It's not that difficult to learn, it can sometimes be a time consuming process depending on how well the prop was molded.
You also need to buy a magnetic balancer if you want to do it.

You really need to experience the Epic, My cousins have one (one of them is a sponsored wakeboarder) and it's just amazing. Have you seen one at night with all the LED's turned on? Beautiful.

Alright, I'll look into this a bit more. I haven't yet ordered the Power Vee, but I'm sure this would be a handy skill to have for any boat that I end up with.

They were both $66.50, and they both said "works fine."

One of them, though, said "RTR radio missing, Tactic 2.4 included instead."

So for $66.50 I got the Power Vee with an upgraded radio.

Good stuff.

My Power Vee should be here today.

Figures that it's raining and 46 degrees outside!!




***EDIT***

It arrived!!! I'll start a new thread with some pictures, and then update that as I use the boat.
