Default Begginer

Hey guys, I am new to r/c boats but I don't know which one to buy to start with. I would like to go nitro though. I was thinking of the shockwave 36? Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

The first and most important question is do you plan to just run this for fun, or are you thinking of racing?

i know it's hard to decide what to get for a first boat but if u know how much u want to spend, what hull type appeals to u, type of water ur goin to run, which u prefer a ready to run or u build(kit).. it gonna look easier deciding...for hull type there is V-hull, hydro, tunnel catamaran, they own different characteristic and set-up.

I am looking to spend up to $400, I want a V-hull, and I want it RTR. I will be running the boat in calm waters. Now for hulls which one is better for a begginer? I guess V-hull right?
