The Pro Boat® 17-inch Miss GEICO catamaran and Impulse Deep-V represent the true meaning of “fun”. Brought to you by a global leader in RC boating, the 17-inch Miss GEICO and Impulse offer a ton of fun and are loaded with features typically found in larger, higher priced radio control boats. Your only problem will be how to find more time to spend on the water. The Miss GEICO and Impulse come fully ready-to-run and include a pistol grip style transmitter using 2.4GHz technology, a Dynamite 2.0A peak charger and a 7.2V Ni-MH Speedpack battery.

In addition to their great looks and compact size, these models come powered by Dynamite electronics, using a Dynamite 380-size motor to provide ample torque and speed. The FWD/REV electronic speed control also allows precise manipulation of the throttle. If you’re looking to get into radio control boating or simply looking for something to do at the lake with your free time, look to the Pro Boat line of 17″ models to bring the fun of RC boating to your local pond or lake.

About the author

Associate Editor I can say that I’ve never done ANYTHING as long as I’ve been into RC. I got my first car when I was 11 and never looked back. Since then I’ve owned hundreds of cars and trucks and raced everything from Off-Road to Boats but I’m an Oval racer at heart. Whether I’m down siding a jump or going fast and turning left, it’s all on and my foot is to the floor! I love seeing new people discover our hobby and helping anyone I can enjoy it more. When I’m not racing or writing, I like to restore vintage RC cars and organize the Vintage Offroad Nationals. I’m also a dad and enjoy teaching my son how to drive and watching him get into this hobby on his own.
