Rip, roar and race like never before with the Zelos ™ 48 Type G Catamaran. This high-speed catamaran is equipped with a Dynamite ® Zenoah G300PUM 30cc gas engine capable of a pulse-pounding 50+ miles per hour. By the time the competition knows what hit them; they'll be eating your wake. The Dynamite Zenoah engine also features an EZ Start system requiring less than half the effort it takes on the average engine to pull the engine starter. The new top deck design resembles the sporty and classic look offered by the Zelos 36. A new trim scheme finishes off the look and ensures the boat looks as fast sitting on the shelf as it does on the water. Make some waves with the Zelos 48 Type G.

Video Overview

Proven, Wide Hull Design

Proven, Wide Hull Design

The tried and true wide hull design remains and now features an updated and modern trim scheme. The boat is reinforced with a triple layer of fiberglass around the seam to ensure it stays in one piece through the most brutal of crashes, and is enhanced with a superior gel coat finish.

Sturdy Fiberglass Canopy

Sturdy Fiberglass Canopy

The new canopy features more streamlined air scoops. It also features aluminum thumb screw fasteners to keep the canopy in place in case of a flip.

Zenoah has unrivaled reliability when it comes to two-stroke surface engines. With this engine, the boat will easily hit 50+ mph.

Centrifugal Clutch

A centrifugal clutch prevents the prop from spinning while the engine is at idle. This keeps your fingers and hands safe while you handle the boat while placing it in or taking it out of the water. It also allows you to easily launch your boat without the need for a second person to toss your boat in the water while you work the throttle on the radio. This is a must on this size boat, but is often not an included feature.

Adjustable Aluminum Anodized Propeller Strut

Adjustable Aluminum Anodized Propeller Strut

The anodizing on the propeller strut ensures the aluminum is protected in harsh water condition, including salt water. The adjustability allows customers to tune the boat for specific water conditions.

Breakaway, Anodized Aluminum Rudder

Breakaway, Anodized Aluminum Rudder

Just like the strut, the anodizing on the rudder provides protection from harsh water conditions, while the break-away feature prevents from having to replace the rudder or rudder mount if the boat ever runs over a floating object.

Spektrum SLT3 Transmitter with Dual Protocol

Spektrum SLT3 Transmitter with Dual Protocol

A great low-cost radio system for bashers, crawler fans, and first-time drivers, the Spektrum ™ 3-channel SLT3 with SR315 receiver goes beyond basic — offering dependable SLT 2.4GHz control now, plus next-level DSMR ® upgrade potential for the future.

Powerful 1/6th Scale S904HV Steering Servo

A boat this big needs some muscle in the steering department. A 1/6 scale servo with 18 kilograms of torque is ready to point it in any direction with authority.

Dynamite Reaction 2.0 5200mAh LiPo Receiver Battery

Dynamite Reaction 2.0 5200mAh LiPo Receiver Battery

The included rechargeable LiPo receiver battery allows for hours of play time without stopping to re-charge.

Water Cooling

The water pickup on the bottom of the hull and in the rudder bring cool water onboard to the engine and tuned exhaust to keep their operating temperatures down while in operation.

Metal Propeller

The metal propeller adds durability and longevity, plus you can sharpen and balance it for even greater performance. The aggressive pitched three blade propeller takes advantage of the engine's torque to provide thrilling speeds.

Wood Boat Stand

The included wood boat stand allows for display or as a place to place the boat while working on it.

Traxxas M41 Catamaran

The Traxxas M41 Catamaran dominates the waters with its size and speed, as one of the largest models offered by the company. It is meant to replicate the DCB M41, Dave’s Custom Boats founder Dave Hemingston specifically designed the full-size M41 to blend speed with ultimate power with a pair of Mercury racing engines. The smaller-scale replica reaches a speed of more than 50 miles per hour running the Traxxas 6S brushless power system.

You can trust Traxxas to provide ready-to-run vehicles that require no assembly or tweaking. Simply place them in the water and watch their brushless motors provide much-needed energy to get racing. Reach high speeds across the water and skim through any current.

Traxxas Boats

When you buy Traxxas, you will experience a company that cares about your RC experience. The founders were inspired by the lack of high-quality vehicles on a small scale and wanted to level the playing field for beginners and expert hobbyists. That is why they seek to reduce the learning curve so that anyone can master an RC vehicle, either on land or on the open water. Each car, truck, and boat has a 2.4GHz radio system for excellent reliability.

We recommend the Traxxas DCB M41 40-Inch Brushless Ready-to-Race Boat 6S Performance Combo for beginners that want maximum power. This model runs on electric power, so it is easy to charge and then it’s ready for speeds of 50 MPH or more.

Engineers have made the DCB M41 highly durable and stable with the exclusive Traxxas Stability Management (TSM), so that the boat will stay tracking where you want it to go, even if the water is a little choppy. The M41 includes the TQi 2.4 GHz radio system.

Traxxas M41 Parts and Upgrades

Always make sure that you have extra batteries and a charger for your vehicle. While RC Superstore sells some batteries and chargers with certain models, be sure to have a spare set of batteries. A good charger can make all the difference when you run out of power before a race.

One great combo for the M41 is the Traxxas 2990 Dual EZ-Peak ID Charger & 2x 3S 5000mAh LiPo Battery Completer . It is designed to assist dual battery vehicles, including the M41, and can charge these two LiPo batteries in just over an hour. Simply insert the batteries that need to be charged and press the “Start” button. The progress bar will keep you updated about if they are ready. One of these will keep you set for the next race.

Get Your Ready To Race Traxxas Boats At RC Superstore

RC Superstore wants to keep you blasting across the waves during a race. We have RTR RC boats, cars, and trucks suited for any skill level and with detailed scale replicas. In addition, our experts can provide advice on how you can upgrade.

Contact us today to get started. At RC Superstore, we want you to have models that are versatile, fun, and fast. You will find the fun at our online hobby store.

7 Super-Fast RC Catamaran Boats

7 Super-Fast RC Catamaran Boats

Joseph Flynt

Catamarans—cats for short—are the type of boat you either love or have little interest in. This guide is for the former. An RC catamaran is a multihulled vessel with dual parallel hulls. With sailing cats, there are at least two beams that connect the hulls, with a mast on one of them. The absence of a keel lets the boats sail or race in shallow waters. That means they get to go where other models can’t.

The Catamaran’s unique design is not only for riding the shallows. It also makes the boats a lot wider, more stable, and faster than conventional monohull crafts.

  • Radio Controlled Catamarans

R/C catamarans are miniature versions of real boats. Most models are ultra-fast speedboats that achieve plane quicker than other vessel types. Hobbyists love to race them because of their pace on the water and aggressive turning ability. The downside to cats is that they’re not at home on choppier waters, and are more vulnerable to turnovers. Consider an RC cat for smooth water, sporty fun.

  • RC Catamaran Buying Considerations

The price between models can vary a lot, so set a maximum budget before you do anything. Knowing your budget narrows down the search to only those within your price range.

Here’s a quick breakdown of buying considerations for those new to RC.

  • Gas vs. electric
  • Motor choices
  • Running time
  • Charging time
  • Useful features
  • Gas Vs. Electric Power

Opt for an electric cat if you’re new to the world of RC boats. They’re cleaner, easier to maintain and still have plenty of oomph on the water. Gas-powered cats are for experienced hobbyists. They’re for people who love the realistic experience provided by liquid fuels. But they’re also dirtier, need periodic oil changes, engine tune-ups, and regular maintenance.

  • Speed Considerations

Speed is half the fun, but the faster the boat, the more space and skills one needs to control it. Some models have variable speeds, whereas others are plain fast from the off. Think about where you intend to use the boat. High speed is not your friend with small bodies of water such as pools and tiny ponds. Novice users should opt for a slower cat or one with variable speeds and precise throttle manipulation.

  • Motor Choices

Electric-powered catamarans use brushed or brushless motors. The brushed options are the cheapest of the two. They are also slower and have a shorter life expectancy than their brushless counterparts. Brushless is the best option because they pack more power, are quieter, and require no maintenance. Most agree that the higher cost of a brushless power system is justifiable.

  • Running & Charging Times

The time an RC cat runs on a single charge depends on how hard you push it and the battery used. Running times vary between models and can range from single digits to 30+ minutes. There are two other things to consider here. One is the charging time and the other is the cost of extra batteries. I include the battery and charging times in each of the reviews.

  • Control Range

The control range is how far the boat can travel from its transmitter. Make sure the distance is acceptable for your needs. Likewise, it’s not necessary to have a range that goes further than the line of sight (LOS). If that happens, and you lose power or the signal, you may not be able to recover the boat. Some models come with low-battery and low-signal warning indicators.

The range also depends on the radio system used and other factors. The control distance is acceptable with all the models featured in this review guide.

  • Useful Features

Make a list of what features are important to you. Consider the boat’s materials, especially its hull. Others might be a breakaway rudder system, low battery protection, and a self-righting function. Make a note of the dimensions too. Beginners often buy a model that’s either smaller or bigger than they thought. Also, heed the manufacturer’s recommended age if you’re buy the boat as a surprise gift.

  • About My ‘RC Catamaran’ Guide

The purpose of this simple guide is to put all the jumbled seller’s spiel into plain English. These short reviews highlight the boats good and not so good features—if any. There’s also a tech specs column that gives details of the specifics mentioned above.

The 7 RC catamarans below are the result of personal research. I also took the views of industry experts into consideration, along with user feedback. The first three are the Editor’s choice for Best Budget, Best Value, and the Top Pick. The cats below those are in price order for convenience.

  • 1. Pro Boat 17” Miss Geico RC Cat | Best Budget

Pro Boat 17” Miss Geico RC Cat

Editor’s Rating: 4.2/5

Pro Boat‘s 7” Miss Geico is a fun RC catamaran. It’s a fully ready to run (RTR) model that comes complete with a battery and wall charger. It’s a fun boat and an excellent first-time cat.

  • Best feature 1: Durable blow-molded ABS hull
  • Best feature 2: Dynamite 380-size motor
  • Plus points: RTR model, excellent first-time cat, streamlined design, breakaway rudder,
  • Minus points: Slow for a cat, short run time
  • Miss Geico RC Catamaran Highlights

The Miss Geico RC cat has a durable, rigid, impact-resistant ABS hull. A powerful 380 motor system provides the boat with plenty of torque for a model in its class. Consider this vessel as a first catamaran, especially if it’s a gift for younger children. It makes an excellent trainer craft with its precise throttle manipulation and easy-to-use controls.

The streamlined design and bright yellow color offer more than just an eye-catching appeal. It also gives the Miss Geico high visibility on the water. Another feature worth a mention is the breakaway rudder system. That helps to protect the drivetrain should the boat hit ground.

  • The Not So Good

At 12–15 mph, the 17” Miss Geico is not a super-fast catamaran, but then it doesn’t claim to be. The run time with the supplied battery only lasts about 10–15 minutes at best. That’s quite typical for this category, but disappointing nonetheless.

  • 2. Aquacraft Wildcat EP Catamaran | Best Value

Aquacraft Wildcat EP Catamaran

Editor’s Rating: 4.8/5

The Best Value pick goes to Aquacraft’s Wildcat EP brushless catamaran. This boat is a step up from the beginner-friendly model above. Let’s check out some of its best features.

  • Best feature 1: Molded ABS hull w/ transom drain plug
  • Best feature 2: Powerful 35-36-1800Kv brushless outrunner motor
  • Plus points: Tactic Tx, striking graphics, breakaway rudder, failsafe features, boat stand
  • Minus points: Too fast for beginners, no battery included
  • Wildcat EP Catamaran Highlights

The Aquacraft Wildcat EP catamaran is everything you’d expect from a model in its category. The boat has striking graphics and a beautiful streamlined molded ABS hull complete with a transom drain plug. A powerful brushless 35-36-1800Kv outrunner motor propels this cat to speeds exceeding 40 mph (64 km/h). Control is easy and interference-free thanks to the TTX300 SLT Tactic radio system.

  • Safe & Secure

There are plenty of safety and protection features with the Wildcat EP Catamaran, namely:

  • Water-cooled brushless controller w/ low-voltage cutoff
  • Break-away rudder system
  • Steering & throttle reverse/trims
  • Two-blade fiber-reinforced plastic propeller

Adrenaline fans won’t be disappointed with the speed and handling of this cat. It’s super stable on the water even when it’s choppy. It may fall slightly short for expert users, but it’s an excellent second boat for those at the intermediate level. There’s also a stand for safe storing out of the water.

The Wildcat EP catamaran may temp beginners though it’s too fast for novice users. It has superb handling, but driving at high speeds still takes skill. The model doesn’t include a battery, so you need to add at least 15 dollars to the price or more if you want spares.

  • 3. RTR Gas-Powered Zelos G Catamaran | Top Pick

RTR Gas-Powered Zelos G Catamaran

Editor’s Rating: 4.4/5

Pro Boat gets the Top Pick with it’s incredible gas-powered Zelos 48” catamaran. We’re in the big league now. It’s the kind of model that beginners and intermediate enthusiasts aspire to.

  • Best feature 1: Wide, triple layered fiberglass hull
  • Best feature 2: Sturdy canopy w/ thumb screw fasteners
  • Plus points: Powerful 30cc engine, water cooling, metal prop, centrifugal clutch, boat stand
  • Minus points: Needs experience and maintenance skills
  • Zelos G Catamaran Highlights

The Zelos™ 48 Type G Catamaran is a gorgeous boat. It has a classic sporty look with a striking trim finish. That makes it an attractive display model when it’s out of the water (stand included). And it’s well-protected against brutal crashes thanks to the extra layers of reinforced fiberglass.

  • The Zelos G Power System

This powerful high-speed boat springs to life when it’s on the water. Expect speeds of 50+ mph (80+ km/h) from its gas-powered 30cc Dynamite® Zenoah G300PUM engine. It starts effortlessly too with the EZ Starting System, so no pulling needed. The boat has a 3-blade metal prop that’s durable and long-lasting. It’s also possible to sharpen and balance the prop to improve performance further.

The metal propeller won’t spin when the engine is idle thanks to the centrifugal clutch. This safety feature protects hands and fingers when moving the boat in and out of the water. Surprisingly, not all big boats include a centrifugal clutch. Also, the propeller strut has anodizing to protect it in harsh conditions, and that includes salt water.

Another feature to mention is the water-cooling system. It uses water pickups on the bottom of the hull and the boat’s rudder. They work by feeding water to the cat’s engine and its tuned exhaust. Keeping operating temperatures down is vital for safe and optimal operation.

  • Spektrum™ DX2E Transmitter

The Zelos G Catamaran comes with a Spektrum™ DX2E transmitter. It’s a quality controller with adjustable endpoints and an extended range. It also includes a built-in lost signal fail-safe feature for added protection. The radio system uses a waterproof Spektrum MR4000 receiver.

This boat is not for the faint-hearted, and it’s not suitable for novice users. The engine must be broken in first. Although that’s not difficult, problems do arise out of impatience and ignorance. Engines—unlike electric power—need maintenance and tweaking to perfection. There are safety issues to consider as well. These things are only negatives for the inexperienced RC boater.

  • 4. Pro Boat RTR Blackjack 24” Brushless RC Cat

Pro Boat RTR Blackjack 24” Brushless RC Cat

Editor’s Rating: 4.3/5

This RC fast cat is the ready to run (RTR) RC Blackjack 24” brushless catamaran. It’s a fun boat for use on ponds and lakes that leaves plenty of waves in its wake.

  • Best feature 1: Ready to run (RTR) catamaran
  • Best feature 2: Powerful 2000Kv brushless water-cooled motor
  • Plus points: Off-set rudder system, 1-piece electronics tray, waterproof electronics, drain plug
  • Minus points: Potentially loose parts, short running time
  • Pro Boat 24” Blackjack Highlights

Pro Boat’s lightweight RTR 24” Blackjack is ready to go right out of its box. Its blood red paint job and streamline design give it an eye-catching appearance. It can pack a punch on the water too, capable of top speeds around 30 mph (48 km/h). The power comes from a water-cooled 2000Kv brushless motor and 30A LiPo compatible ESC. Blackjack’s 2.4GHz radio system is a Spektrum™ STX FHSS.

An off-set high-strength rudder system provides the boat with outstanding stability on the water. The Blackjack has waterproof electronics and a convenient one-piece electronics tray. Other feature highlights include a handy drain plug and a waterproof hull-mounted steering servo.

This catamaran is ready to run (RTR), but there are some reports of loose parts. New users should always check for any looseness with this and any RC boat before running it. The other, more predictable con, is the short running time. How long you get depends on the battery (not included). Even so, the boat’s unlikely to go for much more than 10 minutes on a single charge.

  • 5. Rage RTR RC B1207 Super Catamaran Boat

Rage RTR RC B1207 Super Catamaran Boat

Editor’s Rating: 4.6/5

This model is the Rage RC B1207 Super Catamaran. It’s a 100% factory assembled ready to run (RTR) RC SuperCat. The model comes equipped with a 2CH, 2.4GHz radio system.

  • Best feature 1: Durable unibody ABS hull
  • Best feature 2: Fully proportional throttle and steering control
  • Plus points: Stainless steel parts, brushless power system, wooden display stand
  • Minus points: Few reviews
  • Rage B1207 Catamaran Highlights

The Rage RC B1207 SuperCat has a sleek design with an aggressive trim. It boasts a durable unibody ABS hull, stainless-steel propeller, and rudder. Users get plenty of adrenaline-pumping wave-making fun on the water too. Top speeds can reach up to 40 mph (64 km/h) in the right conditions.

High performance and smooth handling add further to the SuperCat’s appeal. We have the 2000kV water-cooled brushless motor and 40A water-cooled ESC to thank for that. And the boat’s fully proportional throttle and steering control keep you firmly in the driving seat. Some call it the water rocket, and it’s a deserved nickname too. Check out some of the video demonstrations.

This model doesn’t have much real user feedback at the time of writing. Many less experienced buyers rely on owner reviews as part of the decision-making process. Veteran RC boaters are in a better position to make informed choices based on personal experience.

  • 6. Pro Boat UL-19 Brushless Fast Hydroplane Cat

Pro Boat UL-19 Brushless Fast Hydroplane Cat

Editor’s Rating: 4.7/5

Another Pro Boat model gets the sixth slot. This time it’s the UL-19, a 30 inch brushless hydroplane. OK, so it’s not a true cat, but its super-fast performance and airfoil hull are sure to interest some.

  • Best feature 1: Lightweight, durable design with vertical fins
  • Best feature 2: Brushless power system
  • Plus points: Hand-laid fiberglass, breakaway rudder, Spektrum™ 3KG servo, metal parts
  • Minus points: Gets hot fast, short run time
  • Pro Boat UL-19 Cat Highlights

You often read comments like adrenaline-pumping and heart-pounding, but in this case, it’s true. Pro Boat’s UL-19 is an incredible vessel that runs as fast as its sleek design suggests. This puppy can reach speeds up to 50+ mph on 6S power due to its 6 pole water-cooled motor and the 120A ESC. Drivers get to experience fast, confident cornering thanks to the waterproof Spektrum™ 3KG servo.

The UL-19 hydroplane is a lightweight yet stable boat on the water. The boat’s canopy and hull use hand-laid fiberglass in the build for added strength. It has removable/replaceable vertical fins and a breakaway rudder. The model also uses metal for its vital components. They include the aluminum rudder, stainless steel 2-blade prop, aluminum propeller strut, and a stainless-steel turn fin.

The electronics tend to get overly hot even at slower speeds. You’d expect that with flat-out racing for long durations, but not at half throttle. Yes, the Pro Boat UL-19 can run on a 6S battery setup, but it won’t serve you well in the longer term. Ideally, the 2-3S 5000mAh 50C LiPo is certain to increase component life. Running time depends on the setup, but it’s going to be in single digits in all cases.

  • 7. Traxxas Red DCB M41 Brushless Catamaran

Traxxas Red DCB M41 Brushless Catamaran

Editor’s Rating: 4.5/5

Meet the Traxxas Red DCB M41. It’s a powerful brushless catamaran capable of reaching speeds up to 50 mph (80 km/h) on 6S power. The designer of this beauty is DCB or Dave’s Custom Boats.

  • Best feature 1: Wide physique catamaran
  • Best feature 2: Precision sculpted 1350 Mercury racing engines
  • Plus points: Ultra-fast, versatile, low voltage safety, adjustable battery trays, electronics tray
  • Minus points: Needs upgrades for optimal performance, high price tag
  • Traxxas Red DCB M41 Cat Highlights

The Traxxas Red DCB M41 twin hull catamaran is a beast outdoors that’s fast and versatile. It’s a stable performer too whether it’s racing across waves or smoother water. The included advanced TQi receiver, and 2.4GHz transmitter allows captains to fine-tune their boat. The incredible power comes from a pair of precision sculpted 1350 Mercury racing engines.

Let’s look at some of the other feature highlights. The adjustable battery trays with hook-and-loop straps are useful. You can adapt them to use with various Traxxas LiPo or NiMH batteries. The cat is compatible for use with 6S LiPos with integral low-voltage detection. There’s a removable electronics tray and a waterproof receiver box that are easy to access for maintenance.

It’s a beautiful boat and a great performer, but it does need upgrades for optimal performance. The stock cooling is one, and the stock plastic props don’t hold out too well either. Some users complain about the thin plastic hull as well. Despite that, I haven’t come across any reports of the hull breaking up. The cost of a Traxxas Red DCB M41 is quite high, but most fans think it offers excellent value.

Radio control boats compared to other RC models

With hobby-quality radio control boats, sometimes referred to as remote control boats, you can do most of the same things that you can do with RC cars. You can run them for fun, race them, admire their scale looks, and add option parts to increase their performance.

The main difference is that you don’t run your RC boat on land. That’s what makes them so popular and exciting. Picture yourself at the lake on a sunny afternoon, racing your remote control boat through the shimmering water with a broad wake and tall rooster tail behind it. Or maybe you'd prefer to gently glide along with a remote control sailboat. There’s nothing else in the RC hobby like it.

The only special requirement is that you need a body of water large enough for the RC marine model you own, without strong currents and relatively free of limbs, grasses, and other obstacles that could snag it. If your RC boat does get stuck away from shore or runs out of power in the middle of the lake, you may need access to a jon boat or other safe way to retrieve it.

Otherwise, piloting your own RC boat is as easy as driving an RC car. And just like RC cars, radio control boats are available in a wide range of styles, sizes, skill levels, completion levels, and prices. Horizon Hobby® has one that’s perfect for every interested hobbyist.

Types of RC boats

Radio control electric boats are available in many styles. Tunnel hull and hydroplane RC boats are among the fastest, with flat bottoms that skim across smooth water with little resistance when up to speed. For rougher conditions, the V-shaped hull of deep vee RC boats is best. Though not quite as fast, a deep vee can cut more easily through choppy water. Electric RC boats come in many sizes, including mini, which can be run in swimming pools or small ponds. The jet pump propelled Pro Boat® Jet Jam™ mini RC boat is a blast in water only three inches deep!

Powered by wind like their full-size counterparts, RC sailboats are great for beginners and economical, too. They provided unlimited run time as long as there’s a breeze. You might think of sailboats as elegant and leisurely paced, but there are also RC racing sailboats for modelers who crave speed.

Scale RC boats prioritize realism over speed. They still perform well, but their owners pay close attention to recreating the full-scale subjects accurately. The Dumas® Creole Queen scale steamboat kit features a motor-powered paddle wheel and includes three pages of decals.

RC airplane pilots can make an easy transition into boating with an RC airboat. These use the same power plants and propellers as RC aircraft. The engine mounts on a pedestal at the back of the boat and the force of the spinning prop pushes the boat across the water.

Remote control boats in kit form or ready-to-run (RTR

Like other categories of radio control models, RC boats can be purchased ready-to-run (RTR) with most or all accessories included, or as kits that usually require assembly, power systems, and radio equipment.

Many ready-to-run RC boat models have molded ABS plastic hulls and decks that are already joined at the factory. The motor and running hardware are usually also installed. RC boats with ABS hulls tend to be among the most affordable, but speed and performance are still impressive. With optional accessories, the Pro Boat Blackjack™ [link https://www.horizonhobby.com/product/blackjack-42-8s-brushless-catamaran-rtr/PRB08043.html] with ABS hull can go 30 mph or more.

Factory-built RC boats are also available with preformed fiberglass hulls. Fiberglass boats are more expensive due to the amount of work required by the manufacturer (the reinforcing fiberglass material must be saturated with a liquid resin and then applied to the boat hull mold). This construction is usually found on high-performance RC boats like the Pro Boat UL-19 Hydroplane , whose speed can exceed 50 mph.

Scale RC boat kits often feature wooden hulls. Though among the least expensive boat models, wooden boat kits also require the most work to complete. Many wood planks must be fitted onto the hull framework and then finished with paint or resin to ensure the hull is watertight.

The RC boat you choose will determine what else you’ll need to buy. Most ready-to-run (RTR) RC boats available from Horizon Hobby include a 2-channel radio system, motor, and ESC. You might need to provide your own suitable battery pack and battery charger. Read the product descriptions to learn what is and is not included with the RC boat you’ve chosen, and for recommended completion items.

You’ll find that the internal design of a typical electric RC boat is pretty simple. The motor is located near the front of the boat. It’s connected to a drive shaft that runs toward the back of the boat and out through the bottom of the hull. The boat’s propeller is at the end of the shaft, submerged in the water. A servo-activated rudder positioned just behind the propeller enables you to steer.

RC boats often use water cooling to keep their motor and ESC from overheating. These components are wrapped with coils of aluminum tubing, and the coils are connected to a water pickup at the bottom of the hull. As the boat moves forward, water is forced into the pickup and through the coils to provide cooling.

The electronics used in RC boats are highly water-resistant, but the boat manufacturer may recommend additional steps to seal out water for additional protection. You should also be aware that most remote control boats should not be used in saltwater. Unlike freshwater, saltwater can cause rust and other damage to delicate electronic parts.

Check out all of the great RC boats available at Horizon Hobby as well as our wide selection of boat accessory items and replacement parts from Pro Boat , Spektrum™ and Dynamite®.
