Default Stock NQD hydroplane, used, only $100

Why are there so many scammers in this world?

Battery lasts for 2 minutes.
Said it was originally $200. (Try ~$60 new)

Garbage like this pops up way too much. I hope there aren't too many fools that fall for it.

There's someone selling one of those Dolphin tunnels, still claiming the 50-60 mph, right here in RCU...

The uninformed will always buy something that looks good but is garbage..

Mark, we'll see how long that ad lasts as I just reported it to John. The 50-60 MPH claims are outright lies. You know it and I know it.

Ron,

I reported it last night and CC'd the seller.. This is the second one I've spotted being sold on RCU. The other didn't last long either. Figure it may take a bit seeing how small the RCU community is

That boat is an outrageous price in the first price

And as you guys said...
its real speed is about 20.

We've got threads galore on that heap. Maybe my "influence" with the Marketplace Mod might help. John's a good guy, we've met.
I've seen too many people that have bought those, a few of them kids who saved their lawn mowing money to get one and got ripped off.

Nothing is going to happen to the Dolpin seller..


From John: "The speed stated, and other specifications listed, are those provided by the manufacturer of the model. A quick search for this model on the internet finds the majority of retailers listing identical specifications, including the speed. Given that the model is NIB, it does not appear the seller is trying to deceive anyone, he is only repeating the manufacturer claims.

Thank you,
John
RCUniverse.com"


A quick search on any chat site will tell anyone that the MFG is full of garbage with the stated speeds..
