    Hi Colin.
    When you make videos, please send it at the correct speed, with half the accelerator, but with the camera off... ahahahah!

    That's a very nice model and I agree with you about the cruising.
    A good scale model should cruise nicely at a fast walking pace.
    My Caroline manages 13 knots true speed which is a tad fast but half throttle is perfect.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    It is a big motor I agree, but all the smaller quality motors peaked near 20k rpm and I wanted the throttle control a slower motor would give me. It should cruise nicely I hope close to half throttle.

    That's a big motor for a 4ft boat.
    Must be a heavy beast, any pictures yet.
    Cheers Colin.

    Thanks Colin.. A lovely craft. You must be very proud of her.

    Mine has yet to see the water with me. The little girl is a shade under 4ft.. I acquired used and I'm in the process of refitting the running gear. I had no idea of the condition or service life of the original installation so I am starting from new. Your input is most helpful!!

    Regards,

    DG
