Default 7000 rc boat - HELP NEEDED (Novice here!)

Hello everyone. My son has an R/C Boat called as 'S2 7000 rc power boat". (I cannot post a link on here it would appear as I am a newbie!).

Unfortunately the boat is not responding - the engines do not go and its simply not working. There is not much to this boat, but we were hoping to get it working together again - any ideas? I have fresh batteries in both the controller and the boat itself.

Thank you all kindly in advance :-)

Read the second paragraph as that might be why you can't get it to run. It has to be sitting in the water as it has a built-in safety feature to help kids not get cut by a spinning prop out of the water.
A lot of the low-cost RTR electric boats now have that.

Hi guys - yes thats the boat. Thank you so much for responding also. I have sat it in water but alas, its not responding :-( I also tried touching the two metal bars that align the motors as apparently that turns the motor function on also - but alas - no good. It's a real shame he LOVED this boat and we wanted to get it back out again :-(

Any ideas at all?...

I hope this is not offensive, but I would toss it in the trash and get a hobby grade boat and enjoy the hobby even more, aquacraft and proboat both have entry level boats and the parts are replaceable. Its just not worth sticking any money into.

Any boat that requires water to make the connection I really wouldn't trust. Bypassing it would seem to be your best bet.
Hobby grade boats you can get cheap now so there's no sense in buying department store junk. If something does happen to those and usually does in a very short amount of time the only thing you can really do is toss it in the trash. With what we call hobby grade you can get parts when needed.

Ok guys - thank you - I guess that is what I shall do!...Any links at all as to what you are referring to? I don't have much of a budget at all, hence why I was trying to fix this one :-(

Whats your budget and how big of an area do you run, there is some decent stuff out there for around $100

Hi mate i have the same boat for my son had the same
Issues what i found was a lose conector on the battery
Plug when you connect the battery it pushes out the black wire not making a good contact and when you turn on the boat make sure you touch the two brass shafts on the
Motors while turning on your boat it tells you to do that
For some reason i dont know why exactly .i hope this helps
