Looking for something with a bit of speed this Christmas and something a little outside the box? Well, if you are or know a fan of remote controls and boats, then this may be the perfect little gift! Check out the Revell Control Tide Breaker:
Suitable for beginners, this easy to control and nippy little boat has already provided us with hours of fun on the water. Using a Lithium Ion battery, the Tide Breaker is powered by a powerful little electric motor which claims to reach speeds of 20km/h! We didn`t have a speed gun on hand to test this, but we reckon it`s pretty close. It`s also air cooled – it`s a smart bit of kit!
The boat is controlled by a 2.4GHz, pistol grip control system – this makes for ease of use and a lot of fun. Its range is an impressive 50 metres, which is usually enough to get up some speed and throw some turns. Don`t be afraid to flip the tide breaker either, as it has a capsize proof, self-righting design. The only downside to this otherwise great gizmo is the battery life; after about 90 minutes of charge you will struggle to get more than 10 minutes of play time – which is a bit of a shame. It`s certainly fun whilst it lasts though!
