Suzie-Q Vintage semi scale offshore rc boat
A vintage semi scale offshore rc boat from 1965. Original design by Vic Smeed.
  • Complete redesigned in cad for cnc cutting
  • this boat is easy building a joy to sail and has great looks
  • Do not expect flat out speed, but it has great full speed turning capabilities.
  • Very easy handling, the complete superstructure comes of to replace batteries or for maintenance
  • it can be powered by lowcost brushless systems or even the cheap speed 600 series
  • Also low cost shaft and rudder systems
  • we used a 1220 kv brushless motor and 3s4000 lipo, plenty of power

Here's another video, this one by James. Thanks James! Very nice build.
