A while back I saw a video clip of a couple of polystirene catermarans that wizzed around a lake, then did one and took off!!! not only that but the guys drove them across land too.

Have any kits made the shops yet??

Regards
Matt.

I've searched the web and found several different versions of this being built...I'd like to know if this can be built with a nitro or does it have to be electric to work properly.

You are talking about a thing called the Hydro-Foam. Various versions are now available and I believe Sussex Model Centre sell them. I ordered mine from Hangar1 many months ago. You guessed, it never turned up.

It needs a power to weight ratio of about 2:1. The electrics are about 450g but I see no reason why you couldn't use nitro. The electrics use something like a Park Outrunner 400, so whatever the nitro equivalent is.
