Oh, and it came with mechanical speed controller, different motor and reduction gears. All the stuff in yours is homemade.

Hi; The name of this little boat is Scimitar Speed and the factory is Graupner. It was my first radio controlled boat in 1991 and I still have it.
Anyway the speed controller in it, it isn' t original.
As per instruction, it needs of a eight cells battery (side by side) pack and a speed 600 motor for 28 Kmh of speed. Hope that helps. Regards. Gianluca

I think this is a graupner fron aerly 80' , original boat was a Glastron.You had a beautifull picture in the enourmous Graupner catalogue where it was on a trailer behind a same scale Range Rover.I think the result will be nice with a Pajero, a Wrangler an Isuzu or a Honda CRV.Cheers

Hi, I had one of these in the 1980's whilst living in Oslo and it was a great little boat. It's still sold today, as a Robbe Katja, Model Number 1020. The robbe website has a pdf fact sheet about it. Cheers Tamiyawales
