What do you do when you buy a new house on a river? You get an RC boat! I ordered the highly rated Pro Boat Alpha Patrol Boat right after our offer on the house was accepted and I knew we'd be living on the water. It's not the fastest boat, but it was jet powered, so I knew I could take it up the little creek and make some fun videos. The scale details on this are really fun and I knew my son would love to run it because he is a military history nut.
I'm glad I ordered it when I did because they are now discontinued. You'll have to check for them in local shops.

Like the full-size boat, the Alpha Patrol Boat is propelled by twin, steerable jet pumps.
Run day or night:
Seven working LEDs help you light up the night and add to the scale realism.
The included 2.4 Spektrum™ STX2™ 2.4GHz FHSS transmitter provides a clear, precise connection while the boat is on the water.
You'll love the realistic molded detailed accessories such as machine guns, dock bumper tires, light pods, antennas and relevant flags.
The highly detailed ABS hull features an abundance of scale accessories including a .50 caliber gun on the bow, m60 machine guns and a .50mm gun on the transom.
The detailed military trim scheme finishes off the scale realism
3 Working LED's light up the night and bring an extra touch of scale realism
The water cooling coil over the motor provides longevity to the motor
The 60 amp Waterproof ESC provides more than enough amperage than the boat will ever require, providing peace of mind and countless hours of operation
LiPo compatibility allows the user to use most any size 7.4 LiPo available
The 2.4 radio system provides a clear and precise connection when the boat is off the mantle and on the water
The boat includes molded detailed accessories such as machine guns, dock bumper tires, lights pods, antennas and a flag
