I bought one each for my two boys, they are a blast. Video tape them from a boat and it looks just like video taping a real race boat from an helicopter. They run close to 50mph. Once I ran one along side of a ski boat with a skier like I wanted to race him, he floored the ski boat forgetting he had a skier. The skier had a great crash going about 60mph. From the shore we held up both hands giving him a perfect 10 for his wrick.
At the real boat races one of my sons ask what would happen if one of the boats hit the sea wall at 160mph.
A few months after he ask that I was playing with his boat. The boat went out a remote range at wot crashed into a rock bluff. I told him thats what the real race boat would look like . He was not amused.
I fixed it up and gave it a bad a$$ paint job and every thing was good again.
They are allot of fun.
