Does look like it is ready to be born. So you are claiming to be the father? Or the mother of all springers? Please make up your mind

Hallo you all,

this is my first post in this board so please excuse my language skills.
My german is quite good, my english is much BADder.

@ Toesup
Wow good idea, it will be difficult to play polo against an unvisible player.
Nice work your new springer, but the original "spycam for hidden things" shows that there isn't a superstructure on this hull.
Isn't it right that the rules say there has to be a superstructure of optional design?
I'm not sure if the invisible effect works so properly with a superstructure.

For those of foreign nationals who forgot yesterday was April Fools Day (people play innocuous tricks to fool people, for example google renamed itself Topeka yesterday). Coincidentally it was my anniversary yesterday, which tells you about my sense of humor, I picked the wedding date!

I knew that it was fools day
Thats the reason why I took my original "spycam for hidden things" to have a look at the hidden springer.

Tried to get a little humor in a german board, too.
I published Toesups concrete-springer, but nobody answered. Seems that most german dont like this sense of humor.

By the way, just a question about voltage.
Here in germany slow drilling motors are normaly 12v so 6v motors can only be used geared. Also a lot of baterypacks and other components are on 7.2 V

Is it easier to get a simple and slow 6V motor for direct drive in USA?
In relation to the available props it should make between 3000 and 6000 rounds per minute in usage. (how do you translate Lastdrehzahl?)

At the moment I realize three springers.
One for super-class on 12V kort-nozzles and becker-rudder and for me and my son two equal hulls with equal technics. Ready to rumble.
For these I think about to make them ready for international contests, so I need motors on 6V.

Thanks for any tip.
