Thread: 1/8 scale hydro company’s for non builders

    Default 1/8 scale hydro company’s for non builders

    Is the only way to acquire a 1/8 scale hydro to build from kit. Is there any other company’s that sell a completed hull. I’ve seen H&M and have the 1/10 scale.

    RC boat company makes 1/8 fiberglass and carbon fiber hulls. You would still have to fit them out.

    Ok great I’ll look into that. I’m fine finishing a boat out just not building from scratch

    Justin, are you still in the dfw area? John is local and he builds a couple different hulls.

    I was just thinking, Phil Thomas also makes hulls that are around 1/8 scale. Check him out also.

    Beaux.
    Hydro & Marine also do some 1/8 scale hulls, if you are still looking for one.

    Depends on what boat you want to build. I have the Velasco molds. Only available in bagged carbon.

    Soo I pulled the trigger on a sg 118 from rc boat company. Any cg info on a already running boat would be great. Also looks like everyone is sticking with the neu1527 1.5y for competition sake but if I don’t plan on competing would I still want to stay in the 850kv range and a 4070 size motor?

    What's the price tag on that hull? You sell them?

    $800 plus shipping. Shipping is actual cost to where ever it's going. Plan $150 average.
