Talk about fun! This remote control boat by Babrit measures about 17.5 inches long and is super fun to take use in the pool, lake, ponds or anywhere there is enough water to race it around. I actually got this for my husband who LOVES to play with remote controlled toys and has asked for a boat for years. He opened this immediately and charged the battery, added the 2 AA batteries in the remote and had 10 full minutes of pure play time. He said the directions were a bit fuzzy to follow, but once you understand the remote has to be paired with the boat in order to operate it, you are golden. He said the speeds are fun and he got up to about 11-12 mph running it on the lake by the house and he pushed the frequency distance to 150ish feet and still had excellent communication between the remote and boat. It is very zippy as it races around and responsive to commands via the remote. I tried it at a much slower pace and thought it was fun, too. The only bummer is it takes 3 hours to charge the battery so I am purchasing a second one and recommend you do it when purchasing because 10 minutes goes by fast. We both thought it was very well made and had no problems operating it and it has been out on the lake every night since it arrived. Very happy husband = happy wife.
