Viper Twin - no rudder control

I went flying with the VT today and came in too hot on landing.

The landing itself was good, except it had way too much speed and continued across the grass and off the 6ft drop into the lake.

It performed great as a boat although I could have used a rudder, or twin ESC's. After a couple of "blips" of the throttle I got it lodged in some rocks and managed to recover it with no damage (just some wet feet).

this is not how to do a wet motor break-in

not a scratch, and the electronics were safe and dry in the foam so only the motors got wet and once dried and oiled they're as good as new also.

Need Rudders?

Need Rudders?

Don't think so. You just landed in the water wrong side down!

You don't need a rudder, you need floats
