    Hi hot melt glue has quite a few good uses in model building but the main problem I had was with the glue gun itself....keeps getting blocked up and the sticks keep jamming....any solutions to this guy's ?

    Hi ...the model is scratch built.....don't think you can buy them...seems to be based on a gnat aircraft design with fins instead of wings and powered by a waterjet.......well it should be when I get it put back together ๐Ÿ˜

    Thank you for the video of seabreacher dave....looks great.... running on 11.2 volt must make a big difference as it was nowhere near that fast when I tried it.....its now in bits and I'm going to update it to 22volt and brushless with a 150volt esc ....should be fast or blow up ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

    Good point Dave ...seem to recall a 50 mmwaterjet by graupner did have a max motor size and a ic equivalent when I looked it up previously.....Not straight forward then.
