dumas USS CROCKETT

hey guys,

It s a jump in the scale boat rc world for me. I dont know anything about rc boat model but I wanted to try. I already made a couple of planes(gliders and PSS) but I moved in virginia and it is not a good place for slope soaring so....here I am.

I choose de Dumas USS Crockett because I was looking for a military project and I love the shape of this boat class.

itstarts to look like a ship!
I dont know if I did it in the "RC BOAT" way but I like it.
For the next step I used the technic I love for my rc plane.

Looks nice but still need to be alive
so I choose 2 class 550 motor
and a standard servo for both rudders
So In the back hatch, I have access to the direction servo, receiver and 6V 1500 mah battery for the reception ( both stolen from one of my rc glider)
