    I was doing that back in the day. Not cheap though, if you want quality stuff. Here's a pic from the boat.... That one was an HPR06 with 2x Lehner 1950-7 running 24V each... top speed around 80-90mph. The paint job was $500 just for that...

    Must say I am surprised how many forum members have dumped money into an RC boat.

    Not really surprising, think it’s a natural tendency for gear heads, car guys to have been into RC shenanigans at one point.

    I've always wondered how you could drive/fly something as fast as some of these boats and planes are, now. They're so small, and they're moving so fast, I feel like it'd be almost impossible.

    Boats are fairly easy, helicopters and planes are another story.

    I always thought planes were easy to fly.


    Landing is a different story though, so I stick to a cheapo Styrofoam one lol.

    Check out HobbyKing.com
    Even if you get the boat elsewhere, they can’t be beat on accessories batteries and chargers.

    They can land themselves now... I really badly want one with head tracking, airspeed/altitude and attitude data in the headset.

    For the cost of something like that it seems like you could get a 150 for the same price and fly yourself around at a little bit slower than the speed limit.
