The new S1 Pentium from JJRC is one of the mini self righting boats in their S series which includes three very affordable 14 inch boats of different styles. The S1 is currently available for only $36.99 Click me to order.

The Pentium with its red, and white color scheme, immediately jumped out at me as a great looking little boat for running in pools, ponds, and other small bodies of water.

These little water cooled boats are powered by a 370 motor, and a 7.4v 600mah LiIo battery. They have fully digital proportional throttle, and steering, and the steering duties are handled by a micro 3 wire servo. As the title suggests these boats are also self righting, so there is no need to rescue a capsized vessel. Simply apply a quick blip of forward to reverse throttle, and the boat will roll itself upright, ready for more action.

All three models, S1, S2, and S3 are complete ready to run packages, that include everything needed to run your boat, except for 4 AA batteries for the radio transmitter. For safety, these boats also feature a low battery warning beep, and a weak signal warning beep that sends the warning back to the radio so that you know when you're getting out of range, or the battery is getting low.

Check out the pictures, and videos. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions. Stay tuned for running video coming soon.

Happy Boating!!

The Helifar H106 is a new ready to run, self righting 14 inch boat from a company best known for their FPV Racing Drones. The RTR package includes the boat, radio transmitter, two 7.4v 600mah batteries, and a USB charger. Click me to order.

For a limited time use coupon code RCDeal57 at checkout and get this package for $50.99

My H106 just arrived. First impressions are good. The little boat has a nice feel to it, and I really like the sleek appearance. The instruction manual is quite detailed, and covers everything needed to run, and maintain the boat. The package includes two batteries, as stated in the product description, and they also include a spare prop.

According to the manual there is also some telemetry functions. The boat is supposed to send battery voltage, and radio signal strength information back to the radio. I will check these features out as soon as I get it in the water. Here are some pics. More info and running video coming shortly.

First run. Range is surprisingly good.
