Product Description

22" Blazingly Fast Balaenoptera Musculus Racing RC Boat is the fastest RC Boat in our Electric Powered Speed RC Boat category. This beast is powered by PC twin propellers. Power comes from a included standard Sub C 7.2V rechargeable Ni-Cd pack as used in other Tamiya cars. With it's vector-push design, it can reach a speed of 25+mph! Fast turning radius. Plastic construction. It has an operating range up to 300 feet. If it goes any farther, you can't even see the boat. It has a running time of 20-30 minutes. It comes included with all of the necessary components such as rechargeable battery pack and AC adapter. However it requires eight (8) "AA" batteries for the remote. We give it both thumbs up! Please note that color may vary from the image shown above.

This is a very fun, fast little boat. I am enjoying it very much. Easy to put together (battery pack, install the antenna mast (a plastic tube), and screw in the antenna on the sending unit.) It goes fast and is easy to control.

Controls are very simple, really just two switches: left engine one/off and right engine on/off. The control box has: go, forward on the left control and right or left turn on the right control. The left control switches both engine to full on (no throttle control, just full-on/off) and the right control shuts off one engine or the other (left or right), to turn. It turns quite tightly (without a rudder.) But by "pulsing" the left or right control, you can make the boat execute broader turns. It gets up and planes almost instantly. It's quite fast. At the beginning of a full charge, it might be doing the advertised 25 mph. 15 mph is more like it most the time.

The good: Price! Runs well, easy to use, seems to have good RF range, fast, tough hull, ships very little water. Be sure to pour out the water and leave it open to dry out between runs.

The negative: Short battery life. I'd guess I'm getting 15 minutes of operation with a full charge. It takes about 5 hours to charge. I have been looking for spare battery packs and couldn't find any. I ended up buying parts and I will be making my own battery packs (try BatterySpace.com and Radical RC online.) Runs on a set of 6 standard "Sub C" cells, wired in series, with a shrink wrap around it and a connector used for Tamiya RC cars. The RC hand unit requires 8 AA cells.

This boat is fast! I purchased it for my 9 year old son for Christmas and he loves it. The boat is extremely fast, with nice sharp turns, responds to the controller immediately. Highly recommend this RC boat. Durable too, as one time the propellers got caught in some plastic netting, we got it free and nothing was broken or damaged. Seller is excellent to deal with. Only negative on this boat: the battery. Battery loses charge each time you use it and it only gives you about 30 minutes play time before it runs low.

I was looking for a boat for a friendly family race over the 4th of July. Did not want to spend a bunch of money on it, and some calls to local hobby shops were very discouraging. Based on the positive review I saw here, I took a chance and ordered it.

Wow... the boat is quick. Do not expect to use this in a kiddie pool. The boat can only go forward, and turns by cutting power to one of the two props. Don't lets its turning method discourage you I was shocked at how tight the turns were. I would estimate a turning radius of 2 feet or so.

The only down side is the charge time vs play time, but even then it is great fun and well worth it. And yes I kicked everyone's tail at our race ;-)

I've read a lot of people on here having the same problem with this boat that I had...the motor cuts in and out. At first I thought it was a problem with the circuit completing, so I attached a wire between the two copper propeller rods, but I still had the same result. Then I realized, maybe the motors are fine, the problem is they are not receiving the signal to activate. Lo and behold, that was the problem. If you are having the same problem as I was, your boat is fine. The problem is in the remote control. The remote control comes apart very easily, it's just 6 screws that hold it in place (remember to also remove the QC sticker on the bottom). Crack that sucker open and then you will see one small screw that holds the circuit board in place. Unscrew that and take out the board. If your remote is like mine, the antenna wire will fall right out of the board. There's the problem, the signal is not reaching the antenna. All you have to do is remove some of the solder from the underside of the board so the hole is open for the antenna wire. Then just stick the antenna wire all the way through the hole, melt some of the leftover solder onto the wire so it is firmly in place, and voila, your boat will now work perfectly.

I really went crazy with this boat trying to figure out the problem and RCToyVillage was how should I say....less than helpful. The good news is if your boat doesn't work, this 5 minute fix may very well get it to function properly. All you need is a soldering iron, you don't even need any extra solder. Shame on the manufacturer for letting this issue go, but with a Chinese factory, what are you gonna do? Maybe they aren't going to take over the world after all if they can't even get a remote control boat right! Anyway, I hope my little fix helps some of you that are experiencing this frutrating problem.

I bought this boat for my husband to drive around our back yard swimming pool. He and my grown son love it! It is FAST!! I had a question about the antenna and e-mailed the company and they got back to me immediately. Then I had a question about the battery charger and they were responsive right away and offered to send me an additional charger. The boat is fun and fast and the company selling it really backs up their product. You can order this knowing that if you have any problems or questions, you are not on your own, the company will be there to help.
