    Amphitruck. (adding to harbour)
    Amphibious 4x4 rear drive truck. Uses 1 brushed 550 geared drive motor (850rpm/12v) for ground use, and 2 28mm 2200kv outrunners for swimming. Has a GT Power sound unit, fire monitor (uses a brushed water pump on a 2s LiPo, has a 45deg range) lights, (head and tail) and a small air pump to pressurise the rear diffs to prevent water ingress. Has twin rudders using a std servo, (as does the steering and fire monitor). Has an RHIB with outboard which stores in the rear, tool boxes, removable side levelling jacks (stored in the rear) and a converted rear red flashing bike lamp on the roof, with 6 flash modes.

    Hi Ron, geared motor arrived and is fitted, runs a lot better now with the lower gearing, and doesn't struggle up hills . Will do another vid when weather permits. I'll have to find some new areas to have a play in, for a bit of variety, although the estuary is pretty much perfect. It has all the elements,-sun, sand and surf ๐Ÿ˜Š
