yes it comes with a radio.

Have a look on the first 2 pages, there are quite a few threads asking the same question, you should find your answer in one of them.

If I had to start over (again),I would go with the nitro super vee,as far as the threads on it go, it has a "gentle" learning curve attached to it, so to speak,and the performance IS there to satisfy your need for speed......

My first boat was a nitro v from traxxes. boat was fast and predictiabal but had some problems if you have never ran nitro engines it was difficalt to tune and boat has to plan for engine to get water. for a new boater a v hul is the only way to go! if i were to go back the nitro hammer I think would be a good one. this boat has a fiberglass hull resistant to fule spills and durable. cooling is a bit beater a low speed as well, down sides are short run times engine dose not have a clutch and has pull start verses the nitro v electric. the supervee 27 also would be a good choice as well. as far as electric verses nitro? fast electrics run times last 7-10 minutes nitro 10-15
mantanice is higher for nitro powered models.

i have both the NV and the supervee 27 nitro,,, the SV27 is in my opnion a far better boat,, fibrglass hull not abs,, larger motor,, stinger cable drive,,much faster as bob said it takes a lil while to get used to her,, but once you her her broken in and dialed right,,, WATCH OUT!!! it far more faster then the nitro vee,, and also less cash new,, $279.00 for the supervee,,,, i have seen the NV new in the $320.00 and up range,,, also the SV has a radio box,, not a perfect one but it helps alot well,,,, there is my two cents.. lol

It's your preference as if you want to go the electric or nitro route. The brushless motor has more bottom-end punch but the top speeds are just about equal.
