That boat looks familiar.... With out question the best R/C boat I've bought. That boat floats excellent and easy enough to drive my six year old can drive it without sinking it. If your looking for a great R/C boat (PTR34) is the man to talk to...

Thanks it will do sbout 36 mph.nitro ones are funny to. But for the money gasser is cheaper.to get a good nitro u can get a gas that u can mod out and rebuild for cheap and fuel 1/4 cost and pull start no glow plugs no starters.

I agree with that terry just put gas and pull the rope that simple ! I've had the nitro ones and it seems you spend more time working to be able to use them. Who knows maybe I'm just getting lazy :lol:

I love mine, it took me a few to get it to lay down (not porpoise). I like the flat bottom but I'm about to attempt a step. With the nitro I run a .46 evolution I think it was $100-120. I took Cajun gators plans he offers on his page. They r puller style boats so it took some changes to get it to ride right. Slides awesome through the corners once u get the hang of the throttle/turning. I prolly have about 200-225 in mine. I can send u my plans . Very simple. 1/8" wood!

That's not bad then if that's all the $ you have in them... I will say the step makes them extremely fun to drive but its all in what you want ! Nice boats by the way :thumbleft:

I am interested in talking to you more about purchasing one of your r/c gas airboats. How do I go about contacting you? Is the General Lee in the photo for sale?

ptr34 has not posted on this website for a few years - you may find him over on facebook. (you can search his old threads for a name and cell#)
He'll cut your throat, baby, stick you in the back, drive off in your Cadillac.
He's more trouble than you think, he'll kill your sugar, leave you in the drink.
