I bought this a few weeks backwards, and if you are wondering this is my first professional, hobby grade RC boat. this is an amazing piece of equipment capable of high speeds. however I will say, don't be like me, read up on how to properly use the things :-P, I read all of the instructions but two things they left out: 1: do not go straight from stationary to full speed. 2: do not go into full speed reverse. this is an amazing device but like anything else it needs to be taken care of, I unfortunately did not know these things upon my first use of it and so (like an idiot) did exactly both of them. it did not manage full speed as it had never tried to do it before and needs to be brought up to full speed gently and if you try to reverse it in full speed (as stated to me by the customer service person I spoke to here at wheelspin) "it cannot manage to go at a full speed reverse, the flex shaft inside is a spring and attempting to go at full speed reverse will just uncoil it, also the rear of the boat is flat which means that it is not very hydrodynamic and will cause this uncoil of the spring as stated before" (but with better grammar, that was more a summary of what they said). anyway, if you are used to boats, I totally recommended this, it is a beautifully crafted device with some top of the range technology inside. if you're not a seasoned boatist (if that's a word), such as myself, try a smaller boat and try and grow yourself up to this one. by the way, a big thanks to wheelspin, when I broke my flexshaft they sent me a new one for free. I really hope it hasn't been to much of a problem to them ,after all when I called it turns out it was my own silly fault... but, you live and learn I guess. ;-)
I thought an important point of note would be that the reason my boat was not very fast going forward and why the flex shaft broke, is actually that the motor was connected backwards. it was trying to go at full speed in reverse but was only going at half speed forwards. after reconfigure the motors connections, it is now able to reach its top speed and the reverse is at a reasonable amount now. if you get one of these boats please make sure that you check the connections first. the easiest way to do this is while having the boat sat on its display stand, listen to see if the motors makes a louder/higher pitched noise while going backwards than forwards. if it does switch over some of the cables inside until it makes a louder noise going forwards than backwards.
