Default A new boat newbie

After flying airplanes for 15 years and wanting to try a boat for all those years,I've finally moved to a place where there is a lake right by my house, so today I went and got myself a ProBoat 1/12 Miss Budweiser. I'm really hoping that this thing really is rtr and I won't need any mods before I can use it. I have read some stuff about some of the mods you guys are doing to the boat,my only question would be is do I need to do any of these mods before I can actually use the boat? I am planning on getting myself a metal prop for it,since even the guy at the LHS said the plastic ones just dont cut it.

You're better off doing the mods now than ruining your radio equipment and having to replace it. Do a search in here on the Miss Bud, you'll find pages galore of info on it.

Well I ran it today without any problems.I kept checking the radio compartment after each run and it stayed dry the whole time. Overall,from a boat newbie's point of view this thing was awesome. I ran 2 quarts of fuel through it without a hiccup. The motor ran great right from the beginning and is really starting to make some power. I do plan on getting a metal prop and probably a stronger,faster rudder servo cause it feels sluggish to me. But other then that I couldnt be happier with it.

Did you get lucky and get the flex shaft version or unlucky and get the solid shaft version?

Why is it unlucky to get the solid shaft as opposed to the flexshaft version?
