Have you got a pic of the boat? Is it one of those wooden Chris Craft boats from that era?

Thanks for the pics. Interesting. Never seen one like it. I'm thinking it might be a commercial fishing boat, maybe even a whaler.

To op read the manual if your running a nimh then turn lvc off... its in manual..
So I've looked all over no one shows you how to turn off LVC saw one vid shows how to re program esc need some reader to do so
but did read the 880 that i have comes pre programmed for a Lipo battery and i have a NiMh so do iI need to change that to beside changing the LVC
