CEN Aqua Jet


Has anybody had experience with this boat? Any reviews out there? I'm doing a lot of investigation, so sorry about all the posts for those who keep seeing my name.

Hi R Hudson
Don't worry about the questions, that's what these boards are for.
The Cen Aqua Jet is a highly recommended starter fast electric boat, but I would only recommend one version. The key to this boats success is its use of a 700 series motor. Cen calls theirs a 775. This is a must. The boat then requires 12 cells (2- 6 cell packs), will run a very quick stable speed with almost no maitenance and will not require any motor upgrades. I would also say that the use of a good electronic speed control is mandatory. There is only one that is recommended for brushed motors. Almost all racers and a lot of experienced sport boaters have realized that the RCHydros.com speed control is indestructible and is totally waterproof (will operate underwater). Anything else is wasting your money.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the Plug Doug!

R Hudson, it is a good boat because of the mentioned motor in stock form. This will keep someone happy for a while. With room for inexpensive upgrades. My site has some of the available upgrades, they are cheap and worthwhile. As everyone knows I am a r/c boat video junkie and there are plenty of them on there also. The stock micro switch should be upgraded at sometime but I haven't on my three boats and they are just fine for sport running. I also recommended the Rc-hydros control if you do decide to upgrade in the future.
