A decent radio set up will set u back at least $300, so you will be up to $800. If it had a relatively new Zen 26 cc, preferably modified, then I would get it..... if it has a Homie.... offer less

Try this on for size http://www.rcuniverse.com/market/item.cfm?itemId=231851

"A decent radio set up will set u back at least $300"

I think a top of the line radio setup and servos will set you back $300. An adequate radio is certainly less.

$500 for a good usable well setup used boat is not a bad price. But $500 for someone elses problems is a bit much. If you consider a brand new 50" hull will set you back $300 unpainted it puts things into a good price perspective.

I respect your experience, but I was assuming he had nothing.... figure a PCM radio with throttle servo and fail safe $180, Nicads $60 - $70, steering servo $40, charger $40 .

I was thinking more "Decent" than a PCM (High End)

FM radio $90 (with throttle servo)
8 Nimh batteries and charger $28
5 cell Nimh pack for the boat - $10
Steering Servo - $35
Failsafe - $20

i also found another 50'' apache with the radio included for 650, i'm some what familiar with the radio situation because i have a shockwave already im jus trying to get an idea if 650 or say 500 or so is to much for an apache

Personally, with a homelite motor and no radio, I think it's not worth it. If it had a Zen or Sikk...... maybe. I already said that ealier. I'd offer $350.
