I noticed that you had another support holding the strut???? Why. You don't need one???? And you didn't use a brass furrel to attach the flex cable to the prop shaft???? The flex cabe should work fine if you use the correct parts.

I get a lot of drive parts here http://www.zippkits.com/ They're reasonably priced and shipping is dirt cheap. You can make your boat with a surface drive without using a stinger,by using a longer strut bracket or a standoff like in the pic below and bringing your stuffing tube out the rear of the transom.Pic won't enlarge for some reason.

RC boat Rock Star
I've only dealt with WHH twice. The first time things went fine. The second time they lost my order due to lightning hitting a power pole outside the shop frying their computers, power and phones.
