If you're looking for an introduction to R/C boating, for yourself or perhaps to interest a younger member of the family, theres a very good chance you'll be looking for something that's not only Ready-to-Run, tough and easy to operate but thats also fast, agile and stylish. Nothing quite beats the thrill of tearing across the water at high speed and for this, along with all the reasons mentioned above, the Helion Challenge is the perfect choice. Boasting a wave-cresting top speed, coupled with proportional steering / forward and reverse throttle control, plus a get out of jail self-righting capability, there's little this exciting all-inclusive package doesn't offer. In fact, all you need to add is 4 AA cells for the transmitter and you can be up and running in the time it takes to charge the supplied 2S 7.4V rechargeable Li-Ion battery. Beware though, put it on the water, show your friends and family, and they'll all want a go.
