    Default NexGen EP1 P-Hydro and P-Ltd Hydro

    These are some pics of my NexGen EP1 P-hdyro. This is the kit developed by Mark Grim and Charlie Mason from Huntsville, AL. The kit is available in 2 varieties: a P-Limited intended for 36x60mm motors and a P intended for slightly longer motors. The only difference between the two kits is the cut-out of a second bulkhead in front of the motor to allow for a longer motor in the P kit. The kit builds similar to a JAE and is easy to glue together with some basic skills. I built mine with a different motor mount and opted to put the steering servo in the baitbox. I am running a TP 40mm motor with a Castle X8S water cooled controller and a Promodeler DS205BLHV servo. The cowl shown in an optional fiberglass single piece cowl also available on the website.

    NexGen website where you can buy these kits is here: https://www.nexgenpmb.com

    I got to test this for the first time at the Valdosta TT and was impressed by the performance directly from the build sheet. 10 second laps were pretty easy to click off with a 44mm 1.6 pitch ratio prop without pushing the power system very hard at all. A P-ltd motor would have no problems running almost as quick in heat racing trim.

    Some pics of the NexGen from the Cincinnati time trial where Mark Grim set the 1/4 mile P-Hydro record with a P-ltd motor.

    Howdy! I'm putting together this kit and I'm already confused on the first step.
    When gluing the bulkhead doublers, which side do you put them on (towards the front or rear)? I understand the placement of the doublers on the transom and the 2 bulkheads around the boom tubes, but the other bulkheads I'm unsure. It probably wouldn't make much difference but maybe it is nice to have the extra 1/8'' of room in certain spots.

    For the 3rd doubler I would put it on the transom side and for the 4th doubler I would put it on the front. This gives you the longest motor section option.
