Unboxing the iMPULSE 31 Deep-V BL RTR V2 Radio Control Speed Boat

I am falling in Love with Radio Control boating.. Nothing quite like a scorching HOT day and an equally HOT speed boat, soaking you with cool water as it zooms by, full throttle… So, I couldn’t resist picking out a few new electric speed boats – and one of them is the “Pro Boat” 31″ iMPULSE – and yup, It’s brushless.

A lot of folks like to see me unbox my new Rigs – so, in true RC ADVENTURES style.. I slap it up on the bench – and tear into the new boat! I gotta say – this boat is impressive to look at right from the start. It looks fast, just sitting on the table.

I know a lot of people will want info on the specs and overview – here is a link to the Horizon Hobby product page: http://bit.ly/1xY9z0A
