Was coming here to post the link and then saw this. Everything on my want to buy list just bumped down a spot and this moved to number 1!! Just looks so freaking cool and the price is good too. Would be fun to drive and be a fantastic recovery rig if you made something for it to push.

I bet it would go like a bat out of you know where on some hard packed snow.

Excellent job PB. Hats off to you on this one. Looks awesome.

This looks really cool and I plan to get one.

They claim it can run on 3S or 4S. I would think it would be almost uncontrollable on 4S. I have the Aquacraft Cajun Commander and even that can be a handful at times on 3S with the stock 1800kv motor and according to the specs, this has a 2080kv motor.

Really interesting... (Pro Boat Air boat).

Different choice of battery and on the snow it will be really nice to drive.
The shell of the Pro Boat, will be easy to protect it for the impact of small pebbles.
A sheet of carbon fiber goes to protect the hull longer and it slides well on the water, the short grass and the snow.
No matter, I have Pre-order today.
The scale is good, but I will add color and a driver.

Looks well-made ..... Relatively lighter brushless motor (vs brushed) is a plus........Price is nice .............Looks like a win-win here.


I see a little bow-bobbing at top throttle in the video. A small trim tab might smooth that out if so desired. No biggie. I wonder who will be first at hooking that gun turret to a servo?

Funny to see the rear gunner's position right in front of the fan (these Joes ARE brave!). The shooter stands between the fan ducts on the twin. Again, no biggie. Just consider it a remote operated gun (maybe rigged to the same servo as the front gun? Hint-hint).


Doggie tail wagging 5 times out of 5. Has to be a good one. Nice work, PB.

I have two airboats, and they both will hop when going really fast. I think it is probably the air lifting the front up. Then the weight of the craft forces it back down, then the air lifts it again, etc.

Perhaps moving the battery forward can correct this on the Aerotrooper.

What kind of speed can one expect out of these on 4s?
