What’s up everyone,

My name is Jason and I’m new to Electric/Gas RC boating but I’ve been a general RC enthusiast for some time.(buggies/on road vehicles) A friend of mine got me into trying out the Proboat Sonicwake V2 and after messing around with it on 6S I just found that this was the hobby I had been looking for!! I grew up watching the Thunderboats/Unlimited Hydroplanes down at Fiesta Island every year in the Late 80s and always had a love and fascination for those Boats!!!

I’m 3 boats in now and looking to buy or build a scale gas hydroplane like Miss Budweiser or my all time fav the Winston Eagle Lobster 91-93.

Sonicwake v2
4519 prop
Upgraded TFL Flex
TFL Stinger w/Mad Lizard Mount
6S Powered


Miss Geico Twin Zelos
All stock
8S Powered

UL-19
TP Power Motor
ZTW Seal 200A ESC
Dual Cooling Rudder w/8mm Lines
CNC 3 Bladed prop
6S Powered

You can catch me all the time down at the Yacht Pond in San Diego… say what’s up if you see me !! I am 100 percent here to learn and have fun !!! Now let’s send it !!!!

Jason

Ye Old Model Yacht Pond.
Ran there a few times when I was stationed in Santa Barbara.
Nice pond with a couple-a challenges.
If your into building, check out ML Boat works for Lazer cut wood kits.
Not sure if there is a glass 1/6th gas scale available or not.
Or for different hulls, check out
RC Boat Company.
Welcome to the "madness"
