Most of the plastic pieces have been trimmed and the electronics tray has been mounted into the hull with silicon.

I have soldered the my connectors for the esc and battery pack replacing the Tamiya connector on the battery with a deans one.

I chose to use a specktrum receiver in the hovercraft as it means I can use the same transmitter as I use on my cars. I have tested the electronics and everything is working perfectly.

Next I need to trim down the lower hull and start working on the rear of the craft.
