Water-Resistant Boat with Waterproof Electronics
Your new Horizon Hobby boat has been designed and
built with a combination of waterproof and water-resistant
components to allow you to operate the product in calm,
fresh water conditions.
While the entire boat is highly water-resistant, it is not
completely waterproof and your boat should NOT be treated
like a submarine. The various electronic components used
in the boat, such as the Electronic Speed Control (ESC),
servo(s) and receiver are waterproof, however, most of the
mechanical components are water-resistant and require
additional maintenance after use.
Metal parts, including the bearings, pins, screws and nuts,
propeller, rudder, rudder mounts, prop struts, as well as
the contacts in the electrical cables, will be susceptible
to corrosion if additional maintenance is not performed
after running in wet conditions. To maximize the long-term
performance of your boat and to keep the warranty intact, the
procedures described in the “Wet Conditions Maintenance”
section on next page must be performed regularly.
CAUTION: Failure to exercise caution while using this
product and complying with the following precautions
could result in product malfunction and/or void the warranty.
General Precautions
Wet Conditions Maintenance
• Read through the wet conditions maintenance
procedures and make sure that you have all the tools
you will need to properly maintain your boat.
• Not all batteries can be used in wet conditions. Consult
the battery manufacturer before use. Take caution
when using Li-Po batteries in wet conditions.
• Most transmitters are not water-resistant. Consult
your transmitter’s manual or the manufacturer before
operation.
• Never operate your transmitter or boat where lightning
may be present.
• Salt water is very conductive and highly corrosive. If you
choose to run your boat in salt water, immediately rinse
the boat in fresh water after every use. Operating your
boat in salt water is at the sole discretion of the modeler.
• Even minimal water contact can reduce the life of your
motor if it has not been certified as water-resistant
or waterproof. If the motor becomes excessively
wet, apply very light throttle until the water is mostly
removed from the motor. Running a wet motor at high
speeds may rapidly damage the motor.
• Driving in wet conditions can reduce the life of the
motor. The additional resistance of operating in water
causes excess strain.
• Drain any water that has collected in the hull by
removing the drain plug or canopy and tilting the boat in
the appropriate direction to drain the water.

Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC)
Battery Chemistry
Discharging a Li-Po battery below 3V per cell may
damage your battery.The included ESC protects the boat
battery from over-discharge using Low Voltage Cutoff
(LVC). Before the battery charge decreases too much,
LVC removes power supplied to the motor. Power to
the motor pulses, showing that some battery power is
reserved for boat control and safe landing.
The ESC comes from the factory in Li-Po Mode. To
change battery chemistry:
Disconnect and remove the Li-Po battery from the boat
after use to prevent trickle discharge. Charge your Li-Po
battery to about half capacity before storage. During
storage, make sure the battery charge does not fall below
3V per cell. LVC does not prevent the battery from overdischarge during storage.
2
NOTICE: Repeated operation to LVC will damage the
battery.
1. Keep the throttle at neutral and power ON the ESC.
2. Press and hold the Battery Chemistry Button on the
power switch for 3 seconds. The LED flashes the
current battery chemistry (red = Ni-MH or Ni-Cd;
green = Li-Po).
3. Continue holding the Battery Chemistry Button
for another 6 seconds. The ESC changes battery
chemistry and the LED flashes the new battery
chemistry.
4. Power OFF the ESC. The ESC saves the setting until
it is changed.

Boating Tips
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.
2.4GHZ DIGITAL
RADIO SYSTEM
Avoid boating near:
• watercraft
• people (swimming areas, fishing areas)
• stationary objects
Consult local laws and ordinances before choosing a
location to pilot your boat.
• waves, wakes
1. Carefully place the boat in the water.
• wildlife
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.
• floating debris
3. Once you are comfortable operating the boat at slow
speeds, it is safe to operate the boat farther from the
shore at higher speeds.
4. When making turns, decrease the throttle to reduce
the probability of flipping the boat over.
5. Bring the boat back to shore when the motor starts
to pulse.
CAUTION: Never operate your boat in less than
12 inches (30.5 cm) of water.
CAUTION: Never attempt to retrieve a downed
boat by swimming. If you need to retrieve your
boat from the water, use fishing equipment or another
boat.
• rapidly moving water
• overhanging trees
• vegetation
NOTICE: If the propeller and rudder are blocked with
debris or vegetation, remove the boat from the water
and remove the debris before continuing operation.
Remove any blockage from the coolant system or
the motor and ESC (electronic speed control) may
overheat.
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
and drive shaft to some stress. Frequent stress may
damage the propeller and drive shaft.
Self-Righting
If the boat turns over, release the throttle until the boat
comes to a stop. Return the boat to upright by applying a
short throttle burst.
The boat sitting in the water normally leans to the
battery side. Applying throttle levels the boat. No weight
adjustment is necessary.

NOTICE: When you are finished boating, never leave the
boat in direct sunlight or in a hot, enclosed area such as a
car. Doing so can damage the boat.
• Fully dry the inside and outside of the boat, including
the water cooling lines and jacket around the motor
• Remove the hatch before storing your boat
• Repair any damage or wear to the boat
• Lubricate the drive shaft using Dynamite Marine
Grease (DYNE4201)
• Make note of lessons learned from the trimming of
your boat, including water and wind conditions
Tip: The hook and loop strips in the boat retain water.
To dry them, press on them with a dry cloth.
Maintenance
Always replace the drivetrain parts when they are damaged
or show visible wear or injury and damage may result.
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.
Lubricating the drive 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 tube.
NOTICE: Because of its corrosive effects, running RC
boats in saltwater is at the discretion of the modeler.
Drivetrain Lubrication
Lubricate the drive shaft, propeller strut and all moving
parts after 30 minutes of operation.
1. In the hull, use a 2mm hex driver to loosen the
setscrew (A) holding the drive shaft (B) in the
motor coupling (C).
2. Remove the drive shaft by sliding it from the back of
the boat.

You must rebind when:
• When you want different failsafe positions
(e.g. when throttle or steering reverse has
been changed).
• Binding the receiver to a different transmitter.
1. Insert the Bind Plug in the BIND port of the ESC.
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.
2. Connect a fully charged battery to the ESC.
3. Power on the ESC. The red receiver LED flashes,
indicating the receiver is in bind mode.
4. Center the ST TRIM and TH TRIM dials on the
transmitter.
Transmitter Programing
1. Pull and hold the Throttle Trigger to full throttle and
turn the ESC on.
2. After 2 seconds a “-B-B” will sound. Wait another 5

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 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
12
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

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 Li-Po batteries to Horizon. If you
have any issue with a Li-Po battery, please contact the
appropriate Horizon Product Support office.
Warranty Requirements
For Warranty consideration, you must include your original
sales receipt verifying the proof-of-purchase date. Provided
warranty conditions have been met, your Product will be
serviced or replaced free of charge. Service or replacement
decisions are at the sole discretion of Horizon.
Non-Warranty Service
Should your service not be covered by warranty, service will be
completed and payment will be required without notification
or estimate of the expense unless the expense exceeds
50% of the retail purchase cost. By submitting the item for
service you are agreeing to payment of the service without
notification. Service estimates are available upon request. You
must include this request with your item submitted for service.
Non-warranty service estimates will be billed a minimum of ½
hour of labor. In addition you will be billed for return freight.
Horizon accepts money orders and cashier’s checks, as well
as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards.
By submitting any item to Horizon for service, you are agreeing
to Horizon’s Terms and Conditions found on our website
http://www.horizonhobby.com/content/service-center_renderservice-center.
ATTENTION: Horizon service is limited to
Product compliant in the country of use and
ownership. If received, a non-compliant Product
will not be serviced. Further, the sender will be
responsible for arranging return shipment of the
un-serviced Product, through a carrier of the sender’s
choice and at the sender’s expense. Horizon will hold
non-compliant Product for a period of 60 days from
notification, after which it will be discarded.
