The Villian over the Blast. There are a lot of electric boats in this price category. For that price, you could afford to buy a cheaper boat then upgrade the motor, ESC and prop.

SAY WHAT?
30 Minutes AND 50 mph? Methinks your estimates are a wee bit on the optimistic side!

Just currious, how did you verify the speed? GPS, timed distance, running along side on a goped?

No joking, just want to know.

Thanks.
