Review 1 for ARCTIC Aqua Rider 703 Southampton Radio-Controlled Twin-Screw Tug Boat

Overal a good product

We had to purchase the remote separately. The instructions are vague, however there is little to do beside stringing all the tires which if you follow the instructions you will have left over tires but if you use every hole and reverse direction back and forth, you will use each tire. We found out how to wire the antenna by finding a site on youtube. It helps if you put powder on the wire before pushing it through the black tube which you will place on the right/starboard side of the boat on the deck near the forward part of the wheelhouse. Once it is in the water it is a fast little boat and responds nicely. It also makes a nice display model in a nautical motif.

High quality, attractive boat at low price

Favorably impressed by construction and finish. Rubber tires are nice touch. Waterproof seal on battery hatch. Silicon grease in seam between upper body and lower body. Battery lasted 20 minutes of use as promised.
Purchased T01 transmitter separately and it connect immediately, although it took some trial and error to get the settings just right.
Note for dismantling the boat to get at the motors if needed: There are seven hidden screws (in addition to the ones you can see) holding the upper half to the lower half. Remove the five bollards by unscrewing small phillips to get at hidden screws underneath - and pry up the rear two bollards to find hidden screws underneath.

Disappointed

The boat may work well; we did not get a remote with the model. We had to buy it separately. Amazon sells them together. I did not read the fine print about purchasing a remote separately. I was in a hurry to get a gift. Will not use this site again.

Does not come with the remote control
You will need patience to lace up the tires to attach to the boat railing
Details are great, it looks good and I added small LED lights to my boat for night driving on
the neighborhood duck pond.
