I ordered one of these Class 1 hulls out of Switzerland. Aint cheap but they are sweeet. Our hull is going to be a bit bigger than a standard so we can fit it with a pair of turbines and surface drives.

I have a 1/8 Miss Budweiser. Kinda fun, but I can't tune it for sh!t. I've gotten really good at waiting for it to float to shore.

Got one of these this summer. Not nitro and the brushless motor is the way to go.

How go you like the brushless RC boat? I researched them and thought it would be a good starter boat. Went ahead and requested one from Santa (my wife) Can't wait till Christmas.

I have brushless Aquacraft

I like it a lot. Minimal setup and runs pretty well. Only had to swim for it once so far
