The Ripmax Magic Vee

Was just watching a UK TV show called The Gadget Show, and they reviewed all the top boats including a traxxas villan and a few 500 high performance boats. This little baby came out on top for decent speed, high manuverability and great fun factor. Had to show you guys

What do you guys think?

its pretty cool, but i dont think it would be easy to install a brushless motor.
but for a pool and small pond runner it looks good

oh, and in the video on that link, it looks like it needs a little tuning like raising the shaft angle a tad. it seems like its trying to push the nose down too much.

Yes you can replace the 180 size flat can brushed motor with a inrunner or outrunner. = )

Google is your friend there bud. I know Ripmax deals under the name of ST Models in some countries so you could try that
