One of my most thrilling RC experiences!! Pictures

I'm on vacation in FL this week. My grandparents live on a lake, so I thought it would be fun to mess around a bit with my Barbwire XL. Running circles around the fishing boat, and running with and jumping the boats wake has proven to be one of my biggest RC thrills!
When I got this boat, I initially wanted the Voracity, but that would have been a bit more than I was comfortable with spending. I guess this will make it till I get that one!

Looks like fun! The barbwire is probably the better choice for that kind of boating anyways, glad you're having fun!

I agree. At least if you flip the self-righting XL on a wake, you won't have to go back for it.

I tried to do that on a fishing trip in September, but the steering servo had failed before I could run it. My first lesson in waterproofing stuff

Nice video, looks fun. That is the exact kind of rc fun I would enjoy. Is the Barbwire XL the ultimate wake/ wave jumping boat? Give or take $100.00or so...
