Hey guys hows things going?
Ive been months without work now. Been so bored during the days. Been so depressed.
Dad and I got a gas powered boat. Its 1.2mtrs long. We had a few runs with it but we cant keep it running now when its in the water. It keeps stalling when its under load in the water. We have had a couple of tries to get it going again with no luck. Dad got a go pro camera to use on it but it didnt last long. We put the go pro on dads little electric boat and had a go. But it was so choppy and it flipped and we lost the go pro as it happened. Such a shame.
BJ i saw your footage of the skipper. So glad i saw this footage as I was gonna get dad to get me one but it looks like it flies like *****
I might have to start selling off my hobby stuff soon as Ive got no job and very little money coming in.
Anyways im struggling on so far

'Bout time you showed up, ya slacker. Oct 2 since your last post!
Just kidding - we've been keeping your seat warm in your absence.
Sorry to hear things are going all that well job/finance wise at the moment. Here's hoping it picks up soon
Bummer losing the GoPro like that. With your gasser engine, where is your low-speed idle jet set at? If you've got a manual for it, it might be worth trying to reset it to the factory default (?). Conking during idle is often a low-speed jet problem (??)
Re the Skipper - it's one of the best planes in my fleet... now that I got the CG issues sorted - you have to set the CG 10mm forward of the step, not 10mm aft of it (like it says in the bloody instructions. Typical Chinese )
Hang in there, Dude. Fingers crossed you get an even break soon

Hey BJ the boat we got is this one here:
We have tried adjusting both screws in and out but with no much luck. The boat will run in the water for about ten feet and then stall. Then I have to wade out and get it. We have made the fuel as per instructions so i dont think its the fuel. I think we just have to get these screws in the right spot for it to work. The first time we ran it, it went like a champ.
After the first time we ran the boat the rudder and the whole throttle assembly locked up. So dad got some oil out and got the rudder going but had to remove the whole throttle setup. He soaked it in some oil and got it going again some how.
Its been a month since ive seen dad now and messed around with the boat but im sure we will try again soon.
Any advice guys on how to get this boat going again? We cant find any documentation on the motor itself and have also contacted hobbyking
