Well on my second run with my jet bout,about 3 minutes out while the jet boat was way out there,the stearing servo died.Doing donutes way out by the logs.The lake was like 68 it was a great swim.
So then I went back to the campsite and plugged the battery into my crawler and started on the root climb,and 2 minutes in I broke a drive shaft:mad: packed up the rc stuff and went swimming with the kids.
Fishing sucked too due to how warm the lake was.The weather was awsome,the people were great and the swimming was great to.
Had a blast with the kids.
Put the new servo in last night and did a windshield mod:biggthumpup:

I left all my RC home when I went camping - and still hardly had time to play with the kids! Setting up/shoring up for bad weather/packing up - takes too much time when it's rainy!

Evil looking bug, shoulda kept him, he could be your boat driver.

I like the supercharger, did you glue it on or is it just for the pic?

Ya that landed on one of my kids and the Screamed like I never hear her scream before.I grabbed it off my kid and stuck it on the tree.
The supercharger is not quite the right scale,but until I find the right scale it's Double sided taped on for now.

I'll have to post some pics of that eh.Gonna have to waterproof the new servo and re waterproof the receiverthen time to test how well the windshield deflects the water away from the front inside of the boat.Video to follow shortly.
