I just purchased one of these for my son's birthday. I have been in the rc hobby for several years and have built numerous rc car kits, so I was a bit skeptical about purchasing an RTR model. I have to say I have been very impressed with this boat. It took me very little time to set everything up - I just added batteries to the transmitter, charged the NIMH battery, and adjusted the steering and throttle trims. We took the boat out to the lake the next day and I was very surprised at how well it performed. It was a fairly windy day and the water was a bit rough, but my son had no trouble putting the boat through it's paces. It handled very well and ran flawlessly. Run time was around 13 minutes, and the speed was appropriate for my son - not slow, but not really fast either - somewhere in between. I feel like this is an excellent entry-level boat, and the scale looks are impressive too - looks great in the water!
