I was wondering if anyone has tried to upgrade this model to use a 3Cell batt and compatible motor/ESC ?

Thingking of getting one but want to use my existing batteries.

Re: HK Swamp Dawg Air Boat upgrade ?

It would work but I would locate the battery a little farther forward than it's stock location. With more speed it may raise the bow and flip, can be a problem if your centre of gravity isn't far enough forward. You also don't it too far forward because then it may be harder to get on a plane, mainly a balancing act but once there it will go like mad.
