Problems with starting motors
on 26 December 2013
Opening the model (racing boat 7008) on Xmas day we read all the instructions and charged the battery. After 5 hours inserted battery into the boat hull - fresh batteries in the hand controller - switched on....and NOTHING. We tried everything, checking all the connections and re-reading the instruction book.
As a last resort we looked at the past reviews on Amazon and saw a previous comment about putting the boat in water. MAGIC !!! It went off like a scalded cat and nearly took out the side of the bath.
Nowhere in the instructions does it say put in water - it must be an earthing / grounding requirement - hope this review prevents tears over Xmas - and thanks to the previous reviewer for setting us on the right track :)
Toy supplier - please take note and attach a note on the model for others to see.
