4 1/2 minutes run time on a battery upgrade,Aquaspeed motor stock prop.
There is a small clip at a pond in the end of the video.
Sorry guys I had no time this year to make a water race track that I was going to do but at least I wanted to show the run time thats achievable. :cool:

Thanks Arch,I have one but can't seem to make the time to get her out on the water.
Did you get one?
I'm sure they can rip a hole in the water too. :rolleyes:
12 Boats all racing at once is something I want to see! :D

I found these 2 videos online.

With someone commenting on a concern for overheating, I suggest sticking with the stock propeller.
