Fiberglass hull, is so bad it is unusable! It is so thin that you can lift the Servo wit its mount 1cm up/down -> exact steering impossible. The same for the hole boat, motor mount etc...
Worst thing, the hull is on the V sides not straight, that causes the boat to go under water at higher speed, I'm serious, the boat WILL go down and be completely under water!!!.. .received the vanquish put a 1900 edf motor in , twin 11.1 battries at 65 to 130 c 150 amp esc . wat a joke behaves more like a outa control submarine........ any suggestionsArrived in good condition with lots of extra packaging.
Will require extra glassing in the motor mount area as the hull flexes.Also the engine mount rails fitted by the manufacturer are missing the reinforcing.
Apart from that a nice large hull
Have one of these now and it runs well.
The prop was useless using a 2000kv motor on 4S the torque flattened the prop after 1st run. Now running a good quality prop (Beryllium Copper) so if you purchase one replace the prop 1st off.
A few bolts/screws were missing in the original shipment so had to go and get extras which was annoying. Lost one of the prop shaft (stinger kit) screws due to the original prop being so unbalanced it vibrated out, luckily I didnt lose anything else rest of the bolts were just loose.
After all of that it runs very nice, filled the nose with G2 foam makes it hard as concrete but still just as light.
Have to work out the trimming now as when it gets up to plane it wobbles a lot (prop warping I think) will try again once I get the missing bolts to attach the stinger kit securely.
If anyone knows what could be causing the wobbles at high speed if you could let me know that would be awesome.
If I get time I will post up a video of one of the runs.La lancha es buena en general, pero lleva mucho tiempo y trabajo para dejarla "de fundamento". En archivos se puede ver una guia que subi hace tiempo. Ya esta montada y terminada y se pueden ver las fotos en http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150989346675049.472479.746570048&type=3&l=bfef0f75c4
El casco es muy fino y viene con problema de "hollow up" casco con huecos que hace que se frene en el agua. Hay que ajustar toda la timoneria, y dems. Por el precio le doy un 4. un 2 por la cantidad de trabajo que lleva.great kit, i was it had instructions but with net help i am currently setting it upNot bad for the price. Everything was installed but loosely so just went over it..
Hull was pretty soft almost see through seems weak to me so I added some fiberglass and it's all good. Still waiting for first test but seems to float wellJust received the boat and started to install motor. I use a KD36-60-06L motor. HK recommend motor diameter 36 mm which is OK for the cooling jacket but the rear Aluminum Motor support has a diameter of 40 mm so it cannot clamp the motor. Very strange indeed. And the cooling jacket is made of silicon rubber. It has a multitude of parallell cooling channels connecteed with the in and outlet tubes. But I noticed that many channels were blocked at both the inlet and outlet ends. So I turned the jacket inside out and removed all the flashes that were blocking the channels. I think many of you must have poor cooling of the motor if you do not clean out the cooling jacket. The shaft had no grease at all which is very strange. I will continue my review once the boat is completed.El kit en si esta bastante completo. Tiene piezas que no son de tanta calidad pero suficiente para el precio que tiene no se puede pedir mas, el precio es invatible.. Los datos especificados son erroneos LA BANCADA ES PARA UN MOTOR DE 40MM DE DIAMETRO (NO 36MM). En cambio el cooler de goma que incluye si que es para un motor de 36mm, pero seguramente se pueda alargar hasta los 40mm. La bancada es exactamente la misma que la del modelo Ospreys. Si no quieren problemas no compren motores kb45 para este barco porque vienen con mas ancho entre tornillos que lo que la bancada soporta. La helice es de 49mm y tiene un eje de 3/16 pulgadas, perfecto para cambiarla por una octura. El acople entre el motor y el eje flexible es bastante robusto y seguramente se pueda mecanizar para albergar ejes de motor mayores (de 6mm). El strut viene un poco bajo, es conveniente recolocarlo. Recomiendo este barco para gente que disfrute haciendo modificaciones a los barcos, que tenga un tallercito y se entretenga mejorandolo poco a poco como yo. El tamao te impresionar, es gigante. Eso si, el barco tiene algunos defectillos que hobbyking debe tener en cuenta para futuros modelos!!! Por este precio JAMAS VERAS NADA PARECIDO!.
