Question
First boat for ~$100 recommendation?

I'd like to get a boat to play around in a retention area behind the house...and play around at the flight field when it is flooded like a lake :-)

What can you recommend in the $100 range?
I am looking for something that is pretty much good right out of the box with no major modifications or fixes needed.

I am open to buying stuff from Tower etc but also overseas sources like hobbyking, etc.


I've looked at the following in the past, but never pulled the trigger.

AquaCraft Minimono Brushless 2.4GHz RTR Boat

AquaCraft Rio Offshore Superboat EP 2.4GHz RTR
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXXJS3&P=7



Thanks

I don't know anything about boats, just ordered my first toy grade just to check em out and see if I am interested. I have been eyeing this, but wish it were bigger.

I ordered this for now, it's tiny, but cheap and this version has lipo battery and 2.4g radio, which I will eventually swap out for a real radio and esc and brushless motor. But it goes fast for it's size and self rights itself so I thought it was a good throw around toy.
