Nice RIB, the Navy had the 4.7 specially built so that they could fit on the canopy deck of a Hunt class minesweeper whilst on fishery protection, had some fun times in the 4.7. Well done top RIB

I did have a little play and it feels like it really wants to go.I would imagine on yours with a 19 pitch prop you should easily get 40+??

'Twas a little rough last time out to fly when I had a working GPS and the times before that the 'new' Garmin was kaput. So I'm waiting now till next year to clock it properly. ...can't wait. I would expect 40 mph though.
