FT What Did You Do RC Today : Caution Offtopic At All Times

Oh I bet that'll hold. All the impacts just might soften the foam underneath. (y)
Actually that run was a good torture test for the structure and the pontoons. Remember the front pontoons they are solid foam, I used that expanding foam and filled them and the rear float is 3 layers of 1" pink foam laminated together . But that melted/frozen rough snow was just shredding the foam especially the rear float, the front had tape on the bottom so it protected them pretty good but it was coming off.

pulled my old team associated RC-18B from the corner and decided to get it running again. new brushless system should give it some kick. waiting on new sealed bearings all around and a new front drive spline.

me :cool:
I have an RC-18C, I actually fried that same ESC a few months ago trying to run 3s through it. To my credit I didn't have any other battery to use, but it was fun while it lasted.
