RIVA AQUARAMA PROBLEM

I HAVE RECENTLY PURCHASED A RIVA AQUARAMA RADIO CONTROLLED BOAT. THE PACKAGE DID NOT COME WITH AN OWNER'S MANUAL. I RAN THE MOTORS ON DRY LAND TO SEE HOW LONG THE BATTERY WOULD LAST. AFTER A FEW MINUTES THE MOTOR SOUND BECAME UNEVEN AND THE STABOARD MOTOR STOPPED. NOW IF I RUN THE MOTORS, ONLY THE ONE ON THE PORT SIDE WORKS. I HAVE EXAMINED THE BOAT AND THERE APPEARS TO BE NO WAY OF OPENING THE BOAT TO CHECK WHAT HAS HAPPENED. CAN YOU GIVE ME SOME ADVICE ON HOW I CAN GET IT REPAIRED? I LIVE IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA.

You should never run the boat out of water! The shafts heat up in the shaft tube and freeze up. Then your done.
I own a company "H2O Hobbies"
We sell ready to run Riva boats such as yours. Many other people sell these same boats from the same manufacturer in vietnam. BUT - These are display all models.
My company works with the manufacturer to create each model with removable covers to access the motor etc... inside. The models are made waterproof by lining the inside of the hull with fiberglass. We use high quality brushless motors (1) with hardened steel u-joint coupling to the shaft which is 4mm stainless steel and attach a beril-copper balanced propeller. This setup is bulletproof. It took about a year of testing several different components to find the right set of matched components to get the best performance and reliability.
We use 2 7.2v battery packs in series = 14.4v.
See youtube videos - search scalemodelpowderful.
My suggestion is to put your boat on a shelf because that is what is was made for and buy one from us which is waterproof and accessable to work on if necessary. Go to H2OHobbies.com or call me 612-325-2345 - Mark I am the Director of product development. I build the RC boats myself.

Where can i find a 2 channel receiver for a 2 motor boat. Right/left and throttle?


Hi DM,

A hobby store, garage sales, craigslist. etc. Another boat.

You need to have the Transmitter and Receiver paired to the same frequency.

You'll find most on either 27MHz or 49MHz. There are also six or so sub frequencies under each you need to worry about.

I can't be more specific than that with the information you supplied.

The motors or example, fuel or electric? Makes a difference.

Best regards
Mike
