    Hi all I've managed to get the Slec Huntsman out for a run (vid to follow )
    Now I'm running a m4 50mm x prop pos to big I'm wondering your thoughts is there a brass 45-40mm brass x prop out there on m4 m5 thread or for the prop gurus what would be a three blade equivalent as the speed is spot on

    Hi all thought id post a video i did in 2019 of the Robbe pt 15 built in
    1995 and the Palacraft Griffin 500 built in 2002 both still as good as new the pt 15 is running stock kit motor 550 i think with 2-1 gearbox on a 9.6v nicad the Griffin is running an early small brushless outrunner motor with a simple 7.2 volt nicad both still run chipper

    What you could try is Tamiya do something called lexan body restorer it will clean the paint up and I think fine scratches but not sure on the glue
    The robbe pt 15 also has the same superstructure type moulding aswell not that that helps .

Not a beginners kit but not to hard some knowledge required as I felt the plans and instructions a bit dated and vague in places it has the additional white metal kit fitted .. new for me was the electrics fist boat for me that's Brushless and lipo but advice from this site has helped .I will upload a vid when I take her for a run
