Custom RC jet boat


I custom built this remote controlled jetboat for selling. Need to sell quick**** I'm loosing lots of money at this point, your gain.

These are the most fun rc boats out there. No prop hanging down, so you can take them to the beach, creek, river, rocky shoreline, pond, anywhere that has 3 inches of water. Check out all the YouTube videos of these things. Search "tear into rc jetboat".

It has only been used for test to make sure everything works well.

It's ready to run including a 2.4ghz radio and receiver, brushless motor and esc and the lipo battery(4000mah 40C 2 cell lipo = loads of run time) + charger.

Everything is basically waterproof/ water resistant. The servo might give you trouble if you completely submerged it, but they are very cheap to buy. Its a cheap hobbyking servo and it has been very twitchy since i got it. May want to replace that down the road.

Comes with every single thing you need.

You can not buy these boats rtr, you buy the hull and then put electronics in and modify it for the electronics. Has a full jet tapped water cooling system for example.

Will consider selling as plug and play. (everything except tx and rx) for slightly cheaper.

Remember this is brand new, and hours of time went into it.

selling for $180 + shipping to you. This is a very good deal. I'm at $220 in parts alone and can prove it.

Runs great and has lots of power. Its not your high performance race boat, but it is a ton of fun in creeks and others places that no other rc boat can go.

NO TRADES PLEASE...

WHat size is this hull? Do you think it is strong enough to tow a dead boat in with a tennis ball and fishing line attached to it?

lengnth is 440mm, and i think it would definitely be strong enough to tow a boat in.

motor is a 2045 brushless 4800kv watercooled motor and a 35a watercooled esc. Both stay nice and cool with the high flow watercooling setup i installed.

I will look up the shipping price, but without tx and rx your looking at $160 + shipping. just standard shipping?

It won't tow it in too fast, but it will definitely tow it in! I've towed in an upside down stiletto with mine with no issues.

It's a bit faster to use the boat to get the tennis ball out past the boat, then just give it a quick tug and reel the boat back in with the fishing reel.

Find out how much shipping would be to Darlington sc 29540 USA and if it's not to bad like over $50 I'll take it. How fast is this thing and I will be using it to pull in my 58" Hurrican and 48" F41 and Ivan cracker . Thanks Lance

It comes stock in the hull, but it's a direct copy of a graupner mini jet unit. Those are hard to come by, but are still available from some places.
