No worries on the ESC mate. It's an RC-Hydros esc. Bullet proof.

Not enough battery power to run the new setup and overcome the Novak lipo saver in the B-28.

The airboat ran pretty good today with a new power system.

A long gone Irregular came back today, Cap'n Vic!

Cap'n Mark was there with more amazing builds, One of them a G-Scale barge with G-Scale trains on it and hand built tracks.

Another new guy has come back for a 3rd time so I think we have a new member.

The spy from Balboa was there again. Geez, is he trying to be an Irregular??

Another once in a while guy came back out again, Cap'n Marv. He is a long time Giant Scale airplane guy but he is now dabbling in boats. He has a Marlin RTR that was his only boat before but today he arrived with a kit built Midwest fireboat. He did a real nice job of it.

The usual reprobates were there today too. A mixture of sheetboats and power boats.

Avidjeepr was doing double duty, sailing and taking video/photos.

Check out this capture from Kim's video. The airboat, when making a turn, is banked like an airplane.
