Enjoy low cost, low commitment boating with this full function, proportional, self-righting racer
Gently steering a model boat around a pond is a lovely way to relax but if it’s excitement you’re after then you really, really need to have a stab at racing. Nothing quite beats the thrill of skipping across the water at high speed and for that the Atomic Lightning Bolt is a perfect introduction. Boasting a top speed of 30km/h, coupled with proportional steering / throttle control and a self-righting capability there’s little that this ready-to-run package doesn’t offer. In fact, all you need to get it up and running are 6 AA batteries for the radio gear. Can’t be bad and, what’s more, it’s available in two striking colour schemes and operates on 2.4GHz, enabling multiple boats to be operated at the same time. Stonking good value, it’s the perfect gift for any R/C fan over the age of 14, however do remember to buy a spare rechargeable battery - a full 9 minute run time is what you can expect and, good as this is, trust us, you’ll be wanting more.
