Thomas is correct about the weight. Razor3 is a 500g boat, Ranger is 350g, and Back Bay Nipper is 450g. An additional 50g won't hurt, but more than thatmudhenk27
Build your own? I have for five Footys. Picts on RCGroups of one build log that includes bulb. Epoxy coat adds minimal weight, but multiple parts heldjppom1
Too heavy. Should not be more than 200gr... The whole boat should not weight more than 500gr... Thomas Armstrong inthomas.armstrong
