    Default DF Pirate 35"

    Some pics of my new boat, a DF Pirate 35". I kept it simple on the outside, easy to fix up when the inevitable scrapes etc happen.

    Setup is TP 4060 1620kv, T-180 V2, 6s. First spin on the water 88 kph with a Prather 225 loose and wild with nothing dialed in. 85 kph with a X440/3 and a bit of tabs and stinger adjustment, much smoother on the water. Boat is for oval racing but I think there is plenty of speed left in it with a bit of tuning.

    How did you make the black side stripes? They look so precise.

    Automotive pinstripe, peel and stick, too easy.

    Very nice, I just finished my build of the 35" Pirate today. Tomorrow will be the first water test!
