Well it could be but there are not to many rc airboaters that are willing to race.

Jesupslanding, you should come up to Ocala this sunday and run with us. We have a good time. I would also be interested in setting up airboat races that include running on land and the water. We should be able to do anything a real airboat can do. There is a place in Mims that we might be able to run at. I believe it is Loughman Lake Lodge. Caylen17, who has not been on RCU in a while, said the owner would let us run there. I will check it out one of these days. Dennis

Good idea, this one could be a good ground racer with some kind of spolier to reduce the "take off" at high speeds.

I really have a good time running my boat on the ground.
