They're not a fast boat but a well-made one. The problem lies in that the hull bottom may have some hooking or uneven spots in it so check it out with a straight-edge.
Ask about their new motor as so far reports have been very good on it.

The Spektrum DX-3 part is what kind of scares me. Make sure that is has the Marine receiver in it as the regualar one has very poor range on water. I've seen them lose contact in less than 100 feet.
With the M-5 mod done it should run in the low 50's, any faster than that is when the handling issue start to turn up.
It is a great 1st boat for anyone as you really don't have to mess around with much and with the hull having a heavy lay-up it will take a beating from wake-jumping to hitting a dock or shore better than anything at this price range.

Here's your choices for a Marine RX, http://www.spektrumrc.com/Search/Def...arine+receiver.
The boat seems to be a good buy besides that.

Warehouse Hobbies has been in business for around 27-28 years now but the good thing is that this is a newer boat. It would be hard to age it unless it has a tag glassed into the hull with a number the Tony could give you a close estimated manufacturing date.
I wouldn't myself place it as being very old, maybe a year or so at the most as it's very clean inside. The give-aways are the motor and the transparent radio box, especially the box as it's only been out a couple of years.
Do yourself a huge favor and hit a store that sells pool noodles and buy at least 2 in your choice of colors. Dollar General has some big-un's this year where you can put a smaller one inside their larger ones. Wal-mart also has a good supply of them in various sizes, shapes and colors. The few bucks you drop now could save you a lot later on if the boat flips. Stuff all you can up in the front and run one down each side. Keep them away from the pipe and carb.

Tony is on this site so possibly he can give you better input than I can. Still, you got a very good buy on the boat regardless of age.
