Default Venom RC Boats

I have been looking for 3 RC boats that we can run at the same time..
For as little money as humanly possible !

I was looking at the Venom RC boats, Like the Killer Vee and the Straight Jacket and was wondering if they had swappable crystals or were they no more then glorified NQD Boats ?

I know the NQD's seem to only come in 27Mhz or 40 Mhz which means we could run 2 but not 3 boats...

If anyone can help me out.. would be great..

(Must be Electric and 7.2 6 cell Battery compatable as my mates and I are low on income but want to have some sort of Aquatic fun)

Suggest you check out Hobby King. They have a good assortment of boats for reasonable prices and pistol grip 2.4GB radios for less than $30.00 American.

Good luck

That last link doesnt work for me...
Besides.. I am more looking at getting into RC Boating on the cheap.. I mean I already have a Cen AquaJet with a Watercooled ESC and Size 700 in it but it is too fast for the New area we have to boat in ...
Its not too big, just too fast..
Also looking at the 7.2Volt 6 cell battery specification as my RC Cars run the Nimh already..

Well after some exploration I found out that yes, they are no more then Glorified NQD Boats..\

They use the same electronics and no cannot be made hobby spec without gutting and retro fitting...
(the Straight Jacket and the Killer Vee)

So looks like I am on the hunt for the Reef Racers.. at least they run of more then 2 different frequencies...
