Revolt 30

I see allot of planes & trucks / cars in this thread but, I just got into Fast Electric Boats and it's a scream. The boat I have is an Aquacraft Revolt 30. It is a ready to run type and was fully assembled. Out of the box it hit 35 mph. This may not sound fast but, with a few adjustments and prop swaps I've gotten it to 47.8 mph.







The picture above shows the Velocity RC GPS showing 46.6mph. I did hit 47.8 but, the picture wasn't in focus.

Boats are cool, even had a small one myself; Pro Boat Mini-V. Just got bored with it. Should I decided to get back into, I would go with a bigger boat. Probably from these guys - http://www.aeromarinerc.com/index.ph...hk=1&Itemid=53 - who are about 30 minutes away.

Got a few new toys.

A guy I know dropped by the shop and asked me if I wanted to look at some planes he wanted to sell, sure I said. Being a small electric flyer I was really not that interested, all too big for me. Then he said $200.00 for the whole lot, ok what the hell.

At first I was going to peddle the big Edge, but decided to build it. If it never fly's It does look pretty good hanging from the shop wall.

Well I would say that stuff is certainly worth more than $200!

I've seen one of those Mr Mulligans fineshed out.
It's huge, and gorgeous!
Speaking of old school kits, I'm still on the search for the illusive .60 sized Midwest Super Hots, in the event anyone has one sitting on the shelf, unopened/unbuilt...

that's my spare kit. the original one was without the pre-made cowl so i bought a partial kit with it. the completed kit is in the rafters in the barn. it weighs 20lbs wet, couldn't get out of it's way if it had too. about a 35mph top speed. very relaxing...


aint seen a hots in years. grab the plans & scratch it. that's where all the good kits have gone anyways :\

Actually, I do have a set of plans, from the RCM plans service.
I was just hoping to find a kit, sometime, to add to the collection.
I want a Morrissey Bravo, but all the kits are going for a premium.

Has anyone tried RC sailing? Seems like a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon, though I fear I may get a bit bored of it after a while ...
