Some actual details would be nice... Motor Kv, hull length, abs or fiberglass, ESC rating, for example...

I'm sure it's a nice boat, but the video's are horrible; loud, blurry, not to mention the sloppy set-up of the boat itself, running way too wet...

Without actual info, it's rubbish as advertizing.

Regards, Jan.

From the specs on the website it is actually ABS, not glass, so they are really aiming at the Spartan market. Kind of reminds me of the SV27 shape, though.

It doesn't seem nearly as fast as a Spartan. That and it looks a lot like a rebadged Spartan with hobby king parts.

pompebled - Seems to me you are hitting the "nail right on the head"!

To start off - some specifics - would go a long way here . . .

Is Megacorp a company? The most annoying music possibly ever on a vid, and if you make speed claims of 50 out of the box, better post a vid of a boat thats doing 50, not 25.

If you google it and it doesnt even come up as a TT model or a place to buy it I would beware.

Also, when a promo vid has to try and rely on what they consider to be "cool" music, they are "missing the boat" to start with. The fake CF on the transom doesnt do much for me either.
