30+MPH Self-Righting 17″ RC Speed Boat – Atomik Barbwire 2 Racing Boat Running & Review | RC Driver

A boat! We love hitting the pond or lake with a radio control boat during the warm months, but it’s mid winter here in New England and it’s not exactly boat season. But when Atomik reached out to us and asked if we wanted to try their new Barbwire 2 17” Brushless Deep-Vee, well we couldn’t resist. We’ve had experience with the original Barbwire and it was a lot of fun, so we were really looking forward to seeing the updates on the Barbwire 2. The boat has a better battery, motor, prop, improved CG and some new aluminum running hardware. Top top it all off, Atomik claims the boat does 30+ MPH. So in this video we take a look at those new features and lucked out with a few warm days that allowed a local pond to thaw and we were able to test the boat and grab plenty of action video. Take a look!

I feel like the Atomik barbwire2 is a copy of the Proboat Recoil 17”

Self uprighting is just brilliant!! No worries in the ponds anymore!! That alone will sell more of these and boats in general!!!! Well done! Looks awesome too and fast!!! Wow guys just awesome!!

kymbo72 says:

might be a silly question, but how did u get the boat back when it blew the propeller in the middle of the lake? or what if the battery runs out in the middle of a deep lake? Also, what’s the run time you got? Thanks!

Rc Insane says:

Nice I’m thinking of getting this in the future
