Mirarobot GV160 EPP Air Boat FPV 5.8G 600TVL Camera Land Driving & Planking Mode RTF

You can buy a spare battery HERE and spare props HERE


WoW what a blast this thing is,great fun indoors and the quality from the camera is great too,with 2 speeds and reverse this thing is a whole lot of fun and very very fast, I even got my wife to try it on slow mode

Pros:
Great running on smooth flooring very fast,about 7 minutes of use
Does well on the water too,did not want to see how long the battery would last just incase the craft got stuck in the middle of the pond
Durable
Good fpv camera
You get everything you need including batteries for the transmitter


Cons:
Does not run well on hard surfaces or carpets,best for smooth wooden flooring
Where the back motors are,the foam section came loose but it was a easy fix with some shoo goo or goop don't use to much though
Noisey indoors

This is a great fun little RTR hovercraft with everything you need maybe include plastic strips to help it run better on hard surfaces.

Looks quite good, hope it goes well over water, maybe you can test that once you have a few ground videos done ( just in case it doesn't come back lol )
I just tried the bad wolf whoov which is similar but not gonna work on water due to the FC being under the craft!!
Great fun though, especially on laminate flooring.
Bad wolf wolfhoo hover craft whoop thingy review. Whoover (8 min 27 sec)

The whoov seem to work best on laminate flooring I found, I think if you had a big enough area like that you could set up a course and have a race with the one I tested which is actually pretty fast on my laminate flooring ..
Apart from that though I don't really see nearly as much appeal as flying / racing a quad or especially a whoop which you can do anywhere without having to find a big smooth area, I will be getting another though just so I can try to get my wife and daughter into fpv racing without it being too scarey.

Yes my wife had a go with mine too, she was soon bored though but with 2 it would be more fun.
That reminds me I must get her to have another go and I will chase it with a whoop!
