Yup, I have been starting to think about internals and as nice as Daves Sushi is with a dry hull I think I am going to stick with my original wet hull idea. I've emailed Dave about purchasing one of his Kilo experimenter WTC kits with an RCABS system. We'll see how things go from there.
For the motor and ESC I think that I am going to try and go brushless however I haven't gone so far as to price it out yet. Price is a bit of a factor for me so if it's too much I'll probably go with a standard Speed 540 and either NI-MH or LiPO cells. I have a couple Speed 700BBs but that might be a little overkill!
I have a 4 channel Hitech radio and servos so I'm good there. I'll look at maybe getting an APC and the sub-tech xmix adapter but that should be about it. let me know if I've missed anything.
As for work on finishing the master, I have the sail to do yet, the forward dive planes and the x-tail planes to cut, sand and finish yet. Then I've got a few hours of work yet adding whatever details I wish but molding should be right around the bend.
Thanks for your comments Andy!
