The boat runs real well forward, reverse, left and right. There is no "throttle" just go or no go. There is no steering trim adjustment so it may not run in a real straight line. This model is a bit narrower that some of the other "HT" RC models available and so it can be a bit more tippy.
It has a neat safety feature: the motors will not run unless the boat is in the water or some other form of conductor touching both propeller shafts. I found this out when bench testing the boat before I used it in water. The information on the box (which is the only "manual" you get) is not real clear about this feature.
A couple things to bear in mind that it is VERY IMPORTANT to get any water that seeps in the ship out when done for the day or the motors will rust up very quickly and you will have a one use RC toy that is now a static model. For initial use an adult and/or someone familiar with RC should help with the initial set up. Also you have just spent around $50 for a toy with the size and detail that you find on RC ships costing ten times the price, so something had to give somewhere.Read more ›
1. Not safe to sail out of the box: Simply put, do not put this boat in the water in it's factory condition. There are seams all along the deck were water can get in and destroy the motors. All you have to do is put some silocone gel all around the ship were the hull meets the deck, and water will stay out. However, having to mod the prouduct before using it is UNACCEPTABLE from a company.
2. This is a pond or lake only boat: This boat goes fast. And I mean FAST. There is no proportional control on the motors, just go or no go. As a result, the toy can barley fuction in a pool. My pool is probably 25 feet long, and the boat gets from one end to the other in about three seconds. It makes VERY wide turns too, so if you have a small, rectangular pool, you're going to want to look elseware for a boat.
3. The instructions are AWFUL: The boat's "instructions" are written on the box in VERY, VERY poor English (it's called "Engrish"), and as a result they are practically unreadable. In fact, the instructions tell you not to operate the boat in a damp place. Well, then I guess I won't be using it at all!
Overall, the boat is good, but the fact that you have to mod it is not acceptable. People should not be expected to modify a toy that they paid $40 for before they can use it. But once it IS modded, the toy runs like a dream. At least in a lake or a river, because in a pool, it just keeps running into the sides.
That said, I have had a blast so far. Yes the instructions are in bad English, but if you examine the figures closely it's not difficult to figure out what has to be done. I am the least "handy" person in the world (I repeated attempted and failed to install a towel rack in my kitchen, barely change a light bulb), but I managed to put it together and it ran right first time. Hints: "knobs" means "screws". "console" means "top part of the ship". "small parts" are the items in the plastic bag. The black plastic pieces on the side of the box is the display rack. It's fairly intuitive as far as what should go where.
I launched it in a small pond full of weeds. It moved fast and quickly got stuck in a forest of weeds. After retrieving it with a long pole, I saw that a huge amount of grass had wrapped around the propellers seizing it up. However, once I removed the weeds, and moved the ship to a less weedy area of the pond, it ran beautifully. It was my first time playing a remote control toy, but it only took a little bit of practice to get the hang of the remote, and the ship actually responds very well. It is fast and it makes a big wake and is so cool.
I can see that it may not last long; I hope I get a good number of uses out of it, but so far I (and some friends) had a great time with it.
It includes the rechargeable batteries for the ship and the 9V battery for the remote control.
The axles of the propelers are made of bronze, and the electric engines are really powerful. it reaches a very high speed and it is easy to control with its forward / backwards / left / right propeler controls.
This ship is way to fast, so don't try it in a regular shimming pool at home (12 x 32 feet). It is best for lackes of bigger pools.
The quality of the exteriors it is better than expected for a RC ship of this price.
I was so satisfied with it that I bought a second one. Great toy!!
