There is an extreme bit of figuring on how in the heck to put these things together. If they weren't so freakin cool, I would dock a star for that alone. They come in a flat box. You will need to get it SUPER SUPER SUPER filled up tight.
Be extra sure to have a strong ribbon and a real knot tied to the thing before leaving the store. We used Kroger and it was $.99. We asked how much was a refill before showing them the size of the thing. IT IS BIG!
Pay close attention to the instructions. They mostly suck, but in the back is a picture of all of the stickers and where they go. Essentially, you use 2 sided vinyl stickers (we supplemented with package tape) to secure pectoral and dorsal fins and the motorized ballast and track, and the hooks for the motor mount. After sticking everything on it, you do a little experimentation to determine how much ballast (putty) you will insert into the motorized-ballast on the fish.
Once you achieve neutral buoyancy (easier for SCUBA divers like us) you are ready to fly.
The onboard motor is charged via the remote. A hidden compartment reveals a short charging cable on the remote. Takes less the 15minutes to fully charge the thing - and it will swim maybe 45 minutes.
You can control the tail and the pitch. You can swim up or down or straight ahead, or circle the chandelier dangling in your
Unfortunately, one of the controllers was somehow damaged on the first order. No worries - thanks to amazon's world class service the problem was immediately resolved. Soon the them to jaws was spelling doom for Nemo in our house.
Overall, awesome product. Assembly should be left to engineers, but if you screw it up - have a roll of packaging tape handy.
Find something else to give the kids, you will be in far too bad of a mood to enjoy this with them when you do finally get it working.
The box was mislabeled for one of the items (shark box labeled clown fish), but upon opening, the correct item (shark) was in the box.
2 of 4 clips for connecting the clown fish tail fin to motor were missing, but this was a very minor fix with scotch tape.
Also, specific fins (side and top) had minor positioning mislabeling, but placement of specific fins should be obvious and x's are in proper places.
Overall, we are happy. This was a good purchase.

the double stick tape doesn't stay on the shark to navigate it. This is just a balloon since their is not real way to adhere the navigation part. Very disappointing!!Published on January 5, 2014 by Tiffany
Cool idea if you live near sea level. Here in the thin air above 5000 feet, it does not float. (The shark did not float, not going to try the clown fish) Maybe if we had filled... Read morePublished on December 26, 2013 by Gaylord M. Fokker
