Let's see together how to carry out a correct and healthy maintenance for your RC1 boat!
First of all, the boat must be cleaned and descaled from remnants of pasture and various animals. Before using liquids you can also use compressed air, so arm yourself with hot water and a soft cloth and a basin with dish soap and elbow pads.
If necessary, open the battery compartment and give it a good clean inside.
DO NOT RINSE WITH DIRECT JETS OF RODS OR HIGH PRESSURE WASHERS!
Check that the female SMA where the antenna is screwed is clean and that the hole is always free. When screwing the antenna, never over tighten.
Check the propeller grids which must always be free and clean
When you disconnect the batteries, do not pull the cables inside the boat as the system is wired and it could happen that a power cable is disconnected and the boat will no longer operate.
Store the boat in a dry, dry place with no animals / animals that can mistake it for a hotel.
Don't get it wet
Do not use it with dirty hands, as if any material enters the joipad this would be difficult to maneuver.
Clean the radio control with ethyl alcohol, it cleans quickly and leaves no residue.
If possible, preserve the display film for as long as possible, thus avoiding scratches on the LCD.
Like it or not, the batteries are destined to die in about 2-3 years.
Lithium batteries should never be left empty
They must be checked at least once every 4 months.
They do not need to be fully discharged
Charging must take place 40 minutes after they have been discharged
They should not be left under direct sunlight or at high temperatures
At low temperatures they momentarily lose 30% of their performance
They must be loaded with special power supplies
During rest they must never be at their maximum charge, optimal 60-70%
LIPO batteries MUST NOT BE USED they are highly unstable at high temperatures they have discharge peaks that would ruin the electronics of your boat
