I got a new toy on the way and hope to have some summer boating fun at the lake.

I also picked up one of these little guys for the kids to play with as well.

Just picked up this one:

Electronics are crap - full on, full off on each motor (two motors for differential thrust). Plan to rip them out though and put in two brushed speed controllers (air ones since I have a few sitting around) and set it up like a twin plane for thrust. Should get nice smooth control compared to what it came with.

It's going to make a nice fpv boat and platform for teaching the kids to program via Arduino. My son has already learned and coded up a siren we can control with two different sounds via a 3-position switch on the remote.
