This is one of the nicest boats on this thread. Beautiful work.

You should consider moving the CG aft or adding some wight to the back of the boat. It will go faster and turn MUCH better.

That's one nice boat as whoever built it seems like they knew what they were doing. I've got the same engine and pipe in my JAE .21 outrigger hydro except yours doesn't have the remote needle. I actually prefer your setup to mine.

Did I read snowing? You're not from around here! It's almost 1:30 AM and still 81 degrees.

Yeah it definitely is and yeah the man I brought it off has been in the hobby for a long time and it has a 3rd channel mixture control but he said he will by pass it for me and set it up so I don't have to play with it too much till I learn more given its my first nitro boat and I'm definitely not from the states lol I live in Australia near our capital and its freezing and very windy lol

Thanks, it's a lot of work to have this result!

Yes I have put a new propeller and change the stringer set-up. Now It go on the water like a train and it is more aerial.

This boat is my own build all in wood. It is also my own plans made from 3D modelling.
It is 59in long with a zenoah 26cc and x470 propeller.

This is my new video with the new set up, I have got a better balancing of the hull.

Ah, you must mean this vid:
MHZ Chaparral (6 min 57 sec)

Well i posted that other one because the quality is a bit better and well that little spin-out is kinda cool...
Water condition in the first vid i posted isn't perfect for the setup for my boat aswell, and i was too lazy to change the prop...

So, here's a couple of my boats. They are all about 4-5 yrs old now, so I put a new lick of paint on a couple of them over the last couple of months.

60" MTI with Twin mild mod Zenoah's 260's. I use this the least as it weighs too much and the engines / pull starters have given me hernias...I actually hate this thing until I am at the river and both engines are working in synch and screaming out.

Rio 51 with Zenoah 260 & WHH M5 head. This purrs along and is very stable in the waves, clutched, so very easy to play around with, when I am on my own.

Aeromarine Avenger Pro with Zenoah 260 upgraded to WHH M6. My favorite.

Aeromarine Outerlimits with Zenoah 230. Old faitful. Not that fast, but never fails to start on the first pull and will go all day long without any issues and it doesn't weight that much.

None of these are actually set up perfectly, hopefully will get round to it in 2013!
