We recently took delivery of our latest toy, the `ready to sail` Silvestris, Revell`s latest RC boat designed for beginners from the age of 15 and up and perfect for these summer months. First impressions are `impressive`, this is a well-constructed, high performance boat suitable for all ages and experience at a great price (£100 approx).
Modelled on the actual Silvestris pleasure motor boat, it looks fantastic on and off water and certainly attracts a bit of attention. It has magnetic compartments (genius design for an RC water craft), providing quick and easy access to the rechargeable battery, motor and on/off switch.
On the water The Silvestris can hit 25km / h and is powered by a super powerful 480 electric motor. The 2 channel controller is comfortable to hold and takes 4 x 1.5V AA batteries (not included).
So, it`s quick, good looking and a whole heap of fun!
