R/C Boat


Well-known member
My boys would like an R/C boat to play with in the pool. Bought one the other day at Target that worked for about 15 minutes and then crapped out. It was a New Bright brand. :grrrr:
I'm not looking to spend a fortune on some professionsal boat (pricing on some of these are insane at hobby stores). Anyone have any luck/suggestions for a reasonable boat?

DH received a Makko Mini Sub from our local Leslie's for Father's Day. It runs through batteries quickly but he and the boys love it!

I was lurking around Leslies the other day, and they have an RC boat skimmer combo. You could let the kiddos have a blast, and skim the crud out of the pool @ the same time!
Who knew work could be fun!
