How can I say this w/o getting sensored.... The Spartan is the biggest piece of in electric boating. The Revolt is a "hobby" grade boat built by a racing legend, the spartan is a plastic toy boat that doubles as a BBQ Grill. Wanna run 6s.... bring some marshmellows...

I found that out fast!!!!!! LOL. You warned me but you know how we are, THICKHEADED!!!!!. I should of listened, BUT!!!!! I did take your advice on the MC and this is my go to boat. The spartan just collects dust and this new revolt looks pretty bad. I have only ran a few v hulls, spartan, outlaw jr. and the minimo. I am sure it has to be much better than the others. That why I was asking how this one is comp. to the spartan.
Thanks, Eric

I wished the Spartan would have made a positive "splash" and get some fresh faces on this side of R/C, but all it did was make a bunch of pissed off 6s speed chasing addicts (not attempting to be offensive). I had high hopes for that boat, but those went up in smoke (amongst other things). This boat which I don't own, but can bet my money on will be a awesome boat and by far the best boat in your fleet. Its still an rtr, but it should be darn goodone!

Boaters are nice people.
Nice video!

Next time, remember, a single shaft boat prefers righthand turns.

I like that also... I haven't bought an RTR in a while but man that thing is tempting. I still need to get my DF Explorer water ready... My money tree went bare and she just won't start growing again...

get high
Hey diesel, what's up? I'm looking at this boat hard. what should the top speed on high c 4s batts? A friend just put a AS120a in a MC and its running 6s and it flying. I need to keep up. Can this boat handle mid 50's? This boat is at the top of my budget.
I like the pro boat 31, but its not out till the end of the year.

Everyone check that your servo is glued down good. My friend's broke loose while running. He was able to get it in.

You won't keep up to a Motley Crew running 6s with this running 4s unless he also went to a much lower kv motor in the MC. If you were to run 6s as well it would be more of a fair race, or get him to run 4s.
