Good morning!
Another good job, Bernhard! but handy as you are, I do not understand why, you do not built, your own hull. It will avoid you, some disapointment, and you probably do better.
In any case, I shall follow up, as I am sure of the result.
Regards.

I have to agree with KBIO. Bernhard, please build your own hull, I'm sure it will be much better than what you can buy.

Hello!
,real boring,
Ah!Ah! But everything is boring in building a boat! Not fast enough!I have the same problem! I want it to be finished before I even look at the drawing.
Are sure that the Sa´to V4 is adapted to your launch. It seems to me that it is a single effect , fast engine.
Cheers Bernhard!

ps: you get an MP.

Huh, what?

You used servo wire and twisted it? And painted it to look like rope?

Hello!
Bernhard means:
- One servo for the rotation of the head , probably located underneath the banc.
- One servo for the rudder, located inside the hull.
Both are connected to the receiver , thru a "Y" wire connection .
So , both are moving together but oposite ways.
He is a genius !
Cheers!
