Default RC Batboat on E-bay

Ran across this on ebay, item 3165589355

Looks pretty cool. Anyone ever see\run one? I'd bid on it, but don't want to deal with the shipping from Honh Kong hassle.

Sorry no link....I can't get to ebay from my work computer...maybe some kind soul could post it.

C_Spray has one all decked out like his real one. I personally never saw it run but it is way cool looking.

They run relatively good, we have a 24 and a 28, but have not had time to get either in the water.

There are models of the 24' Reindl and the 28' Rain-X boats available through Graupner. I have both, but have not built the 28 yet. You can try Hobby-Lobby in Brentwood (Nashville), TN. They are the importers. You can also try Chris Fine at Fine-Design RC . I know that he picked up some of the 28's a while back. If they don't show up on the web sites, call them. VERY nice lamination work.
