One of the designers is in here, Jerry Dunlap. The problem they had was Pro Boat wanted it to look as scale as possible but left everyone else with the problem of stuffing everything inside. That led to a host of problems, mostly a CG that was too far back. They also with any of their boats is to meet a price point, $XXX retail, $XXX street price so sacrifices needed to be made.
Some hang onto things thinking that they will someday go up in value. Try to unload it on eBay and see what it goes far.
It's impossible to see if this is the 1st or 2nd version from your shots. The 1st version had the solid prop shaft, the 2nd used a flex cable.
