    Default Any RC Boat Owners?

    I have an older Traxxas Villain that I tinker with, but its a little big to keep on the boat. I've been thinking of ordering a ProBoat Impulse 9 to replace the Villain, but they are so new there isn't a whole lot of info out on them yet.

    What does everyone else have?

    lipos have come way down in prices over the last couple years. I couldn't imagine running anything else. I run a modified slow stick on floats and threw the power plant out long ago. brushless and lipos all the way. I buy my stuff the Grayson Hobbies on line.

    MRP Outrageous I've had since I was a kid-



    Not enough freeboard with two 6-cell batteries - even on perfectly smooth water... (not the first time this has happened either) Need to switch over to Brushless and Lipo.



    I grew up tinkering with RCs (RC10, Tamiya Hornet, few other scratch builts) and my son has the same bug. Others in the garage at home include:

    Traxxas Stampede
    HSP 1/16 4wd stadium truck
    HPI Racing Nitro MT 4wd
    Traxxas 2wd Nitro something + 2 more chassis/scrappers for spare parts
    I made a deep V fiberglass hull in HS shop about 32" long and had planned to set it up with Nitro, but 20+ years later it still sits empty.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    Cool stuff. Now is there something like that to pull a tube on a creek, so I don't have to paddle by the calm areas?
