Hit the high seas in scale style or enjoy cruising around the pond on a lazy Sunday afternoon with the HobbyKing Fun Cruiser scale luxury yacht. This almost ready to run model arrives with most of the equipment installed, just requiring your 2-cell lipo battery and 2 channel radio system to be fitted.
The Fun Cruiser features a hand layed fiberglass hull that is is then finished in a high gloss pearl white finish. Capping off the model is laser etched wood decking that simulates the deck panels of the real thing. Lastly a few other scale details such as a staircase, mast and radar antenna rounds of this fun-scale model. CNC machined running hardware, held together with stainless steel screws finishes of this model nicely. Access to the battery is through the large removeable hatch held with just a single thumb screw. An o-ring sealed radio box houses the water cooled ESC, steering servo, and your receiver. Speaking of water cooling, even the motor has a water cooling jacket to keep the motor cool during long run times thereby maintaining performance. This is one nice complete package!

I received my Cruiser Luxury Yacht on Tuesday January 23, 2018 and to my surprise the front tip made a hole in the box causing it to crack an taking out a piece of paint, also by the second deck the part of the fiber glass was cracked due to the stress of mail.
I think they should protect it better since it is an article of value.
In my next review I will let know how the electronics works and navigatesFun cruiser boat quality is ok but a few things were left out by manufacturer. The battery does not sit in the hull because of curved angle. You need to purchase some plywood and cement and cut, waterproof and glue to hull. Removal of waterproof lid for electronics nearly impossible to remove without brute force. No hole to fit aerial need to drill box. Radio aerial to short and post to far back on deck and hits boat lid. Overall okI got around to putting this on the water 22/3/15 it looked nice performed well a nice turn of speed I never got it to flat out on a 3s 4000mah battery, after about 4 minutes it was just dead in the water. When I got the boat back and open the lid it was obvious the speed controller fried smoke coming out of the box it was in.
The factory fit speed controller is water cooled but is epoxied in a water tight battery box (no air flow) I am not sure of the what amp rating it is but I am really disappointed with 4 minutes use.Received this today, nice product well made nice finish. I will update this review once I have had the boat on the water.
