I think these are GREAT - ready built  - all the parts - just add a cheap 'real' radio and a couple of speed controllers and off you go! 


Ideal to get you going and plenty of upgrade paths for almost no money.  :-))

Probably not so cheap real radio as it will need to be programmable with mixers to allow the boat to steer. There is no rudder and steering is by motor speed. You could do without the mixer by using tank steering accepting that it will be difficult to control.
