Okay, I gotta ask... what makes yours $30 better than the Miss Hanger One? Plus $3 more for shipping? Not knocking you, just curious.

I think it's much bigger, thicker material, looks like a very well finished kit.

I think its only $20 more then the MHO that being $59 and this one is $79. I just thought it would simplify things to go $10 on the shipping cause I can ship anywhere in the US for that. The reason it's more is because its almost twice the size and is built out of 6mm depron with the exception of the cockpit. The 6mm is far more durable then 3mm. Also there is close to 10 foot of carbon rods and flat bar included in the kit along with carbon fiber control horns. For some reason I dunno why but the Splash doesn't have any tendencies at all to spin out when on the water. The blu cor boat did this one doesn't. Been so bussy with the X-Mas thing I haven't been able to do a video but as soon as I can you can see for your self how good it handles on the water.

Tim, thanks very much for you order you won't dissapointed.

Ooops, I no sooner hit the submit button and I got a notice of having a pm from Ben-rod. I tried to PayPal the money to that email address and paypal said that the address was not usable, or something to that effect. Check and see if you gave me the entire email address.

Thanks,
Tim

And besides, it just looks plain cool. I will give an extra $10.00 for the size and $10.00 for the cool.
I am beginning to find with these old eyes that the bigger the better when controlling something that can go away from me very quickly.

I don't know Tim, that wizard you did on the optical illusion shows me your eyes are just fine... LOL I'm sure you do the Splash proud, I can't wait to see what you do with it.

Hello everyone, here's some vids of the SPLASH in action.http://media.putfile.com/SPLASH-Balls-of-Steal Sorry for the poor quality but this video gig taint easy. Hopefully you can get an idea of how it flies. I would love to see it in the hands of someone that could really wring it out. That Hacker A30 is one sweetheart of a motor...

Man, the wind is absolutely dead here today and 80 degrees. Hopefully I can pin my camera man down and I'll do a video on a soccer field.
