I haven't had one but you might find some more info searching for the Mini Cat Racing Starship they look pretty similar.

They're good, but a little unstable in choppy waters. Get one from hobbyking and save 80 quid...

Thanks for that. Had a look at Hobbyking, they have em at 93 squid with hardware.

I dont see a turn fin on these, arent they needed?

Nope no turn fin needed, they don't slide through the turns like a bigun does... They're entertaining little boats, great fun, but they aren't fast enough to be raced. If you don't want to race it, see the fun part :-))
