The AA Wave has a range of 120 meter or 390 feet. When the boat is close to or at the maximum transmitter distance of 120 meters, the transmitter will constantly send out two short beeps in quick succession (“beep-beep…beep-beep…beep-beep…” to remind the user to bring the boat back immediately. If the boat travels beyond the maximum transmitter distance, the user will lose control of the boat and it may cause damage to itself or to others in the water.
