Sorry guys, no video but it ran well in its maiden voyage. Sent out rich, gradually leaned it in and when it cleaned out it began to really move and almost perfect handling. Time to bring it in only to find that the one of my throttle arms came loose and lost my shut down but just richened it until it quit. You all remember our boom tube discussion, done for the day, split my boom tubes good. All part of the testing shake down runs.

All smiles here, Allen Yuen looked worried, he has got some competition when I deal with the bugs!!!!

Woooooohooooooo!

My bad, I used 632 bolts, simple fix and all should be good.

Did some hot laps with it too, could run wide and wail and ran some tight turns and still ran well and didn’t complain about it. Could even left turn correct without any fuss. Still smiling!

Hey Greg what’s your strut angle looks pretty steep?

In haven’t measured them, I just eye balled them like most of my Eagles, my guess would be maybe 1-2 degrees, just a little negative angle. My first run was on a set of 1667’s cut down and pitched at 6”. Once I deal with the minor gremlins, the motors fully break in I
will push things out to the max. Once I get there I have a couple of new game changer props pictched out to 6.5 and just under 7. When I begin to try those I will check the angle more accurately. This is a dual ski boat and it’s my hope that will limit the amount of negative angle I need to tune into it, the 4-6 degrees you have your boat tuned to sounds like so much misdirected thrust energy. When I get there those answers should present themselves.

Depending what photo you are looking at, I had the struts loose and just hanging there.

When the booms fully split Allen believed that was contributing to that late run bounce, as for me, I was busy smiling and just driving it!!!!
