Battery Safety Precautions
• When using a Li-Po battery, always ensure the
Battery Chemistry Switch is in the ON position.
• Always disconnect a battery from the ESC
when not in use.
• Never discharge a Li-Po battery below 3V per cell.
• Avoid continually operating to LVC, as
this could result in damage to the battery.
Installing the Battery Pack
1. Turn the latch so the tab is parallel with the back of
the hull, then lift the hatch up and back from the hull.
2. Remove the radio box cover.
3. Install the included hook and loop tape on the battery
packs. Install the battery on the hook and loop strips in
the compartment.
Tip: Move the packs forward or back to adjust the center
of gravity for your boat. Move the packs toward the bow
so the bow rides lower in the water. Move the packs
away from the bow so that the bow rides higher in the
water.
4. Connect the battery packs to the ESC power
connectors, as needed.
5. Disassemble in reverse order.

Battery Chemistry Switch
This switch allows the ESC to detect voltage. When the
switch is in the OFF position, low voltage cutoff (LVC)
is disabled. You will know you have reached LVC when
the motor power decreases while the boat is in operation.
Li-Po: move the battery chemistry
switch to the ON position
Ni-MH: move the battery chemistry
switch to the OFF position.
Tip: The ESC programming card
(DYNM3821, sold separately) allows the consumer to
adjust low voltage cutoff and other ESC programming.
Antenna Tube Installation
1.Carefully feed the end of the longer receiver
antenna through the grommet inside the hull.
2.Pull the antenna wire out of the grommet
towards the outside of the boat, then slide the
antenna through the antenna tube.
3.Insert the tube into the grommet, then fit the
cap onto the tube.
At the factory, the ESC is programmed at High Cutoff.
High Cutoff: The Ni-MH cutoff voltage is .9 volts per
cell and the Li-Po cutoff is 3.3 volts per cell. High Cutoff
allows ample power in reserve after cutoff for returning
the boat to shore.
Low Cutoff: The Ni-MH cutoff voltage is .7 volts per
cell and the Li-Po cutoff is 3.0 volts per cell. Low Cutoff
allows longer run times, but leaves less power in reserve
after cutoff for returning the boat to shore.
Arrange the shorter antenna in the hull at a right or near
90 degree angle to the antenna in the tube. Attach the
antenna inside the hull, away from all electrical wiring and
components, using clear tape.
The outer end of the antenna must be installed above the
waterline of the boat to get the best reception of your
transmitter's signal.
4.Apply clear tape to the antenna, grommet
and hull in the boat to keep the antenna from
moving.

Failsafe
In the unlikely event that the radio connection 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.

Binding
Binding is the process of programming the receiver to
recognize the GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) code of
a single specific transmitter. The DX2E and MR200 are
bound at the factory. If you need to rebind, follow the
instructions below.
1.With the receiver off, insert the
bind plug into the BIND port on the
receiver.
2. When the batteries are connected
to the ESC and the ESC is
connected to the throttle port on
the receiver, power on the ESC switch. An LED on
the receiver will flash rapidly, showing the receiver is
in Bind mode.
3. Do not touch the throttle or steering controls, as this
sets failsafe settings. The throttle and throttle trim
should always be at the lowest setting during bind
mode. Press and hold the bind button and power on the transmitter. The green LED on the front of the
transmitter will flash within three seconds, indicating
the transmitter is in bind mode.
4. Release the bind button when the green LED flashes.

6. Remove the bind plug and store it in
a convenient place.
You must rebind when:
• Different failsafe positions are desired e.g., when
throttle or steering reversing has been changed.
• Changing receiver types e.g., changing from a DSM®
receiver to a DSM2® or Marine receiver.
• Binding the receiver to a different transmitter.
Testing Your Boat in the Water
1. Carefully place the boat in the water.
2. Operate the boat at slow speeds near the shoreline.
Avoid objects in the water at all times. When the
boat is moving forward, ensure water flows out of
the coolant outlet. Remove any blockage from the
rudder inlet and coolant system or the motor and ESC
(electronic speed control) may overheat.
3. Once you are comfortable operating the boat at
slow speeds, it is safe to operate the boat farther
from the shore.
4. Bring the boat back to shore when you notice
the boat starting to lose speed.
5. Power off the ESC and disconnect the battery packs.
6. Allow the motor, ESC and battery packs to cool before
charging the batteries 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.
Tip: If you are using too much steering trim on your
transmitter to make the boat drive straight, return the
trim to neutral and mechanically center the rudder.
To do this, loosen the ball link from the rudder horn,
then turn the ball link on the linkage threads until the
rudder is properly centered.
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.
8
When making turns, decrease the throttle position
in order to decrease speed and probability of flipping
the boat over.
NOTICE: When running at full speed in choppy
waters, the prop may exit and re-enter the water
repeatedly and very quickly, subjecting the propeller
to some stress. Frequent stress may damage
the propeller.
CAUTION: Never retrieve your boat from
the water in extreme temperatures, turbulence
or without supervision.
Blackjack 29
EN
Center of Gravity
Moving the batteries to the front or back can significantly
affect the boat's performance.
2. Move the batteries toward the front of the boat for
faster initial acceleration, to eliminate oscillation or
bouncing, and to increase stability.
1. Move the batteries toward the rear of the boat
to raise the front of the hull out of the water for
increased speed.
Drive Height
Lowering the drive will increase the propeller's ability
to bite at take off, but excessive lowering can cause
the back of the boat to feel loose and decrease top end
stability. Raising the drive helps eliminate oscillation or
bouncing and assist with top end stability, but excessively
raising the drive can reduce top speeds and cause
cavitation. If the conditions are questionable, adjust the
prop strut down a bit to reduce the likelihood of having
the boat overturn. The motor mount is slotted to allow
you to move the motor slightly when adjusting the
propeller strut.
Loosen the motor mounting screws (A) when adjusting
the propeller strut angle trim and retighten after
adjustment is complete. Use a 3mm hex wrench and
7mm nut driver to loosen the bolt that attaches the
output to the bracket to adjust the height. Raise or lower
the prop strut. Tighten the bolt when adjustment is
complete. You may also turn the dual rate dial down to
reduce rudder travel in rough water conditions.
Motor Care
• Prolong motor life by preventing
overheating conditions. Undue
motor wear results from frequent
turns, stops and starts, pushing
objects, boating in rough water
or vegetation and boating
continuously at high speed.

• Over-temperature protection is
installed on the ESC to prevent
circuit damage, but cannot
protect the motor from pushing
against heavy resistance.

Maintenance
Always replace the flex shaft when it is damaged or
shows visible wear or injury and property Bdamage may
result.
Lubricating the flex shaft 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 box.
4. Carefully reinstall the flex shaft in the drive strut,
stuffing box and collet. If the flex shaft is difficult to
remove or install in the collet, use a flat screwdriver to
B
spread the grips of the collet.
Ensure there is a 1–2mm gap and a washer (F)
between the drive strut and drive dog (G) to allow for
flex shaft shrinkage under load
Lubricate the flex shaft, propeller shaft and all moving
parts after every 2–3 hours of operation. Always replace
any parts that show visible wear or damage.

ESC
The included ESC programming card (DYNM3821) allows
you to quickly program your Dynamite® Marine Brushless
ESC control settings.
Programmable Settings
Throttle Reverse: ON or OFF
Cutoff Voltage: High Cutoff or Low Cutoff
High Cutoff: The Ni-MH Cutoff voltage is .9 volts per
cell and the Li-Po Cutoff is 3.3 volts per cell. High Cutoff
allows ample power in reserve after Cutoff for returning
the boat to shore.
Low Cutoff: The Ni-MH Cutoff voltage is .7 volts per
cell and the Li-Po Cutoff is 3.0 volts per cell. Low Cutoff
allows longer runtimes, but leaves less power in reserve
after Cutoff for returning the boat to shore.
Cutoff Type: Idle or Slow Down
Idle: When the Cutoff voltage is reached, the ESC will
stop delivering power to the motor.
Slow Down: When the Cutoff voltage is reached, the
ESC will drop to 50% power at full throttle.
To reset, return the throttle to neutral.
Brake: ON or OFF
ON: The boat will stop immediately when the throttle is
returned to neutral.
OFF: The boat will coast to a stop.
Timing: Low Timing or High Timing
Low Timing: For 2-, 4- or 6-pole inrunner motors.
Allows the longest run times.
High Timing: For 6-pole or more inrunner and outrunner
motors.
High timing increases both motor RPM and current
draw (up to 20% increase compared to low timing)
using the same battery pack and prop. Run times will be
signicantly reduced.
Only use High Timing if the temperatures of the
electronic components do not exceed 130°F (54°C) in
Low Timing mode.
Throttle Curve: Linear or Logarithm
Linear: The ESC delivers 60% power at half throttle and
100% power at full throttle.
Logarithm: The ESC delivers 45% power at half throttle
and 80% power at full throttle (recommended for
beginners).

exclusive remedy shall be that Horizon will, at its option,
either (i) service, or (ii) replace, any Product determined
by Horizon to be defective. Horizon reserves the right
to inspect any and all Product(s) involved in a warranty
claim. Service or replacement decisions are at the sole
discretion of Horizon. Proof of purchase is required
for all warranty claims. SERVICE OR REPLACEMENT
AS PROVIDED UNDER THIS WARRANTY IS THE
PURCHASER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY.
Limitation of Liability
HORIZON SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL,
INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, LOSS OF PROFITS OR PRODUCTION OR
COMMERCIAL LOSS IN ANY WAY, REGARDLESS OF
WHETHER SUCH CLAIM IS BASED IN CONTRACT,
WARRANTY, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY
OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, EVEN IF
HORIZON HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY
OF SUCH DAMAGES. Further, in no event shall the
liability of Horizon exceed the individual price of the
Product on which liability is asserted. As Horizon has no
control over use, setup, final assembly, modification or
misuse, no liability shall be assumed nor accepted for
any resulting damage or injury. By the act of use, setup
or assembly, the user accepts all resulting liability. If you
14
as the purchaser or user are not prepared to accept the
liability associated with the use of the Product, purchaser
is advised to return the Product immediately in new and
unused condition to the place of purchase.
Law
These terms are governed by Illinois law (without
regard to conflict of law principals). This warranty gives
you specific legal rights, and you may also have other
rights which vary from state to state. Horizon reserves
the right to change or modify this warranty at any
time without notice.
WARRANTY SERVICES
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 877.504.0233 toll free to speak
to a Product Support representative.
Inspection or Services
If this Product needs to be inspected or serviced and is
compliant in the country you live and use the Product
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
provides tracking and insurance for lost or damaged
parcels, as Horizon is not responsible for merchandise
until it arrives and is accepted at our facility. An Online
Service Request is available at http://www.horizonhobby.
com/content/_service-center_render-service-center. If
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.
When calling Horizon, you will be asked to provide your
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.
Notice: Do not ship LiPo batteries to Horizon.
If you have any issue with a LiPo battery,
please contact the appropriate Horizon
Product Support office.
