Scorp thanks for the heads up about the parts. I was going over the boat til about 12:30am this morning and found another crack along the inside bottom of one of the tail fins...its about fingernail long...should i ask for a replacement?? Or is this to be expected for the cost??

I was hoping the other t5692 780kv would become available but it is still on backorder. Its 50 volts with of course the lower kv..but this motor does 40v with about the same specs. Since i am new to this i figured this would be an ok motor ..like with planes..there is always room for growth..

esc:

after checking this esc against the Swordfish (scorp) it looks very much like the same unit with a different rapper..we'll see..

and of course the "coke-cola boat" hydro:
http://www.nitrorcx.com/99b-12001-ck-1300-kit.html

doesnt look like a coke can a bit..??

I ordered the 2 traxxas 2056 waterproof servos today from my buddy clement at toysonics.com..with my discount..$27.00 each.

All of my 8 planes have used/use spektrum so im leaning towards them..what is a relatively decent price range to stick too?

WOW! Getting your hands wet

Just got off instant chat with nitrorcx...they are going to send me a shipping label so i they replace my hydro.. The cracks are really not that much..but its the principal...something brand new shouldnt be broken..the label will come then i will send the broken unit back..they are going to ship me the new one so hopefully i should have a defect free unit by late next week..?? That will probably be about the same time all my parts show up......

I checked the boat again when i got home..after talking to nitrorcx..by the way if you ever have to ..the best way is the online chat under support...or rcdiscuss.com..down at the bottom of that page are the different groups you can post to..they answered that pretty quick as well.

Anyway..i checked that fin when i got home...it was like totally loose...i didnt move it all when i first looked at it..it looked solid..i was just sort of stuck on the cracks..but that thing was completely broken...

I checked OSE and HK and all the parts i ordered so far have been shipped...going to vegas tonight to see if i can recoup!!
