Can anyone help especially with step by step instructions. Better still, by sending me a video something similar to that which has been seen on YouTube. There is one about upgrading but that showed the deck already removed.

I need help with dismantling the Hobby Engine Southampton Tug Boat which I purchased today. I want first to remove the deck without damaging any part, naturally. I know the removal of screws is necessary all around the deck but for some reason this dose not release the deck unless, it is secured with glue or am I missing something?

Then, I can remove all RC equipment replacing it with my own. Lastly, I want to upgrade the battery from the standard 6 cell AA 800mAh 7.2v to a 1800mAh 7.4v or even a 3000mAh Lipo which will probably have to be relocated.

All help, advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Keep it clean. Thank you.

I assume you have moved on from the above.

How did it go?
