This video has been sitting in my queue for JUST THE RIGHT MOMENT! And.. as it's cold outside now (and the canal is drained) I think this video is a perfect reminder of how much fun Boating can be!! Yes, this is the Steamline RC Thrasher. I wanted to see what the footage would be like if I dropped the thrasher (which is MEANT TO TAKE A BEATING) into the fast running water and what the result would be. I loved every moment! But.. I had a surprise waiting for me .. or rather.. a RESCUE MISSION!
The v3 THRASHER is meant to take a Beat Down. This was always the vision of Scott Pennestri and his Son. Several years ago they had a plan to provide a boat that a consumer could easily throw into a stream, bash around as much as you wanted.. and walk away to boat another day! Well, I have never endorsed a product before.. but I was quick to say yes when I saw the new design. What an honour to have an RCSparks wrap available for everyone to get with their boats!
Self Righting even faster than before, a Power Bilge Pump that runs its own program to ensure that the boater is always able to PLAY without RETURNING TO SHORE! Genius.
There are different versions of the Thrasher, and like I mentioned we have the fully upgraded versions.. but I encourage the viewer to visit their website for more information.. or watch some of our previous videos about these boats. We have had a lot of fun over the last few years with them.
Here is a note from the Streamline RC Thrasher web page:
"Thrasher V3 is arguably the most versatile RC jet boat ever created. Streamline RC has put years of research and development into creating the most rugged and maneuverable jet boat available anywhere. Our patent pending jet drive system utilizes a purpose designed and built motor that combines the motor shaft and jet drive shaft into one balanced system. A hydrostatic polymer bearing supports the tail end of this unique drive system for nearly maintenance free, balanced, high RPM performance year after year. Oversized stainless steel front and rear motor bearings finish out this 1100W continuous brushless drive system. To support the power and resulting beating that this 12lbf thrust drive system can put on a hull, we have developed a three part hull system that can take some real punishment and allow for the bottom hull and the top deck as well as the hatch to be replaced independently. The multi piece hull also allows for easy access to all components for trouble free deep overhaul maintenance or restoration work, while regular annual maintenance and upgrades can be mostly done from outside the hull. V3 introduces protective replaceable "skins" with the introduction of "Bow armor" and the "Exokeel". These new additions to V3 allow for affordable replacement of the high wear area of the hull from stem to stern. Also new to the V3, is our new pump system which allows for all pump maintenance, upgrades, and repairs to be performed outside the hull from the stern; greatly simplifying any work needed on your Thrasher. Finally, Thrasher V3 offers 5 different graphics kits. These kits are extremely high quality and easy to install. These high-quality vinyl kits allow you to choose your favorite color scheme, and renew the look of your Thrasher as often as you like. With all of these features, Thrasher V3, will give the highest performance possible, easy maintenance, and an awesome look year after year. "
