I reckon 2nd form the right will win. Being lower slung it will be more stable with greater manouverability... cool

They all look like the Chinese RTR models that were on the market in the last few years.

Neat idea, using a stroller to move your boat. I usually have to park more than 100m (300ft) from the pond. Carrying the (light) fast-electric and spare batteries/TX/...  is already something. I can't imagine doing this with my Odin tug (which will probably be around 40+ pounds).

My Guess is 1st from the left as steering is in the rear with no forward steering it will track alot easier and take less control from the Captian so he can concentrate more on getting to the finish line .
