    it does look awersome, however i have had plenty of issues with some of Venoms other stuff, that s not to say this boat wont be brilliant, it just might kick arse. They have got a platform of plenty on other great RTR boats out there to "learn from" i look forward to the reviews

    I saw the big version and it was well finished and sweet looking, if they transferred that quality to the 34" one it should be a keeper...

    Default king of shaves brushless

    my buddy runs a hobby store here in toronto and he said he has 2 on order which will be arriving next week.

    another buddy of mine is buying one of the 2 coming in so i will see how it looks before i consider buying one.

    i know if i do buy one the first thing ill be doing is tossing the cheap plastic props in the garbage and buying some octura props. should give it more top end for sure. venom claims mid 40s for top speed on 6s but i think you will get much more running some decent sharpened and balanced props.

    The boat looks really interesting.. specially with the twin brushless, I can only imagine how it'll sound :)

    I was downloading the PDF manual from the site. Did anyone notice that you use the transmitter to program the ESC ?, I'd like to find out if there is another way, otherwise you'd be stuck with the included radio...

    Please, those guys running these post your vids!

    Cool

    No, the ESC is programmed just like any other using the transmitter - any transmitter. Tedious but workable. You can use any radio you want, but FM or 2.4 is prerferred on any serious FE model. Actually the included radio doesn't look too bad for an FM system.

    I just looked at the manual again and you're totally right, you use the throttle to set the type of Lipo.
    Interesting thing I noticed, it says the boat comes with a 4 channel receiver.. I'm fairly new to boats here so bear with me... does that mean that a 3 channel receiver would not work then? I'd be nice to upgrade this boat to 2.4Ghz

    The guy at the LHS went to an expo last week and got a look at the boat, he said it was very nice. Much better fit and finish than the gas boat. He said he will be able to order in two weeks. My name will be on one!

    I ran across this, posted by venom on june 30th on another forum (RCU):

    "Working on it. To be honest we had a little mishap with two boats and it delayed our video presentation...lol The camera is in Davey Jones Locker if you catch my drift. We will have vids posted for sure pretty soon. "

    Mine is on order, the guy at the LHS happens to be friends with the president of Venom, so he made a call for me. I should know by the end of the week when it will get here.

    Well I finally preordered mine. I was planning on just waiting, but now that they bumped the release date back AGAIN, I figured I'd just prepay for it before I spend the money on something else.. Now im just ancy to recieve it. I've already ordered some 6S batteries and been looking at props and some 240A ESCs

    might wanna cancel that order for 6s packs- you cant use them- you need 2 3 cells. there is 2 different esc's one for each motor- one 3s per side. you could possible use 4s packs for each side. it uses the same 2881 kv motor that my head of the river df copy boat has. i run it on 4s and its blazing quick. but definately not 6 cells theres no way.

    Why not? The website says the Pro Marine 60A will handle 2-6 cells

    Just because its rated for 6S,,doesn't mean it can take 6S,,,Hydras are a classic example of that.
