I am interested in a Hobie version of this RC trimaran! I would put a camera on it and let it circle around my Hobie Island while it is taking pictures. I would like it to be a bit faster, and possible to take apart like a real Hobie Island, for easy and safe transportation.

Well, your boat is probably too fast.

If I paint the RC trimaran in yellow and take away the jib it might look almost like my Tandem Island. But it most certainly cannot take much wind and waves before it drifts away! It would be cooler if it was a real RC sailing boat.

For taking pictures I believe your boat is better.
