Miss GEICO by Pro Boat

I've loved the full-size version for a long time and have been really wanting the Pro Boat version as a result. I'm one of those that LOVES the neon yellow/green!

I picked my Miss GEICO up at my local race track hobby shop. My son and I race r/c cars and also run boats. We belong to the Indianapolis Admirals R/C Model Boat Club (www.IndyAdmirals.org). The Admirals have been a scale ship and sailing club mostly for many years, but in the last couple of years, the interest in fast electric is really growing. So much so that members run fast electric twice a week now on the east side of Indianapolis.

My MG is box stock. I plan on leaving it that way for a while.

Today is her maiden voyage!

Here's some of my favorite photos of the real Miss GEICO. She will be running at the Super Boat Great Lakes Grand Prix in Michigan City, Indiana (along the shore of Lake Michigan) on August 3-5, 2012. I'm thinking road trip as its only about 2.5 hours from me: http://www.superboat.com

Pro Boat has a new version (HERE) of the Miss GEICO out that will offer a larger motor and ESC. I don't believe that the hull had changed. It would be cool if they offered a new canopy that included the vertical fin on it!

Too bad that the real boat went up in flames last weekend.

I'd seen some other photos of the "flaming" Miss GEICO. Fortunately, they all got out OK, but man, what a shame!

Well, I didn't have any bad luck today. Right out of the box, this boat was a rocket! I used two 5000mah, 40C packs for 4S power. She did great. The motor and ESC were warm when done, but not too back. 110 degrees on the motor. I had four batteries charged and got two nice runs in. Didn't have time to charge and run again before we had to leave, but I'm a happy camper for sure!

A few water shots I took while my son drove. It was a windy day as you can see, but the Miss GEICO handled the chop just fine. It did one barrel roll off the lip of a wave , but landed upright and drove away. Didn't get it on film though!

Video taken also. Coming soon...
