I purchased this for my son for christmas. I'm sorry to say that it does not work as advertised on tv.
It is super slow on grass or uneven terrain. These are about the only surfaces where it goes slow enough to go straight forward/backward. Most of the time, on hardwood or similar smooth surface it goes so fast and moves in all different directions that I don't think it is actually being "controlled" by the remote. It slides sideways more than anything else.
When they say it works on water, they mean that it CAN "skim" across very shallow water ie puddles etc. It will not go across deeper water. We put it in the 3 foot end of the pool and it just spun around in circles until the battery died. Then it was time for the net!
Battery life is terrible no matter what the surface. We were able to get 15 minutes out of it at the longest before it crept along then stopped.
My son played with this on Christmas day and hasn't picked it up since.
I got this at a very good sale, so I just have the "it is what it is" attitude with it or more like "win some, lose some" but if you're looking at full price, I would look at other review sites for this product and then for something else.
