Default fast rc boat

for years ive had junk cheap rc boats that just wouldn't cut it.
finally I struck a on sale deal at amazon.....$24 shipped got me this glorious 20 inch ht 2877 boat.i aint gonna front.....this thing is really fast and agile.
scaleness is awesome.
as a bonus it came with a massive rechargeable nicd battery.
6v 800 mah pack.....which I think is what gives this boat incredible hole shot.twin high speed motors and twin turbo props provide the explosive top end speeds.anything more than 3/4 throttle makes me nervous.
id hate to lose such a high end boat.....trying to cure my need for speed.

That's pretty cool. I've always had the thoughts of taking one of the Tamiya patrol boats and convert them to RC, but the price tag on the boats have always told me to hold my horses.

I'll be checking on this one.

Ages of Sail carries a large number of kits that are either designed for RC operation or can be converted to RC use. Most kits feature ABS plastic or fiberglass hulls, while some classic ship model kits designed for static display or RC operation may feature plank-on-bulkhead construction.
