    Well, chaps...there's things afoot.

    Ron has very kindly offered to make me a smaller module for the Skipjack, with a single central piston tank instead of two which I have now. Now that will be a lot of weight lost and should make the boat a lot easier to move, which is exactly what I need.

    Stand by for further news...

    As soon as I get some photos, I'll post them up for all to see. This week, poor Ron has been decorating...'nuff said!

    Great work! Has the work progressed? Please update if you can. I was reading with great interest. Having just purchased a Moebius Skipjack I am keen to convert it to RC and I too share the disdain for the high priced US vendors charge for WTCs, etc.

    I hope all is well with you!

    Best Regards,

    Ben
