The Balaenoptera Musculus Racing boat is a perfect choice for a child – or adult, for that matter – looking for a powerful, fast remote control boat that looks nice sitting on the shelf, too. This RC boat reaches speeds up to 25 miles per hour and has a run time up to 30 minutes. Its operating range of 300 feet is plenty for an exciting afternoon of zipping around the lake, and it is ready to run right out of the box.

This racing boat's twin motors allow it to make tight, fast turns for ultimate maneuverability. The built-in rechargeable battery only allows for 20 to 30 minutes of run time, and the remote requires eight AA batteries, which is perhaps the only real disadvantage of this RC boat. However, it only takes approximately two hours to recharge the batteries and get the boat out on the water again. Because the remote operates at a range of up to 300 feet, you'll have no problem if you decide to set sail on a larger body of water.

Another feature that makes this a convenient option for adults and kids alike is the extra propellers that are included with the boat. While the propellers are quite durable, even the most careful RC boater can have mishaps like getting a propeller tangled in some weeds or other obstacle, so the extra propellers are sure to come in handy. When you're not using this RC powerboat, you can set it on the included display stand to be admired.

From a functional standpoint, this RC electric boat has a number of impressive features, including the wonderful safety feature that prevents the boat's twin motors and propellers from activating when the boat is out of the water. Despite its incredible power, this RC boat is still safe enough for even young children to handle.

We also really appreciate the boat's bright coloring. It's eye-popping enough that you won't have to worry about losing sight of it on the water. Its sleek silhouette definitely lends some aerodynamic advantages, and the design looks great both in and out of the water.

Aside from the lack of included batteries for the remote, which we mentioned previously, the Balaenoptera Musculus Racing remote control boat comes with all the necessary supplies to get your boat running right out of the box. This radio controlled boat comes with a transmitter, boat battery, charger, extra propellers and display stand. However, extra decals would have been nice. It has a design that is already eye-catching, yet it would be noticeably improved with the personalized touch that decals would provide.

This RC electric boat comes with a 30-day warranty. This warranty gives you enough time to test the boat to ensure that everything is working correctly. We would have liked to see a longer warranty available for a boat with this many advanced features, but 30 days is an adequate amount of time.

 

Balaenoptera Musculus Summary:
8.8/10

The Balaenoptera Musculus racing boat is ideal for any child or adult who wants a powerful speedboat to race across the water. This boat combines function, design, speed and safety into one bright package. We would have liked to see this boat include transmitter batteries and a longer warranty, but overall, it is an excellent option for individuals who want a boat for play and entertainment rather than a collector's item.
