Question
Help

Hi I've been flying R/C planes now for a while and thought I'd have something for the local lake (boat obviusly) here are the specs

Preferably Nitro love the sound power and smell
reletivly fast (25+ mph)
Cost is everything!

Any help would be appreciated.

Here are some things to consider about the lake.
Is it privately owned? Do you have the owner's permission?
Is it in a city or county park? Do they allow use of gas or nitro powered boats? Some city/county parks don't allow gas or nitro powered boats because of the noise, speed, and possible oil slick (however small).
Are there other people who use the lake for other activities like swimming or fishing?

Once you've got all those sorted out have a look at the Cen Aqua Jet or Traxus Villain.

Nitro Hammer or the Aqua Jet, both good choices.
