Default RTR boat suggestions for gift??



Hey guys,

I'm looking at dual prop RTR boats for my father as an X-mas present. He's retired and has always wanted a boat to cruise around his small pond. He doesn't want anything fast, but more of a dual prop boat to navigate thru an obstacle course. We've had a couple of RTR nitro buggies, but that's all our experience in the RC world. Are there any boats that you can recommend? Electric would probably be the first choice, but I'm open to suggestions. Is there anything like a riverboat, tugboat, or even a military ship that would be good for a pond obstacle course?

Thanks in advance!

Aquacraft Harbour tug. I have one and it's perfect for tooling around the pond.

Do a search on RCU there is a couple of threads on the tug.

Single prop. Just charge the batt and go, right out of the box.
