Does anyone know a good one or a good brand? Better yet any company making a ski or wakeboard looking boat? All of them look like cigarette boats

I've seen remote control 'BUs at Wal-Mart. Couldn't tell you if they are good or not.

Got her for next to nothing from a freind, all it needed was some wd40 on the one way bearing which was making the pullstart not work. Goes between 20-30mph and is great at scaring the geese away from my dock.

Check out shockwave 36" Nitro boats great starter boats just make sure you have an extra drive shaft whip because the stockers are known to fail.

I bought one of these in the MC style and they blow!!! you might as well take a nap rather than waste your money on one of these. but then again I want one that will do upwards of 20-30mph not 1-3mph

Yeah I know I know....my daughter loves it though and my neighbors too. I use it maybe 3-5 times a year, big real boats are more fun.

I use to have an RC boat. It was 3.5 feet long and the beam was 2.5. It had a 65cc weedwacker motor. It was a dircect drive with a 3 inch prop. For top speed it did right around 50mph. I sold it off to a friend and he lost control of it and punched hole right in the middle of a pontoon. So that was the end of the boat I will see if I have some pic's of it.

Leave it to you Jim to have a creation like that. Sad and hilarious at the same time. I guess a fitting end.

I had a ProBoat BlackJack 55 for about a year, but it was just too big to easily throw in the boat and use.

It was loud, fast and fun as hell, though!!

That new Traxxas is really nice. I had one ordered back in fall, but cancelled for another purchase,

hahha, and he keeps going after them.



Don't get me wrong. RCs weather it's a car, plane, helo(I really want to try one of these), or boat are all great fun. I got to trucks for my daughter and I and we have a blast with them. I'm sure boats are fun too.

But when you're out anchored and just chilling out, who wants to listen to a weed eater running around for an hour? :D
