A fast sleek fine handling model by graupner - ok for up to 6 cells - after that it get wild as it is a small hull - might be worth a try with a micro setup in it

modelled on the Winston Eagle unlimtied "the Lobster Boat"

Are we talking about the Graupner Tornado Hydroplane (That's the one I know, and that's the one I own)?

Standard equipment is Speed 700 Turbo + 12 SC cells. Jürgen

Yes, the graupner Hydro (about 60 cm long, I think).

Speed700 + 12 cells??? in that small hull?
