Why do you say that?

Also, do you run your 500 Pro at 3000RPM? I ordered both an 11 and 12T pinion today. It looks like I'd want the 12T for ~3000RPM @ 90% with YGE gov store.

Success !!! Finally busted my boat cherry today .

Was Awsome.. The problem Leo and I were having was with the carburetor. Boat sat for to long in storage and the carb became gummed up and this would cause it to stall within 30 seconds.. Leo changed it out for a new one.. And no more stalling.. Got the trim set just right.. Did about 20 laps / 10 min.. ( half a tank of gas )
Because this was a first for me, I just really wanted to get a feel for how she turns ect... I'd say I pushed it up around 45mph at a few points .. ( moves much faster ) Had to avoid running over a few ducks at times.. Those damn ducks just wont move out of the way.. Pretty Bizzar behavior.
Anyways - - - Any of you guys considering getting a boat...Do it.. It was a lot of fun.. And the Gas / Noise factor just makes it Kool -er .

I've thought about it. Maybe when I get a solid job. They are kind of expensive to get into :/

I was joking because they sent me the top of the line 3SX with bail out.

You will find the 11t will give you much needed head room.

You don't have to start out with an " insane" boat. ( I Had total beginners luck in my corner ) .. Just pickup an electric PNP from Amain for $150-$200 ... The Beauty of RC boats compared to Helis it that unless your slamming into an embankment.. Its much much cheaper then Helis when all said and done.

But yes, when I was your age. I could not have afforded any of this stuff back then..I was lucky in just having Soda pop money now and then.

Im only about 15mph away...Not bad for day one eh..... Im working on a camera mount 2marrow.. Should have some water video this sunday. More then likely me dodging all them damn ducks on the water.

Well I think this thread has run it's course... Just arnt enough people around Heli -Rcgroups anymore. That and I need to take all my boat jargon over to the proper threads. Im tellin ya Leo, this place was rocking 1-2 years ago.. So many jumped ship to helifreak.
