    Hi not so much a build blog more of an assembly blog.
    A Trinity Hacker 1/18 scale 700 mm long, did away with supplied speed 600 motor, fitted a small brushless one, a surpass c2216 800kv motor. Try 7.4v first if she needs more 11.1v should make her fly.
    much lighter reduced weight from 1200g to 1000g should help performance.

    Hi I like the boat would be interesting with jet drive.
    they are available quite cheap for the nqd jet boat from ยฃ9.01on ebay item no. 282721477302 comes with cheap brushed motor can be converted to brushless to make things interesting hope this gives you food for thought for maybe future build.
    thinking of building a deans marine PBR cannedheat and fitting it with a couple of these jet drives.
