41" Twin Cat for Racing

The V2 Twin Drive Zonda Catamaran looks like a solid 41" boat that's all about one thing, speed. It's well built and comes outfitted with high quality electronics and hardware. The hull is made from fiberglass with a layer of Kevlar included for extra support during demanding high speed runs. The power system included has two Seaking 120A water cooled and water proof speed controllers connected to two TFL SSS 3674 brushless motors with a smoking kv of 2075 with adjustable twin struts for tuning. All that power is transferred to two counter rotating metal props.

The Zonda Cat is listed at $794.95 and you'll just need to provide a steering servo, your radio system, and two 3S or 4S 45C ~5000mAH Lipo batteries to get yourself powering through the water.

Just received mine! Build quality seems pretty good. Like any RTR/ATR, you need to go over the build. There were a few nuts/bolts that needed to be tightened. I removed most anyhow to give them a shot of blue locktite as well. I did remove the Deans connectors in favor of larger bullets. Other than that, she is a beautiful cat!

Kid at heart..
Can you confirm if this is fiberglass or CF. If I recall correctly, the V1 version was CF.

I have the single engine version which I'm about to sell so I can get the twin. Not sure if it was just mine but I left some of the supplied waterproof tape on the side of the hull for 30min, when I went to pull the tape of it took a small part of the clear coat and decal underneath. When I get my next one I'm going to give it a light clear coat. This is a very nice looking boat

My single engine version is the genesis hull which the same paint scheme as this one and the gel coat is pretty thin on the sides. This hull looks the same as my genesis but with Kevlar inside (had a look at my local store) I'll be getting this twin soon, so I'll put an extra gel coat on. Really nice boat and like this new paint scheme.

that sounds not so good if its the Genesis hull, its to narrow to ma taste, the Genesis hull have 25% wide hull of its length, i would like it to be more like 30-35%

The hull is not the same as the genesis. It's the TFL Zonda hull, this hull is wider than the genesis.

Any standard size servo will fit, but I use the standard Futaba servo (S3003 I think) as they're fairly cheap, well made and reliable. Not waterproof, but can be made waterproof if you feel necessary.
