(
But I am fully sure it was worth it. :)
I am satisfied.
Never put it in to the water without closing the cooler tube system.... :DThis boat has an excellent finish and comes together really well. Tried it on the lake recently. On initial power application the prop cavitates significantly but as the speed of the boat increased the cavitation stopped and that is when it really started to 'fly'. Handles really well. Watch the tight turns at speed. Managed to roll it during one and the two hatches blew off. The top hatch floats but the rear hatch didn't. Glue some floatation foam on the under side of the hatch to prevent losing it.
