Can't begin to show everything this boat has with just 12 pictures. It has a central covered electrical box located in the mid section. Most of the lighting is the the old cloth wire.The main motor battery pictured is not included. The original battery was a 12v wet cell common used with electric RC starter motors and easily available. One 4.7V is stand alone receiver power. One in the bilge is 2.4V made from 2 9000mAh 1.2V D size for exterior lighting. One 4.7V is interior lighting most can be seen in pics. The forth battery is stand alone main engine. A standard Futaba charger is required for 2 of the batteries. A special charging cord is included and a MOT V60 to charge the 2.4V bilge battery. You will need a main engine battery. The LIPO battery pictured in the main box is not included.... I can't find it! I would recommend the big wet cell. One of the search lights on top isn't working.
The flag pole light is not wired. It has a standby power supply and charging system for leaving the lighting on for display. A very old scratch build boat year unknown. Not really a swimming pool toy..
I bump the throttle forward then quickly full reverse and it can be stopped in time across the pool. I epoxy sealed a lot of flotation compartments but I never actually sank it to test it for flotation. I'm almost positive it won't sink!
But I'm not going to be the one to find out. On perfectly smooth water at the lake it's a blast! It only had 3 speeds and I have never been brave enough to try 2 or 3.
That was with the big 12v wet cell which adds a lot of ballast and over volts the motor. The three main sections and all compartments slip lock together. But if you intend to see how fast it will go I would add a couple of safety wires to the upper deck and bridge.With a variable speed controller you could play in the pool.
