Ground Shipping Items

Some RC Planet's products can only be transported under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only, and cannot be shipped outside of the US. These products include:

  • Non-Water Based Paint and Paint Thinner
  • Petroleum-Based Oil
  • Aerosol Type Products
  • Traction Compounds
  • Tire and Body Cleaners
  • Epoxy / Accelerators / Debonder

The US Postal Service will not transport ORM-D items, and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.


For All Shipments: Special labeling requirements are needed to safely transport any Lithium products. Certain large Lithium Batteries will always require HazMat handling and will only ship via Fedex. If you would like to know more about FedEx and the safety precautions taken when transporting Lithium Batteries, please refer to the FedEx guidelines.

International Shipments: Lithium Batteries are regulated as HAZMAT (Hazardous Material) products and can be dangerous if not packaged properly for transportation. In smaller quantities, Lithium Batteries can be shipped via DHL without applying a HAZMAT fee. If you'd like to ship more than 2 Lithium Batteries, a HAZMAT fee will be applied for transportation. Please note that DHL only allows transportation of HAZMAT / Dangerous Goods to specific countries, some of which have limited service areas.

The US Postal Service prohibits international mailing of Lithium Batteries, as well as electronic devices that contain Lithium Batteries. These new regulations also prohibit shipments to or from Army, Fleet, and Diplomatic Post Offices. Because of these regulations, no US Postal Service shipping options will be available during checkout.

Domestic Shipments: Both FedEx and the US Postal Service are available as shipping carriers for most Lithium Batteries and electronic devices containing Lithium Batteries. Please note that the US Postal Service has a limit of three batteries per shipment; you can refer to the Domestic Mail Manual for further information.


Fuel is classified as a "flammable" liquid. RC Planet can transport limited quantities of flammable liquid under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only. For larger quantities of fuel (Example: case quantities), it must be transported under HAZMAT. Transporting as HAZMAT means that the amount of fuel is considered hazardous and will be subject to shipping by Ground services, including a HAZMAT fee for the special transportation. Fuel cannot ship outside of the US.

Please note that the US Postal Service does not transport Fuel and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

FedEx does not transport Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets. Please note that FedEx will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

International Shipping Restriction

However, RC Planet can ship batteries internationally using DHL International, but the quantity cannot exceed a total of 2 batteries with a capacity of 5000mah maximum. Unfortunately we are currently unable to ship this item to APO/FPO addresses and apologize for the inconvenience.

This is the AquaCraft Rescue 17 Electric Fireboat RTR with a Water Cannon and Tactic TTX490 4-channel 2.4GHz Transmitter. AquaCraft’s newest boat is an RTR that comes with a working water cannon that can shoot water up to 10 feet, a pre-installed 17 piece LED lighting system, and it even includes a 2.4GHz Tactic radio system.


  • Painted, joined fiberglass hull, deck and cabin
  • Ladders and staircases
  • Radar and radio masts
  • 600-size motor
  • 17-piece LED lighting system
  • Servos and drive system
  • Water cannon rotates 120 degrees — and shoots a stream of water up to 10 feet.
  • Bright, 17-piece LED lighting system runs on power from main battery — no additional pack required
  • Wire rope deck railing
  • Water cannon with powerful, high-capacity pump
  • Water valves, windows, searchlights and more
  • 2S, LiPo-ready ESC
  • TR324 3-channel 2.4GHz SLT receiver

The Rescue 17 is the only large-scale fireboat RTR available — and it can easily be ready for launch in mere minutes after it leaves the box. The Rescue 17 is also the only fireboat that offers so many “realizing” details: a rotating, functioning water cannon, lights on-deck and in the cabin, wire rope railings and more. Owners will have plenty of time to enjoy them, too, because every real-life detail and all the good looks are already built-in. Add batteries and a charger, and it's ready for duty and instant admiration.

"Guillermo A.Garcia "


"Got this guy and what a ship! Aquacraft makes super boats and backs up the warranty.Place some 2.5 in.tall fire fighter toy figures which I found on with a Li-po 25c 11.1v @ 5000 mAh which keeps it running well over an hour with short cool down time. Love the water gun which does shoot over ten feet. When boating at the convention center this boat always draws out a big crowd. This is a boat to have. Up to 11 rc boats, 24 planes, lots of cars, one 3 1/2 ft.tank and having a blast. Hi from Mcallen Tx. the R.C.@ Extreme place..."

"I got the Rescue 17 as a retrieval boat for my RC flying club, we have a lake at the one end of our field. following several u-tubes I added a lot of details it looks very good. I am amazed at how good it looks and runs. I'm having as much fun running the boat as I have flying! "

"Love this fire rescue, its an extremely satisfying boat to boot around. The water cannon works amazing and shoot a good 12 - 15 feet with a tail wind lol. Its really neat boat and id recommend it for anyone from the beginner to an expert who enjoys a nice scale look on the water. I have a video of mine here --->"

From Customer | 2016-09-01 16:06:33

Does it matter if it is above 2200mAh for the battery?


The highest capacity pack that they recommend is the 3200 mAh, part number GPMP0871, you are restricted to what will fit in the battery tray.

From Customer | 2016-04-18 13:41:08

What is the range of the transmitter?


It's good to do a range test before you drive your RC. The range can change depending on whats around you. This transmitter should have a range of about 800-900 feet.

From Customer | 2016-02-19 16:22:40

Does it include everything in the box to put it strait in the water without buying anything else?



LiPo Battery: 11.1V 2200mAh

LiPo Charger: Compatible with selected battery

AA Batteries: Six, four for transmitter, two for lighting system

From Bobby | 2015-10-16 07:26:30

aquacraft rescue 17

How fast does she go?


I don't see where anyone is listing an exact MPH but being a rescue boat I would guess approximately 15 MPH.
