[Score: 10/10] 22"/500g skullduggery - slipway club 500 Capable of 12mph and a runtime of 30mins Single Propellor (2 Blade S Type 30mm) Direct Drive to a 500fc (2 Blade S Type) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) 5Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through mtroniks eco27 (15Amps) ESC - Comments: Got this as a kit last year to join In the demolition derby that Is club 500 racing. Thought I would throw a spin on It by having It carbon (effect only sadly) coated by wickedcoatings.com with a skull pattern roof all standard apart from that although I have fitted foam Inside the hull to limit crash damage and sinking and a clear lid to the hull for quick viewing of the Internals. I have recently fitted a camera mount and clear cabin to allow filming with a waterproof camera.

Got consigned to the loft when I discovered the joys of college (girls and alcohol) then a house move when I moved in with my girlfriend (now wife) It got a little worse for wear. Now I am 38 and during the early part of 2014 It has been resurrected and I am extremely pleased with It. Running nearly all action electronics P94, (will list more soon) apart from the graupner bow thruster which is on robbe minI 200, Planet t7 tx, r7m rx, custom lighting. planning on fitting a working anchor winch before the Heron regatta on Aug 30th.
