The battery pack that came with the duck is dead. It is also discontinued and the duck is back ordered. I am going to try a two cell Li-po and will change the connector on the ESC. If I kill him it won't be the first duck I killed. Mike H

LOL! The lipo should be fine. The only issue would be cutoff voltage on the esc. I'm not sure if it can be changed.

Yep .... Mine pivoted about front when stopping after any run and then tilted to left so I moved C of G to 50mm in front of centreline of rear magnets and rebalanced longitudinally to correct lean to left. It needs patience and a bit of experimentation but well worth it. At 3/4 throttle it chases ducks beautifully and steers forward and reverse very well. Love chasing those full size poo machines at local lake.
Excellent bit of kit and great fun .

You've gotta be a bit of a Quacko to run one !
