Hobbyking Swamp Dawg Air Boat

After I saw the Hobbyking Swamp Dawg Air Boat somewhere on the internet I knew I also had to have one. So I ordered, assembled and ran it. Unfortunately the rumors were true that the motor and propeller it came with is sh*t. So after some rides I upgraded it with components that were recommended in a specific blog (Link).

It now runs mega-fast and with almost no vibrations.
