Speed is Key
To me it seems like two Spartans stuck toghether

Boaters are nice people.
All video's show the boat slightly porpoising at speed, something I find very unbecoming for a cat and potentially a running attitude(stability) issue.

For a RTR it's nice, but for it's size it's boringly slow...

Regards, Jan.

I would change regular rudder to Dual pick up rudder, change trim tabs, change prop, change strut etc. Also water proof boat

I don't have this boat, but I'm assuming you could use the dual pickup rudder from the Spartan.

For waterproofing use CorrosonX. The steering servo, esc, ad motor should be waterproof from the factory. The radio box says to be waterproof, but it will leak eventually. Take the receiver out of its casing, and put CorrosionX on it and let it dry fully. Then you will be all set waterproof wise. Remember to leave the hatch of when you are storing the boat.

I have had this boat for a week.
1st run on 6s just a 10 sec burst, it ran like a scalded dog then shut down! Problem? Batt wires melted the solder joint on the ESC.
2nd run after resolder of ESC, on 5s, ran great for total of three 5 minute runs w/cooling in between runs. Good day except won't run 6s as advertised.
3rd trip,launched boat and away she went,BUT would not turn! When I finally got her back, and in the shop, I found the servo works great as long as you don't touch the throttle!!
Man! This boat has been a royal pain, did I mention that the rubber motor cooler thing, almost sunk the boat?
I sure wish I had this to do over, it would not be this brand you can be sure. By the way a call to the factory rep was a complete waste of time, as he denies there is a problem W/ESC, and wanted me to send the whole works to them(on my dime)! I will repair myself w/anon Castle Creations 180 size ESC. I COULD OF HAD A GREAT BOAT FOR LESS MONEY. NOT HAPPY!

How are you guys liking your m41? I don't see a heck of a lot of interest in it on other forums. Biggest thing I noticed is guys thumbing their nose at it because of the plastic/abs hull.

To be fair, the hobby shop put a glitch buster on the receiver, so now have rudder and she is very fast on 5 cells, also put an aftermarket water jacket in place of cheap stock rubber one. Boat comes back dry and I haven't been able to flip or roll it ,corners like a cat!lol all the wild colors really stand out and kinda grow on you. All that said I bought a Velos48, while I was mad at theM-41 so got to sell the M-41.
