    at last I took it for its first run on the lake and it went like a dream,can't tell you how good it looked lots of interest from others,its running on twin Emax EL4030/10 motors,two Hobbywing 60 brushless speed controllers and four 18.5 volt 5s1p LI polymer 4000 mah 35c batteries .what can I say but a really good kit from speed line models,would love to build the trent now but don't think the wife would let me go missing for another year in the shed but fingers crossed
