Being patient is a good quality as reading instructions, putting small parts together requires a steady hand and patience of character.

  1. Hey great site, I am into RC Monster Trucks but I am very interested in finding out about RC Boats. You are right about the patience part, Remote Control cars/boats/planes etc can test and push your patience to the limit, tantrums really don’t help. But when they are running right and you can sit back and admire your project, and drive it around, it is very rewarding and most of all, heaps of fun!!!

  2. You are more ambitious than I am. I’m sure with enough patience and persistence, I could ‘start from scratch’ and build a boat. But those ready to run radio controlled boats sure make things easy…lol!

  3. I’m pretty new to radio controlled boats.I like it so much I now have many boats and just ordered a flying boat. I have a blog as well. Wish I have the time to build one sounds really cool.
