Finally got my T-Sport Hydro project ready for finish work. Boat started out as a no name light layup semi-scale gas epoxy/glass hydro. The 43" hull over 2 winter seasons was transformed into a`whip style' hydro. Afterplane was narrowed and tapered back, sponsons skinned & notched for venting & tips were stepped. G10 sheet used throughout for mods along with a donar canopy from gas cat.

Power will come from water-cooled Scorpion 5035/500kv outrunner overdriven on full ball-bearing supported toothed-pulley belt drive for 40k at the prop!

Addl electronics will include Giant Power 10S Lipo, Fighter Cat 400amp esc, HS-645mg steering servo,
Hardware by Speedmaster, Zip Kit(Turn Fin) & Hughey .187 cable mated to Billet MACH 5 coupler.

Hoping to have some fun with it testing after it goes through the paint process this spring.

I post more pics after paint is complete!
