New to RC Boating, looking advice

Long time rc heli, car, truck, and UAV guy here. Just saw a Traxxas Spartan and going to pick it up today from my local hobby shop. I know with each facet of the hobby there are new things to learn, things to avoid, etc... Are there any threads out there with good beginner information? If not I'd appreciate any advice, warnings or knowledge anyone would like to take the time to share.

Hi Jax,

I assume you've done some reading up on the Traxxas Spartan...

In my opinion, buying that boat is one of the things you should avoid.
For that kind of money there are much better boats available (unless you get a 50% discount on the Spartan).

Regards, Jan.
