" ...  What a great remote control boat this is. ... This remote control boat comes complete with a fabulous remote controller that controls the boat quite accurately from quite a distance too - pretty much as far as the eye can see - it's long range means that you can drive the boat very easily and get some great runs going at speed! ... An ideal gift for a boy (or girl) who enjoys remote control cars - this is one exciting step for them to take to water - ideally suited to pools or unobstructed lakes.  ...  "
