The R/C Skater that was at the Skater booth in Miami was a Class one RC by Tom and Peter owns it it currently runs just over 100mph he also has the C5000 Mytics 1 of the Gieco boat you see on you tube that runs just around 100mph as well. Not too bad for r/c boats that cost in the $20,000 range considering the MHZ Jet-cat Spm-5 turbines are 5K each.

yes ther are also a lot of knowledgable poeple over at Jim's rc boat dock that will help you with any of your ???'s

Good luck with whatever you get

I just picked this up as a gift for a young guy.

I have no clue to date about the things to watch out for.

Has a pull start gas engine in it. Water cooled.

Never been in water.

Business client won it at a fund raiser.

That's a Pro-boat Miss Lumar Miss Bud Miss Elam etc etc depends on the Graphics. 43-45" 26cc stock zenoah 260 RTR boat should run 35-40 MPH. I have seen a few run not too bad for a "fun play" boat hydros in that class are running the RCMK RZ-254 evos or S-254 evos and with the JG V3 top ends and in the Whiplash hydro and seeing mid 80' low 90's. I have an old Hoover epoxy hydro with a V1 25.6 cc Zenoah and gettin 82mph oput of it.

Just watch the seams on the hull and be prepared for glasswork down the road nice looking hull but waaaayyyy underbuilt in the wrong places. I've had to do glass work on my Hoover hydro and paid 800.00 just for the hull but it's SUPER light. only a single layer of cloth and no gel but fast as H3LL!!! have fun with it !!!!!
