I have a new hull that needs to be reinforced and the electronics put in...so again if there is anyone in los angeles that is good rc boats and want to makes some extra money..

    Lyle, I guess I’m confused. You have some big boats there... Are you new to the hobby and that’s where you started, or have you always had someone else do the boats for you? If you’re new, then you’ve bitten off quite a chunk there. Most of us do our own work, I think for the vast majority of us, that is more satisfying then running them!

    I would suggest trying to do your own boat support. There is so much help here! Another suggestion is to go to some of the local races, you may find someone that could be a mentor for you... I hope you get those boats running soon, good luck!

    Craig is spot on here. I have R/C everything...air, land, water. Part of the fun with it all is fixing things/solving issues, plus you gain useful knowledge.

    Hope is a good thing! But you’d better make that boat look like an iPad, lol!

    i still have yet to use my Thunder Power Stator remover tool for an on road racer i have, it's the only brushl-ess rebuild-able Motor (Z3) i have.
    it's wild what these phones can do, maybe, just maybe they'll put in a polite manners app for these phones, have not seen one yet. HA!
    on that note, the "C" clip tool is most useful.
