water seems really clear and calm must have been a good first ride

Nice RC boat. There is a real one for sale here, but it has been for sale a long time now - black with twin SBCs. Bill

Look at Shea's (Glashole) avatar......that's his serious look. I like the 'Racing and Competition', that's funny.:smash::smash:

I paid over 24 for mine Nov. 2010

Lost her when some a**hole broadsided me with his twin outboard..

Don't know if I kept the pictures, as it just devastated me.

It wasn't insured either, as I was just too excited to try her out...Ed

How fast is she? Real mph and what you think scaled. I have a SeaPig that does about 5-6mph so scaled it is about 75 but in reality as it is barely planing probably about 25mph. I can run it for a LONG time on 1 charge, I am thinking about a repitch on the prop and get some speed and burn up that energy....maybe a modified motor out of one of my old trucks.

be careful putting a truck motor directly into a boat without marinizing it first

Good point but at least the truck engine is torquey compared to a car engine.

I love my 28 ZX Racing & Comp model.....but I bought during a BOOM time and it was VERY expensive:eek!:.....maybe its the Special Cumberland Marine Model.....it was at the James Town Marina.
