is this boat good for intermediate rc boaters cuz I had a brushed rc boat from jay car that went 24 kilometres an hour and that's way to slow for me. answer me plz!! *) *)

this boat is very fast on 3s batteries. careful on your first run... it will flip if it gets enough air under it. i'm using a 3s 5000mah hardcase battery on velcro for trim adjustment. had to reposition the battery forward to keep the bow of the boat in the water. it also turns on a dime!

3 thumbs up!
Great boat , hull thin,light ,strong.The outboard made from plastic with flex drive and 4mm shaft and 2 bearing .The esc heat too fast cause it draw to much amp. The prop is might be too big. If not reduced the prop size or just go with a turnigy 120a esc , it could run on 11.1-14.8v ,with out worry.It handle very good but the servo is kind of weak and noisy.Servo need more torque if you wanted to mod it.I had put Ammo brushless motor on stock outboard with 120a turnigy esc,lipo 14.8v and octura x640. It's flying and needs more weight in the front and adjusted the AOA

Hi! I'm The3PK. Just received hornet today it more valuable comparing to the price. Outboard is brushless size 380L, it's not 540 size but fast enough when used 3 cell lipo. The weakest point is water proof of esc isnot 100 sealed. I change prop to octura 3 blade 3/437 (Diameter 37 mm. Pitch 1.4) speed improved fascinating. The next run I try to setting outboard angle and lift it up a little bit for more stable while running in the water. Thank you the hobbyking to bring this stuff in your store and hope you are spare part to supply soon.
