CAUTION: If at any time during the charge
process the battery pack becomes hot to
the touch, unplug the battery immediately
and discontinue the charge process.
Initial Charge
Your Dynamite peak voltage detection charger includes
safety circuitry and programming allowing the charger to
stop charging after 15 minutes, if it senses any issues
that have come up in charging. The high electrical
resistance commonly found in new, unconditioned,
Ni-MH batteries can cause this safety circuit to activate
turning the charger off before a full charging cycle is
complete. This is commonly known as a “false peak” in
your battery charge. Should this occur during your first
charge cycle, it does not necessarily indicate a failure of
either your charger or battery. Instead it shows that the
charger is functioning properly and that the battery is not
yet fully conditioned. To complete your first full charging
cycle in the event of a false peak, restart the charger by
pressing the Start button again. Repeat this process until
the charge cycle continues to charge past 15 minutes.
It may take as many as 2 to 4 restarts to complete your
first one or two full charge cycles. Once your charger
completes a charge cycle longer than 15 minutes your
battery will be fully charged. A typical first full-charge
cycle should run for 45 to 90 minutes, depending on
the self-discharge condition of the battery since it was
shipped from the factory. Once your battery is properly
conditioned through a few full charge and discharge
cycles, you will see normal operation of the charger by
a single press of the start button, followed by a 60 to 90
minute charge cycle.

Binding
The included receiver and transmitter are bound at
the factory. It is not likely that you will need to re-bind
the receiver. However, you must re-bind when you desire
to operate this receiver using another Pro Boat 2.4GHz
transmitter or setting the failsafe.
Binding is the process of programming the receiver to
recognize the GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) code of a
single specific transmitter. The included transmitter and
receiver are bound at the factory. If you need to rebind,
follow the instructions below.
5. Launch the boat into the water
and start driving. If the boat
does not go straight, adjust
the steering trim dial on the
transmitter.

4. Press the bind button of the receiver.
The RED LED on the ESC flashes rapidly.
5. Power on the transmitter.
6. The RED LED on the ESC turns solid when
the radio system is bound.
NOTICE: Do not attempt to bind the transmitter and
receiver if there are other compatible transmitters in bind
mode within 400 feet. Doing so may result in unexpected
binding.
1. Power off the transmitter and ESC (electronic speed
control).
2. Connect a fully charged battery pack to the ESC.
3. Power on the ESC. The RED LED on the ESC flashes.
Failsafe
In the unlikely event that the radio link is lost during use,
the receiver will drive the servos to their preprogrammed
failsafe positions (normally no throttle and straight
steering). If the receiver is powered on before powering
on the transmitter, the receiver will enter failsafe mode,
driving the servos to their preset failsafe positions. When
the transmitter is powered on, normal control is resumed.
Failsafe servo positions are set during binding.

Testing your Boat in the Water
1. Carefully place the boat in the water. If the boat tips
forward, or back, or to one side, move the battery in
the hull for correct balance.
2. Operate the boat at slow speeds near the shoreline.
Avoid objects in the water at all times.
3. When the boat is moving forward, ensure water
flows out of the coolant outlet on the boat. If water
does not flow out of this outlet, repair any breaks or
remove any debris or the motor may overheat.
4 Once you are comfortable operating the boat at
slow speeds, it is safe to operate the boat farther
from the shore. Always keep your boat in sight while
it is in the water.
IMPORTANT: If the boat does not drive straight,
adjust the steering trim on the transmitter opposite
the direction of drift.
5. Bring the boat back to shore when you notice
the boat starting to lose speed.
6. Power off the ESC and disconnect the battery pack.
7. Allow the motor, ESC and battery pack to cool before
charging the battery or operating the boat again.
NOTICE: Do not turn off the transmitter first or the
receiver may pick up stray signals and run out of
control.
Rudder Centering
If you feel like you’re using a lot of trim to get the boat
to drive straight, return the steering trim to neutral and
mechanically adjust the steering servo linkage.
1. To adjust the linkage, ensure the ESC and servo are
powered ON.
3. Move the linkage in the connector until the rudder is
properly centered
4. Retighten the setscrew.
2. Loosen the setscrew on the linkage connector with a
small, flat-bladed screwdriver.
Boating Tips
Avoid boating near other watercraft, stationary objects,
waves, wakes and other rapidly moving water, wildlife,
floating debris or overhanging trees. You should also be
careful to avoid boating in areas where there are many
people, such as swimming areas, park waterways or
fishing areas. Consult local laws and ordinances before
choosing a location to pilot your boat.
Maximum speeds are only achieved when the water
conditions are smooth and there is little wind. A sharp
turn, wind or waves can turn over a boat when it is
moving quickly. Always pilot your boat for the wind and
water conditions so that the boat does not turn over.
When running your boat for the first time, we
recommend calm wind and water conditions so that you
can learn how the boat responds to your control.
When making turns, decrease the throttle position
in order to decrease speed and probability of flipping
the boat over.
Operate your boat in water deeper than 5 inches
(127mm).
Avoid vegetation in the water so the propeller and rudder
are not blocked. However, if these parts are blocked,
remove the boat from the water and remove debris.
CAUTION: Never retrieve your boat from
the water in extreme temperatures, turbulence
or without supervision.
Motor Care
Seat the motor brushes by driving
smoothly on calm waters during use
of the first battery charge.

• Avoid potential overheating
conditions, such as blockage in
the cooling tubes, driving against
heavy resistance or debris in the
drive system.
• Over-temperature protection is
installed on the ESC to prevent
circuit damage, but cannot
protect the motor from turning
against heavy resistance.

3. Power off the transmitter.
4. Remove the battery from
the boat.
Always store the boat open (without
the hatch sealed) or moisture may
allow mold and mildew to grow in
the boat.
Maintenance and Repair
NOTICE: Some tape and adhesives may damage the
finish on your boat. Always test applications on a nonvisible part (such as the finish under the seat on the front
seat hatch) before applying anything to visible areas of
your boat.
If needed, carefully remove dust from your boat with a
clean, soft brush or a lint-free, soft cloth.
General Maintenance
Before and at the end of each run, make sure that all
screws are tight and that the propeller and rudder turn
freely. Lubricate all moving parts with a light household
oil after each boating session to prevent binding and
corrosion.
The scale details on this boat are not intended for
manipulation. If needed, apply only small amounts of
thin CA (cyanoacrylate adhesive) to repair plastic scale
features on your boat. CA may discolor.
CAUTION: Always disconnect the battery from the
ESC before performing maintenance on your boat
or injury could result.
When parts are not repairable, see the Replacement
Parts List for ordering by item number. For a listing of
all replacement and optional parts, refer to the list at the
end of this manual.
CAUTION: Always replace the driveshaft when it is
damaged or shows visible wear or failure resulting
in injury and/or property damage can occur.
Lubrication
Lubricating the driveshaft is vital to the life of the
drivetrain. The lubricant also acts as a water seal, keeping
water from entering the hull through the stuffing tube.
1. Only magnets hold the seat on the boat. Remove the
seat from the cockpit by tipping it rearward and lifting
it from the cockpit.
2. Lubricate the stuffing tube through the oil fill port near
the motor coupler. Only a few drops of household
light machine oil are needed. If desired, put a paper
towel under the port to capture stray drops.
Volere 22

EN
Driveshaft Maintenance
Remove and lubricate the driveshaft after every 2–3
hours of operation with grease. Always replace any parts
that show visible wear or damage.
1. If needed, insert a small tool in the hole in the prop nut
to turn and remove the nut and propeller from the end
of the driveshaft.
2. Inside the boat, carefully loosen the motor coupler
setscrews from the driveshaft using a small flatbladed screwdriver.
5. Remove lubricant and residue from the driveshaft and
rudder shaft using a paper towel and rubbing alcohol
or motor spray. If needed, remove residue by careful
use of fine sand paper or Emery cloth.
6. Apply a thin coat of marine grease (PRB0101 or
PRB0100) to the driveshaft up to the washer by the
drive dog and to the rudder shaft.
Tip: You do not need to remove the washer and the drive
dog from the driveshaft.
7. Carefully reinstall the driveshaft in the stuffing tube
and the motor coupler.
8. When tightening the setscrews of the motor coupler
on the driveshaft, ensure there is a 1-2mm gap
between the washer by the drive dog and the end of
the stuffing tube to avoid friction.
IMPORTANT: Apply blue threadlock to the setscrew
in the motor coupler. Threadlock will help prevent the
driveshaft from loosening during use.
9. With the Volere and radio powered up and the steering

amount from the rudder shaft using a 2.5mm ball type
hex wrench.
in the neutral position, carefully install the rudder
in the boat and tighten the hex head screw so the
rudder steers the boat straight when the transmitter
steering is at neutral.
10. Align the propeller (40 x 32) on the drive dog then
tighten the prop nut on the driveshaft using a tool.
NOTICE : Running the boat in saltwater could cause
some parts to corrode. If you run the boat in saltwater,
rinse it thoroughly in freshwater after each use and
lubricate the drive system.
NOTICE: Because of its corrosive effects, running this
product in saltwater is at the discretion of the modeler.
Tip: Use paper or cloth to touch the driveshaft.
4. Remove the rudder from the shaft housing and the
driveshaft from the stuffing tube.

HORIZON SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL,
INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL

WARRANTY, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY
OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, EVEN IF

is advised to return the Product immediately in new and

Questions, Assistance, and Services
Your local hobby store and/or place of purchase cannot
provide warranty support or service. Once assembly,
setup or use of the Product has been started, you must
contact your local distributor or Horizon directly. This
will enable Horizon to better answer your questions
and service you in the event that you may need any
assistance. For questions or assistance, please visit
our website at www.horizonhobby.com, submit a
Product Support Inquiry, or call the toll free telephone
number referenced in the Warranty and Service Contact

in, please use the Horizon Online Service Request
submission process found on our website or call Horizon
to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA)
number. Pack the Product securely using a shipping
carton. Please note that original boxes may be included,
but are not designed to withstand the rigors of shipping
without additional protection. Ship via a carrier that

you do not have internet access, please contact Horizon
Product Support to obtain a RMA number along with
instructions for submitting your product for service.

complete name, street address, email address and phone
number where you can be reached during business
hours. When sending product into Horizon, please include
your RMA number, a list of the included items, and a
brief summary of the problem. A copy of your original
sales receipt must be included for warranty consideration.
Be sure your name, address, and RMA number are
clearly written on the outside of the shipping carton.

have any issue with a LiPo battery, please contact the
appropriate Horizon Product Support office.
