Wave Machine: Pro Boat 17” RTR Power Boat Racer

By: Tim Gluth

While I've tried my hand at flight and tend to stick to four-wheeled R/C action, I have yet to hit the water with a radio-controlled boat. When that day comes, there will be plenty of options to choose from, including two new 17" ready-to-run (RTR) models from Pro Boat.

Decked out in replica Miss GEICO and Lucas Oil graphics, the Pro Boat 17" Power Boat Racers offer an all-in-one package to get you ripping up the as soon as you open the box. With a deep-v hull design and self-righting mechanics, these boats should offer plenty of excitement on lakes and ponds.
