I guess you're referring to the Revolt? The whole top of it looks too "boxy" to me.

That's an aquacraft boat? What is it? Looks like it runs great.

The water was exceptionally flat at Ackerman early this morning. (It changed quickly though). At least Dave got to run hid SAW rigger before the chop set in.
Battery issues with this one, it killed two 3s packs at half throttle.

By the time I got around to running the Cheetah the chop had already started. Chop slows a boat down regardless of what anybody says. This one GPS'd at 60 last Sunday when my video camera was broke. Today it was about 3 mph slower.

I had some issues with the Falcon cat too. Again, about 3 mph slower in the chop than last week when the video camera was not working. I managed to spin it out a time or two as well.
What we thought was LVC or a thermal cutoff in th warm water wound up being a prop drive dog that cracked.

This is Brian's (rckong) Sprintcat with one of the new 1680 kv Castle 1717's
Somehow it managed to slide the stuffing tube forward so it started rubbing against the motor to flex coupler.

Some footage of my old Mean Machine twin running on 5s. Chris on the wheel and me running camera. Almost as fast as the Cheetah on 6s.

A 5s run on my Fightercat Cheetah running the offset offshore course. Could have used a little more zoom with the camera. Thought it hit a thermal or LVC on one of the motors but turned out to be the steering servo broke loose from the hull.

Last vid of the day. This used to be Hugh's (hebner's) Team Believer cat. Now owned by one of our new members Jeremy.
Not bad for his 1st outing with it.
