        I saw a demo at the NZHS Technical Workshop and spoke with the developer. I was impressed with both what he had developed and in talking with him, his knowledge and approach. I haven’t used one, but from the perspective of an onlooker and early developer of remote-control boats, I was very impressed.

          I had a day with Evan last week putting the new Scout version through its paces. It is a mid size solution. Max speed 1.8m/2 forward, 0.8m/s lateral thrust,  with angled thrusters

          We ran it on a stream with a maximum surface velocity of 0.08 m/s and there was a gusty upwind occurring.

          Its amazing when you put a boat with an outboard jet motor (40HP) on a pond to set up a line and suddenly Safety thinks you are going to kill yourself, then when you tell them you have just the right solution – it all becomes too expensive in their mind!!!!!

              It looks quite interesting and has garnered quite a lot of interest in our group as well. I know Surfbee has registered on these forums so I alerted them to this discussion.

              I do love that their remote control is somewhat waterproof…
