new to rc boats, need help!

hi
i just bought a rc batboat on ebay to have a play with.

advertised as -
Welcome to my Auction for a custom high speed RC boat 30ich

This was a NQD HIGHWIND it's now been modified to run a centre prop and rudder by Groupner this means that it can now take after market motors.
It's has a 9.8v Hurricane 650 motor fitted and a futaba s3003 servo fitted as well.
all it will need to get it up and running is an ESC , battery and TX/RX

ok so the tx/rx bit im guessing is any cheap remote control and reciever?
the motor fitted i cant find any info on google on but i assume i need a 9.8v 650mah nicad or lipo?
the ESC is whats really got me stumped, can anyone tell me what i need and where i can get it from to get this rig up and running cheap ass poss.

many thanks

You have some good RC guys in Guernsey talk to the guys at the pond !! Looks like a toy boat you have there but with a Brushless Lipo setup it might work.
Check out Hobbyking.
Jack falla was selling his RC boat he may be able to advise !!
