Default My first boat, ProBoat Recoil 17

Well...since i started into RC that i wanted a boat.

2019, Now is the time...

A ProBoat Recoil 17...
(if i like it i will get a Recoil 26, and this goes to my son...for us to have fun at the lakes!!)



First thing i have done to it, since open the box was removing the shaft (which is a shaft, not flexible) and grease it with marine grease!


Soaked the Receiver/Servo & ESC with Corrosion X spray...



-Threadlock (Nail Varnish, lol) the set screw to secure the shaft (it will be removed every single time it returns home!!)... and applyed a coat of wax to the body of the boat!

Think now it's more ready ready to hit the water...

Video later! Can't wait!
