Recommended Posts

Anyone seen this little Nikko speedy RC boat model ?

I have one in the loft, goes quite well but is not that speedy...

I had something very similar to that, but I can't remember the model name.  It could well have been a Nikko (pretty sure it had that ubiquitous Nikko transmitter, but then I had other stuff with that handset so may be I'm confusing it).  Mine was mostly white with blue details, it had an automatic bilge pump that ejected either on the left or right side.  It wasn't speedy at all, it could barely keep up a walking pace.  I was fortunate enough to have an (outdoor) swimming pool where I grew up, I bought it used from Trade-It so I could use it in there.  The previous owner had built a gorgeous stained wooden box lined with foam covered with faux velvet for boat, transmitter, battery pack and charger.

Once I took it to an ornamental lake at a local college where a friend lived (which used to be a stately home, hence why it had an ornamental lake).  We got it stuck in the reeds right out in the middle of the lake, it took an absolute age to get it free, I was starting to think I would have to pull out the ancient (and probably leaky) rowing boat from under the foliage and row myself out to rescue it :o
