Question
Does anyone make a sub-12-inch Unlimited Hydro?

I've seen the Miss Seattle from Aquacraft, but at 17 inches, it's a little bigger than what I have planned for it... I know I could get a blackjack 9, or Joysway cat, or any of those... but I love the look of the unlimited hydros...

Thanks boaters

I bought a scratch and dent Aquacraft Gp1 hydro from TowerHobbies, it was in nearly new condition for like $65.If you haven't driven a hydro yett, just to give you a heads up they require alot of tuning compared to most boats.Its worth it though, I was running my Gp1 on a very choppy lake recently and it took me around 10 attempts to launch it before I finally had it planing.But after running that thing a few laps with it skipping around wildly I was very proud of my driving skills.

If you'd like to build one yourself BBY has a pretty nice looking hydro.You can buy the complete kit, or just the hull for $30 and buy the hardware as you can afford it.I'm wanting to build a Micro Scat Cat myself, I've seen videos of them breaking 50mph.

Not exactly a kit at the moment, but i am currently making a 3d printed version.

Currently I have the hull, which seems to float and plane in the pool with weight (ballast) on board, however it has not been powered yet. I also have the power system designed, just waiting on install and motor mount.

I might eventually upload it to shape ways for those out there who do not have a 3d printer.

How about 6 inch. A company out of Washington state made kits for track racing. Small motor and 2 AA batteries. I R/C'd mine. Sorry that was almost 18 years ago, I don't remember the company.
