The hull of the boat was also designed to be able to turn back over in the unlikely event that it flips upside down. The hull has been carefully designed for optimum water resistance. Under the top canopy hatch there is a second hatch with five locking catches and a foam seal forming a highly effective water barrier. Inside the boat generous amounts of sealant are used around the motor shaft and water pipes for a tight seal. The Rapid is powered by water cooled brushed 390 class motor allowing it to reach speeds of approximately 30km/h straight out of the box!
The Rapid is supplied with a Li-Po battery for the best performance and duration. The 2x 3.7v format may seem unusual at first glance but it allows you to charge the battery using a 5V USB port with the included charger.
The built-in telemetry will alert you when the boat battery is running low on power. The controller will emit a distinctive beeping noise as an alarm to and remind you to bring the Rapid back to land. If you operate the Rapid too far away causing the 2.4GHz signal to weaken then the controller will alert you to bring the boat closer to keep a strong signal. Safe start requires water to engage motor.
