I took a peek.....................looks like the motor and ESC are just a bit undersized for a 34" Hull possibly. I'm sure it will perform as is though, or they wouldnt have the setup that way. I noticed the large prop, 45mm if i understand it correctly.............hence the 3s recommendation. I would try it on 4s with an x440, possibly x442.

The ad says AM radio. I never seen an AM radio with a digital readout like that. ALmost looks like the Venom radio.

I have no experience with the boat, but if I was you, I would go to all the boating forums and do searches, or just google the name of the boat. You are bound to run into some conversation where someone who owns the boat can give you their opinion.
