I have not bought an electric boat yet. I was leaning on the mystic 29 catamaran. have you heard of this boat and could I race it in the race? What would be a better boat for me to get in order to race in races? Do other people come from other states to race their electric boats because you said that you are the only one in ms that is in the FE club and the race requires at least three boats for each race? I just curious. I would love to come and watch the race and I will be there. I just need to figure out which boat to get and get everything I need for it so I can set it up and tune it right. I have seen the impulse 31 by proboat on youtube race with mods and it was really fast. What kind of electric boat do you have?

03-04-2012, 02:15 PM
the mystic is a good fast boat....the gas club here would put it in the open p class......id get a few 4 cell batts for it to have some weight in the boatif u ever go to a race that runs offshore fe boats it would be a good offshore boat also.....i think there are a few guys in mobile and maybe gulfport and i know houston tx has a fe club. oh ya i dont know anything about the impulse so cant say good or bad.....i do like my pursuit mono with a 4074 leopard 2200kv in it for p mono class......u can see alot of em on u tube also.....

We are inviting all listed electrics to participate. We are attempting to establish this race site for all boats.
If interest is there we are interested in hosting an all electric race as well.
If you plan to attend the April Race, please sign up on Jim's RC Boat Dock.


Thank you Ron for posting this info.

Last year a bunch of electric boaters attended the race including myself. We had a great time and those Mississippi boys put on a great event. They are very friendly and helpful club. The club, pond,race course and park facilities are one of the best!! Don't miss it!
