For some reason I have always wanted a r/c boat! Well, my first choice was the best choice as far as I'm concerned. This little baby goes fasssttt and not only could I control it with no issues, but my 7 year old grandson can as well. My 5 year old grandson will have a blast with it too. This being my first rc boat purchase I was pleasantly surprised that it came with little tools, oil etc all that is needed for maintenance and upkeep. I honestly wish I had bought more than one to put up for gifts!
