Speedboats are brilliant, aren't they? Because as well as flitting across the water with the greatest of ease they conjure up glam images of Monaco, Miami Vice and David Hasselhoff's hairy chest (or is that just us?)
Sadly, in order to own one of these sleek machines you need to be either A) incredibly wealthy, B) an ex-winner on Bullseye or C) one of Capt'n Birdseye's arch enemies. Which is a shame because there's nothing quite like captaining your very own speedboat across the beautiful briny sea. Except of course captaining your very own remote controlled speedboat across the local pond. And that's where the Stealth Speedboat comes in.
This large, ominous-looking vessel is frighteningly fast and makes other battery-powered RC boats look about as threatening as a soggy fishcake. Bearing more than a passing resemblance to the Batboat, the twin-motor Stealth has got speed written all over it (not literally, that would look silly) and its satisfyingly sexy aerodynamic lines help it achieve speeds of up to 30 km/h.
You control the surprisingly manoeuvrable Stealth via a sturdy twin-toggle transmitter, whilst power comes courtesy of a rechargeable battery. A four-hour charge gives you up to 30 minutes to tear up the local waterways - we know that doesn't sound like a long time but the raw power of the Stealth more than compensates. Besides, any longer and those boat freaks who spend all day tinkering with their petrol-powered vessels for 30 seconds of playtime might get their anoraks in a twist.
Despite its menacing appearance and awesome performance the Stealth is extremely landlubber-friendly as its propellers automatically cut-off when removed from the water. In fact, the only thing you have to worry about with the Stealth is being spotted by anyone who believed you when you told them you owned a real speedboat!
