    Default new bristolbay captn.

    Hi guys newbie here from hawaii

    I know nothing about rc boat
    but when I saw one at the lagoon
    I am hooked like a big marlin fish

    Once I got home I searched for rtr scale boat
    well I end up at towerhobbies
    I saw the bristolbay for 200 bucks rtr
    I figured ill start with a low budget since I am new to rc boats

    When I ordered it I got it shipped out by usps wth.
    Big mistake I thought it was ups

    made the order aug7.
    I used the tracking number and its still in nevada

    Not happy not happy at all

    any way I really like the scale look of a boat
    Specialy those centuries old looking boats
    While browsing for boats
    One in particular is a bangka
    its just like a canoe but the bangka
    has two rigger one on each side lol
    I dont know how else that type of boat will tip over
    its just like a bike with training wheels on it

    Like I said above I know nothing about rc boat
    This bristolbay will be my first boat ever
    and for sure not going to be the last one :)

    Is there anything I should know about this boat?
    How to maintain this type of boat?
    I know this boat didnt come with battery
    what type of battery to get for the longest run time?

    I have heard of lipos battery
    but I read somewhere that this boat cant use lipo
    and im not going tear it apart just to use lipo
    For now I just need a plug and play battery

    thanx guys
    hope to learn new things from everyone

    Hi,
    If that boat move to fast for you than just try a smaller prop first.
    I think that would also give you more run time from the cell pack to,
    Do you know what size prop is on it and what size prop shaft it has yet ?
    ? ONLY IF THEY WORK
