Helion RTR Rivos XS Micro Boat

Helion RTR Rivos XS Micro Boat

Ever try to run a hobby-quality RC boat in a pool? Even a “little” boat, say a 24″ hull, is way too big for backyard pool, unless your house was featured on “Cribs.” Helion’s Rivos XS, on the other hand, is just the thing for pools or any other body of water bigger than a puddle. Check the specs, there’s plenty of “big boat” stuff in the package., and the monohull design looks sharp.

From Helion:

The Rivos XS comes with a 2-in-1 receiver/speed control installed and is powered by a 180-size water-cooled motor. Both are protected from moisture by a sealed, water-resistant hatch that covers all the internal components. The XS also includes two pre-installed trim tabs that help the boat run smoothly over the water and a turning fin that keeps it from spinning out in even the fastest of turns.

The Rivos XS is a RTR (Ready-To-Run) boat that comes 100% factory-assembled and includes a 2-channel, 2.4 GHz radio that features fully proportional steering and throttle control, a 360mAh 7.4V Li-Ion battery and a charger that conveniently plugs into a USB outlet. All you need to add are the AA batteries needed to operate the transmitter, and you can be racing around your pond or pool just minutes after opening the box!
