The Eagle Hydro is a high performance Hydroplane racing boat featuring a full carbon fiber hull. This construction makes the Eagle not only lightweight but also very strong. The hardware is all alloy including the rudder and turn fin which gives you the race handling performance that you're looking for.
The Eagle Hydro comes with a powerful watercooled 70A brushless power system pre-installed, as well as a steering servo. All you will need to add is your own radio system and battery to complete the model.
This boat is designed to go fast, and that it does! Once up on plane this boat really screams. Be sure to choose a good size pond or lake to run this on as you will be surprised at how fast it goes.

The item was well protected in shipping and arrived undamaged
Required assembly of rudder, turn fin, drive shaft and soldering of XT60 to ESC. ESC and motor terminal were pre soldered.
The boat ran really well on its first run, although the ESC and motor get quite hot even using in complete stock configuration. The ESC became unreliable after the second run, turning on/off of its own accord and even going into reverse when giving forward command. i think it is a cheap piece of s$$t. I am now sourcing a new one. 2 stars off for not providing a quality ESC to finish off this otherwise excellent boat. Like putting a lawnmower engine into a Mercedes.
Bit painful having to tape the curved surface/edge hatched down compared to straight edges on most other boats.
Other than crap ESC, very happy with this boat.
