Well its all fitted and running now but still waiting for my counter rotating props

i have changed the angle of the prop tubes and managed to get the C of G of the motors much lower and with the re position of the ESC's i have got the over all C of G where i want it with loads of adjustment FWD and AFT to get the balance right once its on the water and the slots on the strut brackets have been elongated to give loads of adjustments with prop angle etc

with the batterys fitted low down in the sponsons i can hold the boat on its side at 90 deg let go and it will still fall the right way up so this low Cog will help on corners

i have cut everything down to save weight its 1.5KG more now with the bigger motors and flexes / struts so ready to run it tips the scales at 7.5KG that should help with the power to weight and hopefully improve the run time
