Nice choice-My drives are really close together(motors spin 1/8 apart) and the MarkV is long compared to its width with a deep draft..so I decided that differential thrust wouldn't do me any good. I wyed the radio to the two ESC's and the same for steering (don't want the nozzles banging into one another)and also reverse . The boat has two servos for steering and two servos for reverse (because of the loads on them) so I can change them up any time by just a wire swap-probably not though.

Going to mount the pumps on the same center line as the real boat. If it doesn't work I will just build another hull.

Any photos of you pump,motor ESC, servos setup ?

Thanks,Bob.

Man you boat is narrow. 8 1/2'

Think I'm going to like being 13"+ wide.

They're all the same just get something reasonable in price and with the features that you're looking for.

How about Battery's and a Charger ? Thinking 2 x 2200mah 4s The LiPo is all new to me.

I took my old 4Ch. radio (1980's ) into the local hobby shop and they said its to old and not to be used any more ? Sad.

But will look for a replacement ?
