This is my vintage 1/10th scale, new-built MRP Gentry Eagle r/c mega yacht that I picked up on Ebay in July 2020 for $193.00 USD. It's a faithful replica of the 114 foot, 11,000 horse power, 7 million dollar, 1:1 trans-Atlantic record-breaker driven to speeds of over 65 mph/100 kmh by the late owner Tom Gentry back in 1989. At the time, Tom Gentry brought the record back to the United States after taking it away from the Brit Richard Branson. Gentry also held many records racing offshore catamarans and hydroplanes. As some of you know, I'm a big offshore powerboat fan and knew that these boats existed for many years but wasn't interested enough to try to find one until I came across this nice example and they are quite rare. It arrived new-built in very good cosmetic condition with the box, a Futaba Attack-Sport stick radio/receiver/servos, MRP two-speed micro-switch MSC and the original three MRP Wizard brushed motors but was missing some decals and was slightly damaged during shipping. The damage is minor and can be repaired but the seller did give me a partial/$32 refund for it. I'm going to start running my vintage r/c boats with modern ESCs and ghz radios to avoid loss of control and damage so more to come when I get those installed. Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy.9 9 9 Triple screw, twin rudders, trim tabs. 16 9 11 7 8 Three motors in staggered configuration. 7 Two-speed, micro-switch MSC. 7 Mint Futaba radio - sold with my Kyosho USA-1.
