Flytec V001 Cool Looking Inexpensive Scale RTR Boat


I was looking for an RC boat with a scale appearance that was both inexpensive, relatively slow, and easy to drive for the youngens when they come over to visit. The Flytec V001 RTR caught my eye, and so far it seems like it's just about perfect for what I wanted it for. It looks fantastic, and should look very realistic when running once I find a suitable driver figure. It could stand to be a little bit faster, but it'll probably be just right for inexperienced visitors, and my grandson as soon as he's old enough to start playing with RC models.

The boat does not have a servo for steering, instead it uses differential thrust to make left and right turns. When you steer one motor slows down, and the other motor speeds up to move the boat in your chosen direction. Because of this there is some speed lost when making turns, but it makes it very easy for kids to control the boat. All in all I'm pretty impressed with the boat, especially considering its cost of less than $40 shipped.

Here are a few pics of the boat. I will get some running video posted shortly. Feel free to ask any questions you might have, and happy sailing!
