Robbie, The 33.5" model is going to be set up with twin direct drive S-280's. I haven't decided on how I will wire them yet, but at this point I'm leaning toward parrellel using a 7.2V 2400 mah NiCD pack. The way things are going I'm going to need the weight anyhow so it might as well be used for duration as well as ballast.
I also plan to use the new Pro Boat "Riptide" ESC with BEC and reverse. I just recently discovered these controls and tried one in my Wyeforce Tug with terific results. It has the smoothest transition through the deadband of any controller I've used so far, and with a tug, that's really important. Should work very well in this boat too.
