Taking the fun out of driving

Remote control is no fun! (but probably safer).

Anyone know who is making the hulls?

No idea, but Darryll (limeydal) got a shot of the thing a few years back in San Diego if you search the NA forum. Pre missile days, though. Can't seem to locate the pic now though.

I saw pics of a remote controlled Willard somewhere but look at the lines on the hull in this pic:

Rafael have been producing something similar for a few years now and when using the "spike" missile, it will have extreamly accurate results!.. just wait until they show it being intergrated with ISTAR capabilities!

A few years ago we shipped a Revenger 34 to the US to be a dummy target boat. all remote controlled and very fancy!!
