This was a new one but he had taken the electronics & the flex shaft out so it ended costing me about the same as a new one if I went that way

I have narrowed it down to 3 brands of boats & my budget is $300 - $500

Aquacraft
Probaot
TFL

Are these ok for a first brand of boat I know that I'll be getting a deep v mono hull so I'll need to look at what upgrades to get as well & is that an ok budget

Very good
educate yourself before just throwing a boat in the water.

I ended up with this Joysway for a good price all I need to do is replace the prop & wait for my batteries to arrive

I do have a Min-Cat hydro for sale cheap with 2 spare props battery and complete radio system It's a green one and the only one I've seen in that color. I have no use for it as I'm not into electrics and don't want to spend the money for a Li-Po battery charger for one boat. I got it as part of buying a friends RC boat collection.
PM me if you're interested. As what I feel is necessary that the hull had separated from the deck in spots but I repaired those areas.
