- a blast from the past
- much more primitive

I have a new design and some who wants to help out with the composite aspect. Now I just need to get a new plug made. It's safe to say that this design may be the most advanced micro race boat RCG has ever seen and will see for a long time to come.

The vee is ready to go.
- FG hull
- 140mm long, 156mm with all hardware
- 40mm wide
- adjustable trim tabs
- fully adjustable stinger drive
- NO FLEX SHAFT DRAMA!
- interchangeable rudder mounts for aesthetics or offset
- pure beastliness

No more till later.

EDIT:
The only down side is the high part count. Without the trim tab associated parts, there are 24 parts. With the tabs, 28.

140 by 40mm? sounds like an open ocean racer, a far cry from a crackerbox
so going long and narrow instead of short and maneuverable?
interested to see what comes from it

Ya I'm going for a more reliable, less playful type thing. You know, trying to get a little more serious on straights.

I was looking at the mSRX main motor for power. It is an 8.4mm with an even longer can! I want to try out my custom props too. Everything about this would be purposed for it. I want to use an Rx31 within a custom housing to make it waterproof. I may need an esc as I'm scared that the standard 2 amp would blow especially since it is built in. Also an hk5320 servo which shouldn't have to worry about water too.

The hardest part is getting the plug made. What's funny is that that was the easy part for the cat, and the hard part was everything else. It's backwards now.
