Lucky Duck Super Lucky Duck Drake
Great motorized decoy
I have used this decoy in Michigan for 3 seasons now, and I have not had any problems. It had been hunted over water and fields. If you want to extend the height, the pole fits inside 1" pvc, which I painted black. It has been though multiple downpours which made me nervous at first, but it has never failed. I carry it in an old backpack and store each part separate so it doesn't get damaged. The flocking on the head was starting to rub off, but I touched it up with green and black sharpies. The body is 100 percent flocked, so if it gets muddy, it takes a bit to scrub off with a towel. Whenever we go hunting, I always get a reminder to bring it. The remote is great because you can turn off the wings if geese are coming in. I would recommend this decoy, and so would the guys I hunt with.

Works, but could be MUCH better!!
Any motor duck is a great asset to any decoy spread. I do a lot of duck hunting during the season and I have put both of my Edge Expedites through the elements. Now, this decoy does work and will bring in the ducks. However, the wings are plastic and they do snap and break, pretty easily. I bought two of these and only have one good set of wings left. In fact, the other set of wings only made it through about 10 hunts before they broke in transit out to my hunting site. Plus, the batteries that come with this decoy only lasted me one season and then they had to be replaced. I bought the Primo's batteries that you use with the Primos trail cameras and am on my third season with those batteries. If I were to do this again, I would not buy this decoy, but would buy the MOJO Outdoors decoy and would only purchase one of them. MOJO's decoy is very durable and reliable and will last you longer to get your investments worth. Plus, with Mojo's you can purchase spare parts if you need too. My buddy is on his 6th season with his Mojo and has only had to replace the battery and that was after the 4th season of use. With Mojo, you can purchase a swivel so the duck will be able to turn with the wind on those days that the wind changes directions during the hunt. With the Edge decoy, you have to go out and move the decoy yourself.
