Resolved charger issue

As promised, a 5 star update for the charger resolution. Thanks RCG. Great, sturdy, proud boat. Now charges fully & runs for just under 9 mins but could probably have 40 seconds more, I daren't risk it however.

Could be so much better

This boat in & of itself is brilliant, it travels at a good speed for the price, handles very well depending on your turn styles, the rudder will bend water in an instant & have the boat driving in any direction as quick as you want, it has a hassle free nature with a maintenance free prop shaft & it's been well waterproofed. It looks brilliant too. However,, my model has a bit of a dodgy charger &/or battery. It doesn't state charge time in instructions so you're a bit in the dark & hoping your charge light goes out in 4 hours max. This isn't RC Geeks fault & the matter is being looked into. If a replacement battery, charger is supplied I will return to give this Vortex a 5 star review! It's brilliant when it gets charged fully.
