    nice motor mount. Do you have any issues when using a cable propeller shaft when you run it in reverse. Does the cable start to unwind because it is turning in the opposite direction it was wound when manufactured? Len

    I think they do not recommend LiPos if there is no low voltage shut off is the fact that if you run a LiPo below a certain voltage level non-reversable damage can be caused to the battery. Len

    Here on Long Island, New York the use of petrol powered anything RC is prohibited almost everywhere. There is one exception that I know of which is a organization of RC petrol racing boats. It is a limited group and you must pay an annual fee of $100 to cover the cost of insurance that is a requirement by the town to allow the water to be used for this purpose. The lake is in a very secluded part of a public park with limited access and is patrolled by a park ranger. Len

    As jumpugly has suggested it is a good idea to apply the CA accelerator to the joint with a applicator instead of spraying because you get localized control and prevent spraying the accelerator all over and may premature setting up of the next joint next to the existing one. Also the fumes are nasty to breath and smell. I use pointed steel rod or tooth pick to apply the accelerator. Len

    As you have already been advised the door always opens outward. I also believe that the door swing should be such that the door swings against the direction of forward motion. This way it will not be slammed open if it comes off its restraint and causes an open passage for the sea to enter.

    Issac, for a good rescue bot and a fun boat try a Tugster. They have flat fronts and raised pusher bars. They are work boats used for pushing barges. See some excellent posts and videos by LewZ. Len

    Wolle I got a kick out of your joke about dike sheep falling over. There are some parts of the US were people actually rent out their flock of goats to people to graze and clear out overgrown vegetation. My cousin hires a flock from a man every year to clean up his property in Maryland. Len
