Question
Beginner Boat

Hi, I am looking into buying a rc boat but have no clue what im looking at and in need of help. I was looking at the Proboat impulse 17 and was wondering if it was a good boat. I know proboat makes some pretty good stuff but I am needing your guys opinion. All I need is a small compact boat that is fast, but not uncontrollably fast for its size. Any recommendations would be great. Thx JD

Hi Bassin,

Nice beginner boat, not too fast.
Will make you want to upgrade to brushless after a few runs though...

Regards, Jan.

I would go with the pro boat recoil or atomik barbwire, they are brushless alot faster than the impulse 17 and also self righting, if you flip the impulse you have to go retrieve it the recoil and barbwire will self right themselves when they flip.

What about the aquacraft mini mono. Looks like a good boat. Fast, small, and portable. Everything I like in a boat!!!!
