SG&K 1920 Gentlemans Runabout Mk2 - Posted: 20th Jun 2017
Hi All
I have started my redesigned runabout by increasing the length to 860mm. The motor and ESC will move to under the removal dash for better weight balance. Increase the engine hatch to get the Lipo battery, receiver and servo into. This will be hidden by the deck planking and the original hatch size will get it back to scale look. Brushless motor 3639-1100kv,3S battery, 60A car ESC and 37mm 3 blade prop.

Hi Guys
Cut out for the engine hatch and started on the making the hatch, also started cutting into frame 3 for where I am installing the motor and ESC.

All the wires will go under the flooring.

I have made the flooring in two pieces before skinning the sides.

I did this on the Sea Hornet and made life a bit easier!!!

Hi All
Only installed the battery floor and mounted the servo today.
