- 5 stars after some "tweaks" but LOTS of fun and great value! Review by The Dr.
Antenna tip. Rather than folding the antenna end over and putting the silicone cap on, I made a pinhole through the silicone cap and ran the antenna THROUGH that. Snug, very waterproof and antenna isn't folded. Also, put a drop of glue where the antenna rod exits the boat as getting rolled over in the waves and hitting the sand can pull it out (bad) and water comes in (worse). Just stuff I learned and now you don't have to (:-D)
Remember, you really shouldn't run it in salt water, but I DO and it's a BLAST! Just clean boat very thoroughly and wipe Xmtr antenna before collapsing to get any salt spray off of it. I'm going to HP and get another battery! (Posted on 7/12/13)
