Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: Will the boat turn over when running?
A: The boat definitely will turn over sometimes. When the boat runs in high speed, the bow rises and the hull vibrates violently so the boat maybe will turn over sometimes, it is very normal. So, you’d better prepare rescue boat for any incidence in advance.
Q2. Will the water get into the boat? Will the devices of the boat break down when flooded in the water?
A: For electric boats, even the boat is sealed properly, water still will get in, it is unavoidable. Try your best to prevent water from entering into servo and receiver by doing some water proofing job, or buy water proof servo. For gasoline boats, water will get into boats easily, but there is one waterproof device box protecting the servo and battery. But if too much water get into the boat, the engine may will be flooded, then it will cause troubles.
Q3. Will the boat sink?
A: Yes, it will sometimes. In high speed situation, the boat maybe will lose control and turn over, crash, or hit something, these will make the water get into the boat, then it maybe sank. So you need to get a rescue boat.

A: The boat we sell generally has water cooling system, but maybe there are one or two boats without water cooling system. Please check carefully on our description.
