In the morning, I am planning to run the Coast Guard Rescue Ship at the man made lake adjacent to my RC Club, Moon Port Modelers and this time I am installing the Garmin Geko 201 GPS for Ground Speed measurements.

Stay tuned!
As promised, I went out this morning and test ran my Coast Guard Rescue Ship. I may perhaps stay out at the Lake for a Good Long Time since the Motor and ESC did not exhibit any warm to the touch manners and of course the Forced Water Cooling worked flawlessly.

Some pictures of today's action!

Initial Re-set of all parameters on the Garmin Geko 201 Display!

Lake Side!

Ready to Run!
