26cc Blade from SDSHOBBY.com

I have just ordered the Blade 26cc Gasoline from SDShobby.com



check out the details of the boat:
http://www.sdshobby.net/blade-26cc-g...tem-p-465.html

the boat comes with a Chinese made Zenoeh 26cc engine.

the price was really good especially for the shipping to the Oman (middle east)

has anyone got any experience with these boats they supply?

I watched the video in the second posting. You're getting what you paid for. The thing is awfully slow, probably over-propped with a 78mm. A wannabe Zen, that's for sure! The funniest thing could be that it's a rip-off of another Chinese boat!

No, I wouldn't own one. I also hope that you read the warranty on it and their exchange policy.

well in the part of the world were I live (Oman, Middle-east)I havent got much choices,a and shipping a boat from the US is alot of money.
I have ordered alot of large gas planes from SDShobby and thier products are good in the planes devision and i thought I would tryout a gas boat just for fun, I will not be racing it or anything just a bash around.

for the cheap price if the motor goes wrong I will just trash the motor and buy a proper tuned Zenoah motor from a reputed dealer in the US and install in on the boat.

I have already placed an order for the boat. and one I get it I will start a thread with details of my experiance with SDShobby's boats to share with you guys. these boats might be a hidden gem that needs to be discovered. similer to the Plane DLE engines when they first started. no one cared about them and thought they were crap chinse engines. after they proved themselfs they are one of the most used gas engines on most airfields around the world.

For that price I see nothing but trouble. The hull looks real flimsy.

Ok I have received my boat to Oman from SDShobby in less than 5 days after placing the order. All I have to say is wow that was really quick for a Chinese vendor.

I have attached some detailed pics of the boat. the boat comes with everything you need to run except a the Servos, TX, Receiver and Battery.

Make a hole as a nozzle that you get out of the T-bar. Oil is not too thick, it is enough to one launch a model. You can use the waste oil.
