There a similar size boat to this (self righting), but
it's super higher performance. Meant to be in bigger ponds and lakes.
I can't find the link.

It's almost 3 times as long, but definitely much faster.

Nope it's another brand that only makes boats.
It's the same mini size as OP..but ridiculously powerful. You can use it in a open lake...lolol.
Self-righting hull too

Hard to believe any 9" boat can run in a lake quickly, unless the surface was glassy. it would be like a full size Miss Geico trying to race in heavy seas.

Well, if you can find it again I'd love to myself. I'd like to know the "secret".

These boats are now available.

I just ordered 2. Both the blue and silver one. My fiancee and I will definitely run these when they come in and I'll be sure to post a video.

Just something I noticed, I was charged sales tax on this order. First time I've been charged sales tax on an order from HH. No big deal but it appears that sales tax on online orders is being pushed nationwide.

Received mine. Even smaller in person than i expected!
I am already in process of repainting (always have to do customizations).
A few observations:
The decals are included, one sheet, not applied out of box.
Uses a big battery connector for such a tiny boat, which i have already replaced with a JST to be able to use my many other batteries i already have (2s 500mAh).
There are actually weights glued to one side (left side where battery goes) i presume for the self-righting feature. Promptly removed, and cut off battery guides on floor, so battery can be placed farther over against wall. This engineering is ludicrous. ADDING weight instead of just using a bigger battery for better runtime. I also suspect theyve used the different connector and weird sized battery just to sell the batteries. But the standard 2s 500mah batts fit perfectly with the mods!
The TX is small pistol design that can be taken apart is 2 pieces, which is kinda cool actually. Usually i immediately replace the RX to use my DX8 or other Tx, but will try it out first. The RX is also part of the ESC, so that would need to be replaced. Which i would do also if i go brushless later.
Will give a test run as soon as i can. Not expecting it to be that fast, it is much smaller that it even looks!
