Thanks for the review work, much appreciated. I would really benefit from a GPS reading and some data logging for wattage to get a better understanding of performance other than the subjective term "fast".

Reverse on a Revolt 30?

Does the Revolt 30 have a reverse option? if so, how do we program it? Thanks for your help in advance, Rick.

stuck at full throttle?

I keep seeing videos of the boat going to full or near full throttle if the boat dives underwater. Seems like a flaw in the RX to keep the throttle on during a loss of signal. The one guy's boat dove to the bottom of the lake and stayed running!

If you set the failsafe correctly that won't happen unless the built in failsafe is defective.

ya i dug into her a little bit and found the problem. the part that looks like a servo horn that connects on top of the rudder which controls the rudder from the servo has a little grub screw on the back. i noticed this is stripped out so u can get it tight to where there is no wiggle but as soon as the rudder turns the grub screw backs out and makes the unit loose again.

Why does the manual state the boat only turns left, mentions prop torque and if you turn right all the time it will not get sufficient water pickup and overheat motor/esc. Seems all "race" boats are setup just the opposite..

Is that a typo in the aquacraft manual ????
