Have one on order now - looks like a great boat for the pool! My golden retriever needs something to do while in the water - this should suffice!

Nah - she doesn't shed all that bad - more so, she's worth it. However, the boat will be as much fun for me as her, so who knows - wife is happy when the dog is tired, so both sides win!

BigGuyJT,

Unfortunately, ProBoat makes no mention of LiPo compatibility, so if you use a LiPo battery, you will have to figure out how much run time you get before draining the LiPo battery too far.

You can purchase a LiPo interrupter that can be soldered in line with the ESC - I believe Tower Hobbies carries this, but I plan on figuring the run time and just setting a timer.

Unfortunately, it looks like these boats are delayed again - site now states mid August.

You can run lipo with this just old school it and bring her in once the power shows the first sign of fading.

Thanks guys. I know what you mean. Lipo will work regardless. Was just curious if the esc's had lvc cutoff. But like I said im used to running a timer when I fly and I never go til I hit lvc anyways. I think it would be more for my 6 y/o so he wouldnt ruin the lipos.

Brushless motor and lipo's should do very well.
