I really enjoyed your review Jon. It's been a lot of years since I first chunked a glow powered hydro into a lake. As I recall, the reason for the running start was that the "speed" surface props I was using had too much pitch to do anything but churn up the water unless you gave them a running start. I gave up on glow powered riggers because they were too finicky, the speed parts were too expensive for my teenage finances, and I found out that I could fly planes better than I could drive boats.

Now that I have a more "mature" perspective, it appears that the electric boating industry has caught up with my ineptitude and made a boat that even I may be able to drive and operate successfully. I like the Motley Crew!
