Genesis maiden and rocket vid

Hey guys run the genesis today after all the mods done and fully rebuilt
The offset rudder works fab in the clockwise direction but not as good clockwise but i run clockwise now anyway the boat handles much better than before with with original inline strut/rudder setup.
The biggest problem is prop torque even with 3s pack in left side of hull as you look from transom and the offset strut but once up and running its great.
I run the 4214/2 prop to start,cavitation was an issue
2nd run i tried the 4217/3 and all it did was cavitate but once it bit its quick,but i wont be running this prop again.
Temps on both runs were barely warm,and the cap bank worked a treat
The rocket run was cut short after it got airborn,nose dived into the pool and hit the bottom of the pool and damaged the nose so a repair is needed before it takes to the water again.

Genesis
Genesis modded maiden (4 min 58 sec)

Genesis modded maiden 2nd run (5 min 4 sec)

Rocket

Hey Daz,

The genesis looks like it is handling better shame about Rocket I would not have thought that pond was so shallow looks like the red nose repair will fix her.

Daz the camera man did an awesome job

Ye i was shocked as hell when i saw it flip then drift to the embankment after 5 mins or so with its nose missing, i know he didn't hit anything.
When you review the footage it jumped of the chop the back end touched down first causing the back to jump up and the nose to dive then it disapeared and popped back up upside down. Apparently the pool is 2 1/2 ft deep, so it dived quickly and quite deep, must be to do with its very sharp nose.

I really do feel for ye Daz, you do have luck, its just all bad

Hiya Barry
The pool is only 30" deep lol,ill repair just a bummer thats all
The genesis is great,next run bigger pool and bigger prop but I do think its quicker than the saga and more stable all round so far
We'll see how it handles the bigger

Damn ducks!!!

If I did hit one & kill it, I'd only feel obliged to eat it.
