    HI I would never recommend any one to put spray cans in hot water or use a hair dryer just leave the cans at room temperature for 24 hours before using the main temperature is the air temperature should be a min of 55F if cooler spray out doors and bring in as soon as you can to a room tep of 60 plus I was a sprayer for 25 years

    I have to disagree when you say that brushless motors are power hungry I have one more boat on a brushless and get a longer run than with brush motors a lot of members in our club use brushless with good results

    HI this was my winter project the hull was given to me by my son who got it at a car boot sale it had been on fire as it was driven by a petrol engine in now has twin brushless motors with 45mm props but going to put 50mm props on when they come as it needs a little bit more speed Built from a set of plans this my first go at this as I build from kits in the past cabins made out of 3mm/1.5m ply and some 1.5mm balsa wood . Hull was sprayed and the deck and cabins brushed with enamel paint.
