Helion gets wet with pint-sized, pond-ready Lagos Sport

Nov 17, 2013 No Comments by

If you’ve been thinking about adding a boat to your RC fleet, Helion is hoping you’ll make it this one: their new Lagos Sport. The little RTR is just a under a foot long and arrives with all the gear in the pic below, leaving nothing left to buy except sunscreen (or an ice saw, depending on where you live). LiPo power is standard, the hull is self-righting, and the electronics are waterproof. Unless you let the battery dump in the middle of the pond, you should never have to so much as dip a toe in the water when you run the Lagos.

Full press release below.

Height: 2 ¾’’
Battery: 2-Cell/2S 700mAh,7.4V Li-Ion

Lagos

 

The Helion™ Lagos Sport is the easiest, most affordable way to have RC boating fun at the lake, pond or pool. Fast means fun and thanks to the powerful fan-cooled 370-size motor you’ll be racing across the water and making tight turns like a pro in no time. The Lagos is very stable to run, but on the rare occasion it does roll over, you don’t need to worry because the electronics (2-in-1 receiver/ESC combo) are factory-sealed to keep water out and it has a unique self-righting feature that lets you “flip” the boat right side up from your transmitter. The Lagos Sport is a RTR (Ready-To-Run) boat, so it comes 100% factory-assembled and includes a 2-channel, 2.4GHz radio with proportional controls that allow you to go forward or reverse and make right or left turns. For power, you get a 700mAh 2S 7.4V Li-Ion battery and a charger that conveniently plugs into any AC outlet. The Lagos also includes items that similar class boats don’t, like the AA batteries needed to operate the transmitter, a display stand to proudly show it off when you’re not out running it, and a protective nose cover that protects the front of your boat when it runs into pool walls or other obstacles. With nothing extra to buy, you can be speeding your Lagos across your local pond within minutes of opening the box! With all of these features in one affordable package, the Lagos Sport is not only fun to drive, but a great value, too. Even if you’ve never owned an RC boat before, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to have fast fun on the water with your Lagos Sport!
