Default Good Beginner boat?

Hello All,

I have a lake near me and I thought it might be cool to buy a boat this summer and go boating! Seems like a lot of fun. I am looking for a boat to get started. My budget's probably around 200-300. I'd like something with 3 cell lipo and maybe a V-hull, but anything else would be cool! I was looking at the Helion Rivos BL but with Helion's unreliable electronics and cheap parts ( In their RC cars at least) I wasn't sure if that's what I should go with. Any help would be great!

I would reccomend any if the Proboats they run very well and parts are readily available. The link below might be good for you as it is a self righting Hull, itís brushless, 3s lipo and @ $300.00.

Another piece of advise is to secure the deck lid/hatch or top cover with a type of clear radio box tape for added security. This goes for any boat that does not have floatation in the cover. It will save you a trip to the hobby store to order another one..lol
