    Sparten or Miss GICO?

    i really want to get a boat this sumer and these are the two boats that are catching my eye. tell me what you guys think. i see the rc nightmare boys have both, but no review on the miss gico boat. i also want to be able to run 3s, because thats what i run in my trucks and i want to keep cost down and not have to buy new batteries as well. so I'm also wondering if the Sparten is worth the extra bucks? and witch one hands better? witch one is faster? i don't know that much about boat so any and all help is welcome!! thanks guys!!

    Do you like the motley crew the best?
    If nobody comes back from the future to stop you, how bad of a decision can it be?

    The Spartan comes with a 2.4Ghz system, so you should have at least a 250 - 500 ft range. It may be much higher.
    You can run in salt water, but it will quickly corrode the model. It does not take waves well at all. It swamps pretty easily. A large pond would be the best place to run.
    The Miss Geico 29 Brushless Ready to Run Catamaran. Powered by twin Lycoming T-53 703 helicopter engines, the Miss GEICO is the fastest boat, capable of reaching speeds in excess of 200 mph.
    Well, I have a Miss Geico and absolutely love it.... also highly recommend you to buy this ......
