The self-righting Pro Boat Jet Jam is one of the coolest boats on the market. It’s perfect for a day at the lake or an afternoon at the pool. Whether the sun is shining or rain is pouring, you can run the Jet Jam in shallow water (as little as three inches!) or in deeper areas. Everything about this boat is designed for fun. And with a jet pump and no exposed propeller, the Jet Jam offers a safe experience for everyone. It even has a rubber bumper to prevent broken hulls or damage to the side of your pool. We also added a removable cup in the front so you can play pool soccer against your friends! Just add a ping pong ball or any other floating ball.

Instructions are basic, include some specific boat maintenance instructions so buy some lube and pay attention. Only real frustration (other than not being able to fill your 1:1 Offshore Cigarette with bikini models), is the very specific connectors on the battery. To be fair I’m only one TRX-4 Bronco deep since returning to R/C after a... ahem 30 year absence... so the connectors might NOT be super specific but they aren’t anything I’ve seen on any other lipo packs. So you might be stuck with the little USB charger, that does work just fine, but cannot give you cell specific data, resistance, etc.
Controller is inexpensive but works fine, and is appropriate for $90 little thing.
Over all, unless you’re in Everett Washington, bought the Boat at your local (rhymes with Lobby Clown), then complain about it here on Amain, while missing Horizon altogether??? (See Relevant review above or below). Anyway... this is a solid little boat, perfect for buying a pair to race around the pool, it has good run times, is a proper hobby level product, with spares available!
So yeah at $90 it’s exactly what you’d expect in a small hobby class boat, simple and fun.
One caveat, even though this is the smallest RTR Hobby class boat I could find, with a tiny battery, and a jet pump, it’s still almost too fast for a 14k gallon in ground pool. At full throttle you only have a few moments to turn, brake or simply freeze and mash buttons while this skitters across the surface with some alarming quickness determinedly seeking a pebble-tech wall to dash itself to pieces on post haste!
However, the Jet Jam is made of sterner well considered materials. So even with my fists of ham, driving it straight to its doom, the Jet Jams’s tiny rubber bumper prevents any real damage to the craft if not to your ego as it slams itself into a distant pool edge with a not at all alarming and sorta tepid... “TOCK”. However it also teaches a quick lesson in “trim” as the battery shunted far forward in its cradle altered handling somewhat. It’s not stupid if you learn something.
So solid good rating, on fun, simplicity, and being exactly what you’d expect and hope. It’s like a boat version of the Axial SCX 24. Tiny, but good!
Yesterday I bought your 12-inch RTR Pool Racer Jat Jam in Hobby Town, Everett, (1130 S. E. Everett Mall Way, Suite Everett, WA 98208, +1 425-355-8086).
Immediately after connecting the battery, the boat did not work and the seller said that it should be charged for about 2 hours. After charging the battery at home (about 2 hours)
I connected it but the servo was moving very sloowly. The motor's shaft attempted to rotate and stopped..
After that I returned to the store where we cheked? the condition of the battery cells with Li-Po / Li-Ion checker. The first cell has an Overvoltage up to 5,47V, and the second cell was dead (zero volt! ).? In this case I took a pictures with seller along with my receipt to send it to Horizonhobby.com
