Live on a lake and love taking this guy out on the water. It goes very fast for its size, cuts really nice in the water, it's super easy to get it to flip back over if it does rollover, and it gets great distance from you. It's really cool how it won't work when it's out of the water, but once you set it in the water and pull back on the RC trigger, it comes alive no problemo. And more importantly, it signals an alarm when the battery is about to die so that you don't get stuck out in the lake. Love it!
This is a good starting point for anyone who wants to get into High-Speed RC Boat. Good since they are very affordable in their pricing dependent on how optioned your tank is of course. Highly recommended
I bought the Venom for my 10-year-old grandson. He absolutely loves it. We use it on a huge lake. It flies over waves, flips in the air and goes very fast. He likes the warning it gives when the battery is running low, so he can bring it in when he has it quite far out into the lake.
This product is built with amazing quality for the price, I have bought 300 dollar boats that break after a year of use, not only that but this boat goes faster then normal. This product has lasted me over 3 years of fun, I also let my kids drive this boat, they have crashed it into rocks and bashed this boat like heck but it is still holding up and is working as good as new. If you are looking to get into the hobby or just get a cheaper boat for fun I would recommend this.
