How does 70 mph plus sound for an RC Nitro Boat?

Front sponsons are offset for better handling in turns. Rear sponsons are detachable for easy change for race tuning and to enhance course racing. For straight away racing, rear sponsons are removable. This extremely light boat comes in kit form and features birch plywood and foam construction. Running hardware is sold separately.

Possibly more speed than you can handle! Since 1994 the Hawk Hydroplanes have been the fastest outriggers on the market. Designer/racer Gary Preusse consistently has the 3.5 Hawk in the 70 plus mph range and the 7.5 Hawk in the 90 plus mph range. Totally made up of racer friendly features, the Hawk has detachable front sponsons which are removable with out taking off the booms. The booms are made of composite fiber for light weight strength, and the boom clamps and split collars are machined aluminum. If you are ready to try the next level in racing you’re ready for the Hawk.
