    Well I had a battery boat when I was younger but they were nowhere near as good as the Nitro (Not in my eyes), so with the 5 and a bit weeks I haven't been smoking I though what the hell.....

    But Nitro boats in most enthusiast's eyes arent as good as these:

          So it came and had been taken apart (To be rebuilt by previous owner??). So I set about checking EVERYTHING as I built it back up.

            My problem with boats is like what happened in that video, what do you do when it lands upside down in a lake or breakdowns. **** swimming to get it.

              Well I had this a couple of weeks ago with a battery one got it stuck but luckily a passing barge fished it out lol. But this type seal very well so shouldn't leak water in or if it does it will be a table spoons worth. (Hopefully)

                    My next issue was the red connector tops there no good for the boats set up and nowadays you don't get different types with the radio gear.

                      However I found in the attic some spares that you used to get. (Think they came with my nitro plane).

                      So lucky me borrowed them:

                      So when I move the thumb stick left I have left and right I have right :-). Will tidy up the white servo arm later.

                            I have a few RC models myself but all need repairs.
                            The gearboxes and differentials aren't a fan of my driving.

                              JT the lipo are brilliant and easily tunable to some good top speeds, just what happens to the batteries if things go wrong that put me off lol.

                              Tam you have a brilliant collection there do you use plastic drive gears or brass?, My old man has a beetle that use's the strimmer / hedge cutter engine.

                              I will post some pictures up of that as it's fun to use even though it only does 25mph it's how fast it gets there lol.
