      I bought my boat off of marketplace and it came with the stock AM transmitter. I have since upgraded it to 2.4 with a FlySky GT3B transmitter and receiver. I use that transmitter for a few surface vehicles and had extra model memory so I programmed the tugboat. Haven't had any range issues and its working well. In fact, I sold the old transmitter and receiver on eBay last year. I guess someone wanted it! As far as battery packs go, I have a 2000 NIMH - the previous owner gave it to me when I bought it and its been giving great run times.

        Mine did not leak until I took things apart to replace the motor. I assume the o-ring goes on the drive shaft (at the end by the prop?), Or does it go on the rudder shaft? Did it come with one stock, or did the grease just keep the water out? I must have lost it during reassembly. I ran it for years without needing to lube the drive shaft or have water come in. It's been a really good boat and I'd like to get it back on the water this summer.

          The o rings I used was put on the propeller shaft behind the propeller the transmitter that I use is a tactic 6 channel with a 2.4 gz receiver the battery pack is a 7.2 volt 6-7 cell stick battery 1500-1800 mah 7.2 volt stick battery the prongs I bought at auto zone but I might be buying a different size o ring Just to keep the water out of the the hull of the tug boat tower hobbies told me to use only 1800 mah for my tug boat but by all means if the 2000 mah works kudos to you I might have to try that out but thanks for the battery mah update Many thanks battle ship Fourth of July is a good day to run rc boats plus I’m thinking that an o ring that came with the tug boat not sure if it did or didn’t well ttyl for now

              The o ring goes on the drive shaft and sits on the drive shaft to the beginning of the propeller shaft bulkhead before the propeller is put on the drive shaft of the tube that the drive shaft hole on the stern of the boat that’s what u have to seal up so water can’t get in the hull but I might be changing the size of the oring

                I’m not sure if aqua craft actually Provided a o ring when I bought the tug boat in 2005 unless I lost the o ring but still not sure I’ll look it up online

                  I just watched the video of the Atlantic harbor tug boat and I didn’t see a o ring at all When they made tug boat in 2005 but discontinued it 2008 or when they Started producing the Atlantic harbor tug boat sincerely battleship

                    Just respectfully saying the o rings I bought were way two big and not small enough so I have to look for o rings that are a lot smaller and stretchable but the o ring are a good thing to keep water from getting inside the tugboats hull ttyl

                      I don't think my Tug has o-rings. I'll check next time I have the driveshaft out for cleaning.

                          I should have mentioned in my last post, but I haven't had an issue with water getting into the hull. The tube is serviced with marine grease and it keeps it dry. Hope you can get it fixed soon!

                            thank you very much cm aero I did find a company that makes the o rings but I didn’t have the money and I forgot the website address I’ve been busy very lately with bills and this pandemic is taking an emotional toll on me. I don’t know when Bancroft rc boats is going to produce the positional static gun turrets any ways ttyl
