About. freaking. time!

Looks like a really solid option! It's nice that it comes with a quality prop out of the box too.

From the look of it, it's purely functional. Looks like it needed the height for clearance, but if it was rounded more it wouldn't have left a clean tape edge.

I'm gonna agree with Scorp, the canopy and the windows don't look very appealing at all. Hopefully like the case with the Motley Crew the pictures don't give the boat any justice. Other than the less than eye catching canopy the boat does look very good. A 42x55 w/ the purchase and a rx ready option is a awesome addition.

Best we can hope for with the canopy is:
1) pics are mis-leading and don't do any justice as w/ Motley Crew
2) canopy is a "demo" and not the final run (doubt it but one can hope"
3) someone makes a better more cosmetically satisfing canopy

Looks 100% like function over form... looks wide enough to fit two 4s packs up front, yet is still easily taped down. I agree it isn't pretty, but it would be really easy to make a new one, especially if you only plan to run two 2s packs (less height) in it.

Not sure if the pack height will be a any issue. In the video they show it and in the manual they mention you can pull part of the battery tray out and it allows for extra room with taller packs. Really a cool idea. Until we actually "see" it, I think its gonna be difficult to judge and get a feel for it. Making one maybe best route. Might have to get Tiq in here and tell him get ready to make a new canopy lol.

^^ 100% agreed! I'm thinking about unloading my Motley Crew to get this instead (storage space in a 1 bedroom condo SUCKS). I'm torn because the Motley Crew is definitely faster, but it's almost boring to drive, it's so stable and corners so easily that it's not exciting.

I'd find room for the Motley before I dumped it............surely you have a 30" x 15" piece of real estate in there to park it. Under the bed..............on top the kitchen cabinets.................or my favorite, laying on the back of the couch!!

Looks like a good P-spec boat . I think the hatch looks OK anyway I think it would kind of grow on ya . It is very functional makes it easy for different battery packs . Just my 2 cents.
