I ordered the Ms. Geico AND Blackjack 29 ( they are the same boat hull with different color and graphics). Both boats were packaged well and look amazing! The included stand is packaged inside the boat, so stop digging through the box. The Blackjack's graphics were gel coated but the Ms. Geico graphics are stickers applied over the gel coat and began to peel shortly after use. The boat is FAST with 6s and handles great out of the box. I was concerned about some reviews regarding the hull splitting and unfortunately BOTH hulls split the first day (new Blackjack hulls are on backorder). Some minor repairs with Marine-Tex and I was back in business. The motor mounts on BOTH boats were loose from the factory. I removed and replaced the screws with blue loctite. The radio range is better than expected and V3 offers reverse. The battery trays are place appropriately but larger batteries are a tight fit. The stainless prop was installed unbalance from the factory but after balancing the prop and adjusting the prop height the boat ran flat and smooth even in windy conditions. I LOVE this boat despite some minor issues requiring novice attention.

1st outing, boat filled up with a lot of water. Found that the cooling tube was split at the exit fitting. Repaired problem and 2nd outing was great. Boat really handled well & very fast. But on the 3rd outing, burned up the stuffing & stuffing tube. Found that the motor mount came lose from the floor mount causing major flex shaft misalignment, resulting in the damage to the flex cable, stuffing & stuffing tube.

BUY THIS BOAT! A+++++++ Great Boat! Great fiberglass hull. Great paint job and trim scheme. Motor and esc are a nice blue color. There are battery tray's and strap's on this version which make it way easier and faster to get out onto the field. It has a compartment tray that all the electronics go on and motor mount. It looks like it will only take small lipos in the pictures, and once you receive it, but it actually can take decent size ones. Your best bet would be Traxxas lipos for a very easy fit or generally around that size but you can also fit a Venom lipo in there. I cant think of any 3s lipo that wont fit it. I personally put in the Dynamite Reaction 3s 5000mah 50c lipos. Great Lipo's with a 3c charge rate. Again if you like fast, good looking, well rounded fiberglass boats then this is your choice. GREAT JOB PROBOAT YOU GUYS ARE ON TOP OF THE BOAT GAME AND IT SHOW'S!! THE ESC IN THIS BOAT IS A HOBBYWING ESC.IT CAN HE PROGRAMMED BY HOBBYWING PROGRAM CARD OR BY TRANSMITTER BY LOOKING UP SEAKING ESC MANUAL.!! VERY VERY CERY FAST AND STABLE BOAT!!
