Swim'N Duck Remote Control Decoys - Mallard Drake
I have only tested my decoy and not hunted with it yet. I tested the 49 Mhz model and I could control it out to about 75 yards. I ran it around for about 30 minutes and the batteries were still strong. I'm going out again soon to do a battery life test.
Remember this is designed to use on a day with little or no wind.
Someone that saw the decoy working during my testing said he had to get one, so I emailed him the information on where to order.

On slow days, this thing is fun to have with you while in the blind. However, if you have any type of current, it can be rendered useless. If it approaches that 30 foot mark in range, you better be ready to go retrieve it. This decoy will get the attention of flying ducks, but doesn't create really any good ripples that would emulate moving ducks. However, it is extremely quiet and is a great source of entertainment for that bored child that is enjoying the outdoors with you. My oldest son loves driving this thing around and weaving it in and out of the decoys.

I really wanted this to work :(
I am really dissapointed. The duck did not work - despite its fairly hefty price tag. We had to send iy back.

Was advertised to be able to operate from remote 30 yds away. Did not run 10 foot away . Not worth the price.
