Systems maiden voyage

 First run of my new pride and joy, the Graupner Systems offshore catamaran. It went incredibly fast, almost too fast for the little pond. It will try a smaller prop next time. All equipment stayed pretty cool, even after half an hour of testing. It's powered by a 3060kV motor @ 11.1V. Summer will be great!! more pics here and a video here.

All electrics now installed. It's running a 3060kV motor @ 2 x 3s lipo for now, but might be changed to a 6s setup. Looking forward to first test run!
