I always told OSO Steve that we should have a full blown RC Poker Run in the big canal behind his house. We could have out "card stops" on the other neighbors docks with Barbie dolls and $hit.

Take a ton of pics and make it a yearly OSO event.

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.

photos of some of my big ones.

60" thunder cat with 40cc Polini two stroke
43" Active Cat with 23cc Zenoah two stroke
57" Deep V with 33cc MHZ two stroke

then there are five or 6 small ones 33" and less with various nitro engines.

Fastest to date is the 60" cat that at 46 mph(gps) looks like it is barely moving while the 43" at 30mph looks like it is flying, also put the 43" into the rocks at WFO when radio signal "glitched" once.

Favorite is a 33" tunnel hull with K & B 7.5cc Nitro outboard that can run full throttle all the way around an oval. 29,000 rpm running nitro got the police called when done for the 5 min the tank of fuel would last. Old work buddy built it on a carrier during 'nam. He started it when he got back home in his bath tub, what a smokey mess that was, it instantly went to full throttle (he did not have a radio attached), and emptied the tub onto the walls, ceiling, and floor in just a few seconds. He was so freaked out he never tried to finish it. I got it 20 years later and only had to put a new prop on it and install a radio and all the linkage. The new versions of this on the "pro circuit" run about 75 MPH on the oval coarses.

Haven't had time to touch them since moving to SWFLA. I miss being able to walk down to the lake, stand in waste deep water and shoot some rooster 10' in the air.
