Pro Boat Stiletto 29 / Mystic 29 waterproofing
I know someone who has a modified Stiletto 29 and it had a few problems..
Mainly it was prone to flipping over when corners where taken to sharply and when it did it wasn't waterproof in that there was water in the radio box and ESC etc.
My question is - the stock version of this boat - is it still prone to flipping more than say a Mystic 29?
What about water intake once it has flipped? is the battery box watertight?
Is the mystic 29 any better in this regard also?
I am trying to decide between getting a Stiletto or a Mystic and would appreciate some comments mainly on the waterproof aspects - not that I plan on flipping it - but if it happens I don't want a wet ESC that goes on fire (like the person I know).
Thanks for any info.

Hi scot, I own a mystic and it has a tupperware type lid that goes over the top of the hull where the electronics are. Then there's the hatch that goes over that, I always put a piece of waterproof tape over the hull hatch before I run it. You can go to youtube and search, 'stilletto unboxing' and that should help you. Also the stiletto is harder to setup then the mystic. You can also trim the steering on the controller so it doesnt turn to hard an flip. Happy Boating..Oh, also check this out, how to waterproof receivers and servos. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1584854

Outboard tunnels are harder to setup and drive than inboard cats, but can be more fun/rewarding in the end once you have them running right. They're also more sensitive to wind and chop.
