A friend of mine that's into RC stuff sent me this link. Check out the video if you have a chance. Looks pretty fast, and a hell of a lot of fun. For the sale price, I may order one to play with, and one to have with no engine just to display on my desk.

It says they can do some custom stuff as well, but whoever you have paint it to match your boat, can probably remove the canopy to make it look more like your windsheild.

Just for comparison, here's another company that makes them as well. I stopped bidding on a couple of theirs at $1,000 with NO engine on Ebay, so this other one looks like a great deal in comparison, especially being fiberglass. I think it sold for $1,500+ if I remember.

That is a decent price for something like that. I have the ones with Zenoa's in them, but I am really coming around to the electrics.

Sure does HOP a lot when you shove the sticks down all the way. Might need to fab some trim tabs for it.

I am putting that on my christmass list.

I bet you can find them on alibaba.com

FYI - I found some tabs on E-bay for my sons supervee, I think they were $30.00 +/-. Aluminum and adjustable.

Where is the link to those? I was telling someone about them the other day and couldn't find the link.

Yeah, they're cool, but how much is insurance?


It sure would be embarrassing to get beat by a CatKiller model.
