    Inspired by YouTube vid for next creation....

    I think this will be my next project with my summit... I've been considering a spartan for some time and I think this has motivated me....

    I can see it now.... A vid of a summit going through mud, crawling and going over flatland to drop anchor in a desolate body of water....

    Start watching at 1:20 to get the idea....

    Well I've Ben looking online for rc truck shells that may fit the bill and sketching things out.... The hardest part of this is I don't have an rc boat so I'm looking to see what's out there


    Some thoughts and alternatives

    1 find a boat a a decent price I want to use a spartan but they are costly so I may need to wait until tax season to get the boat...

    2 a spartan is about 41 inches long.... That one heck of a stretch....I have been thinking about making it a front wheel drive truck so the back end will be mainly a dressed up trailer and easier or load and unload in water since It can have a lower cg.

    Going with summit need to use maybe a flatter catamaran type boat like to keep the cg lower and so it closer to the water for unloading and loading....

    Question to you,

    Can I set up my summit remote to control a spartan and the summit? I want to see if it can work of one control just for convince. With the new tqi can I use my iPhone to tell the remote who to connect to boat or truck.

    Basically I want to tell the remote I running the truck so boat doesn't respond then using the on screen choice function switch to the boat and the car doesn't respond... If not 2 remotes it is....

    This will help as I think out my ideas.... Thanks
