Takeaway: Fast, durable, and fun! No assembly required, easy to get the hang of the controls.

You'll receive the boat, remote control, instruction manual, three-piece stand, USB charging cable, a small wrench, tiny tube of grease paste, a spare propeller nut, and spare propeller. The RC boat is made of a thin, lightweight plastic. It measures 14" from bow to stern (rudder), 4.5" wide and 2.5" tall. The stand is easily assembled and not only nicely displays the boat when not in use, it protects the propeller from getting damaged. The battery can be found inside the boat, but needs to be connected and disconnected between uses.

The remote requires 4 AA batteries and a mini screwdriver to open the battery bay door, neither of which are included. After connecting the battery inside the boat, place the boat in water to turn it on. Then just flip the switch up in the middle of the remote, and it'll beep when paired. On the remote, the left joystick controls the throttle to move the boat forward and put it in reverse while the right joystick controls the rudder for turning. There are also keys for trimming if the boat drifts. The LCD screen shows you the signal strength between the controller and the boat and the remaining battery life of the boat.

Getting a hang of the controls is pretty easy. The boat can go really fast at full throttle (supposedly up to ~13 mph) and was a bit too much speed for a small swimming pool; it'll perform much more impressively on a lake or river. The turning radius is ok, but wide at about 6-7 ft depending on your speed. While I haven't had the boat capsize (in the pool), if it does, you can flip it over easily with the controls. The boat is also pretty durable despite being made of plastic. It bumped and banged around the cement pool quite a bit quite without sustaining any damage that I could see. Overall, it's a fun, easy to learn toy that's definitely suitable for racing if you've got more than one. Great for kids and adults!
