Cool. Thanks, Joe. I knew the Neptune was a Seamaster copy but I wasn't sure if the dimensions were exactly the same. Looks like they are though. Looks like it's a faithful copy at least.

That looks like a nice setup. Pretty close to what I'm doing. The MAS 13x8.5 is my prop of choice too. My motor is a slightly higher kV, I think, so on 5S it draws just over 1000W.

Another good idea. "Skeg"...I like that word.

I see from the pics that your FB braced the t-tail. I thought about doing that with some aluminum tubing, but I don't recall anyone else mentioning that it may be necessary. More to think about I guess.
