Very nice looking boat. But I'm with Big Boys Toys, regardless to the size of the pond it does look like it is digging in and struggling to turn. I would think it shouldn't be struggling to turn at any speed, fast or slow.

Thanks for your interest.
I would say this boat made of wood so it's quite heavy in comparison with other plastic boats.
In static state, the boat quite sink in water. When it runs with a certain speed, the water pressure will lift the whole boat up. When I turned at a corner I had to significant reduce the speed (otherwise it will crash the pond's bank), reducing the water pressure too -> the boat sink down.
That's the mechanism of the real boat too.

I like your boats. Are you in Thailand? I have seen some similar boats on ebay, only not RC.
