    For $3000 can we "tidy-up" the wiring a little?

    Commodore-H,
    Let me start by telling you your Orca is a stunning boat!
    AND to think you scratch built it from plans and a single 2X4 is, at least for me, mind boggling!
    To answer your question, the eBay listing does not mention a battery nor transmitter, but it does come with the plywood case!
    From what I can see from this picture, I think it still has an old 72Mhz analog receiver.
    I'm guessing the second servo is there to operate the old Dumas mechanical ESC, but I don't see one in the picture.
    What do you expect for only $2,995.00, I guess?

    So far my collection resembles "The Island of Misfit Toys". I've picked up several boats that are old builds and have been neglected. I'm giving them the TLC they need, hoping to bring them back to their former glory. Once I get enough practice/ experience I intend to take on a full build.

    Wow! That's a little pricey! That's more than I generally spend. Is the battery included or is that extra?

    I enjoy seeing if can build what I like for minimum cost, using what I have at hand.

    I built my version of the Orca, (from Jaws) from a single 2 x 4, $1.85. I think plans were $15.00, paint was a few dollars too.

    That's me holding the kit

    Lew,
    Yes, I have been able to pick up a few nice built boats quite reasonably here as well.
    And, I have helped families sell model boat collections after a family member passes.
    Most times one cannot even get close to the cost of the unbuilt kit for them.
    The boat I posted is a 3.5 hour 200 mile drive from me in Wisconsin.
    I cannot imagine anywhere in this world where an old build Dumas Cobra is worth $2,995.00.
    I've owned 3 copies of that exact boat, and have never paid over $100.00 for them
    I just thought it would be a good "conversation starter" post.

    Someone in our club (SSMBC) was given one. Spouse dies and family TRIES to sell the deceased's models. Model boats have little value here.

    I'm trying to sell unbuilt kits with one hand and spending a kings ransome on model aircraft kits and very expensive engines with the other. Yes, I have decided to dabble in The Occult! A step over to the dark side. We are our own worst enemies!
    If it don't fit, use a hammer to make it fit....
