    Not built boat yet, so no idea about weight. I'm simply formatting a battle plan for the build, asking questions now to get right parts on order or in place, but thanks.

    So basically, the case runs from the prop to just into engine Bay, and so long as the shaft is long enough to go from the prop to the universal joint leaving some exposed is correct.๐Ÿค”

    Watch the Parkside web site, I Checked on Tuesday and they were not there then, so unless someone nearer you can go to a Lidl store at present that's your 2 options.

    Hello guys, 2 questions for today, I've managed to salvage an awesome RC 550 ex drill motor, however what's the best way to remove the gear on the shaft.
    Next each each of the power cables were wrapped around a metal ring, any idea what their purpose is please.

    On the Aliexpress Web site you can get a small humidifier for a couple of pounds, you get a small printed circuit and a connected metal plate, very compact.๐Ÿค”

    Luckily SLEC is a couple of miles from where my son lives. Therefore I'll place an order with them as it appears their prices are sensible, thank again Muskrat for the advice.
