Fast Japanese SAW riggers





These videos are from what I think is a recent SAW event in Japan:
• .21 Rigger: 191 kmh (118 mph)
• .46 Rigger: 203 kmh (126 mph)
• .91 Rigger: 213 kmh (132 mph)

(Im not sure if these are the results from the event or if they are the national records)


Fast JAE21

You can find them all (and more) at THIS LINK in bigger size also.


André Holster Westerberg's own designs Scorpio .46

I think this is Mikael "Sunken" Sundgren's Daffy 21

I still have one of these Octura T-shirts

Think this is from an early world championships with eager racers trying to figure out the secret behind Kenneth Lundqvist's riggers

R/C Boat Meeting pics

Saturday August 12:th we had an small R/C Boat Meeting in our home pond in Oxelösund.

The weather forecast looked very bad with scheduled levels of rain and some thunder but we where really lucky and it was warm all day with zero rain!

Due to the weather forecast the turn-out wasn't that great but we where around 20 people anyways.
