I like the look of this little boat and for just $59 it seems like a good value package for beginners. I wonder what the run time is. Anyone know?

Just a quick question. I have a lot of those 260MAh 2s LiPoly Ultra Micro aircraft batteries. Is there an easy way to run those batts in this boat? I figure some kind of voltage regulator. If I could pull this off, when the wind is too much for my micro floatplanes I can run this bad boy around. It looks like a whole lot of fun.

if you run the lipo you will lose the self righting also what is the c rating on those small lipos they might puff up on this setup.

They say 35-70c. They have handled the 130 well, but I use two in parallel. I may do the same with this. If I can find a way to protect the batteries from over discharge.

I got two of these for Father's Day. My son must have talked the wife into getting two so we could have fun together.

Thanks for the gift idea RCGroups.
