Ivo correctly says.
To what is the time, a mini eco it's a toy, a small boat to let pleasure.

But when you start the race on these mini boats this - is sport and adrenaline "of their ears".

And about the propeller - I apply for these mini's propellers.
Diam.24 mm Pitch 38 mm

No matter how much it may slap the ego these ARE toys, like it or not we are ALL paying with expensive toys no matter how you try to twist it.

1.
an object, often a small representation of something familiar, as an animal or person, for children or others to play with; plaything.
3.
something that serves for or as if for diversion, rather than for serious pratical use.
5.
something diminutive, especially in comparison with like objects.

See toys!

There is a difference between play and race, I'm sure you can agree.

It's not that easy to sell a suitable prop for racing. There is more value to a racer than to one who is simply playing with a toy.

These are small models, but they ARE serious.

Well I ordered one. I'm also building a Toysport Zorro, We'll see how they compare.
I wish there was organized racing for this class in the US

I'd love to share (if needed) with you the experience of racing these MINI submarines.
We race on these MINI boats since 2005. There are rules, there are rules of racing...

Main:
1. Participants in the race: up to 8 people
2. Race distance equilateral triangle, the length of each side: 98 feet (30 meters)
3. Race time - 6 minutes.

The speed of the boat and how it happens, you can see on this video:

Mini ECO expert FINAL ROUND ECOMASTER 2013 (6 min 23 sec)


This is the final race on the Cup *Ecomaster*, Ukraine, Dnepropetrovsk, September 2013

Will warn you at once - race on these models oval race common in the States is absolutely nutralise and boring..

If you will be doing in the States of ECO race with a sufficient number of participants - 'll gladly come to race..

Got a Glamour EVO V.3 from Kukorelli and so far it's great. Although I need a better motor. So guys, what motor do you recommend for racing on 2S lipo?
