Finally, spring has arrived and RC boating season has begun. RC boating you say? Yes, RC boating! RC boating is not for everyone but it is growing in popularity with RC hobbyist as technology continues to make RC boats more reliable, easer to operate with more choices available than ever before. We had beautiful weather yesterday, with little wind so, I decided to go out and run on the lake with my RC boats. During these long winter months, I have done the proper maintenance, see http://www.rc-carsinfogarage.com/rc/498-caring-for-your-rc-boats/ and replaced or upgraded some of the batteries. This made any break in the weather welcomed for some long awaited check out runs. What a day, all boat systems were functioning properly and I had a chance to show of a bit with my Aquacraft Super Vee 27 RC (vee hull) RTR and Traxxas Villain EX RC electric race boat. With the admiration came questions and one that I was trilled to answer since, I love talking RC. The question, what are your favorite RC boats?As I reflected over the years of RC boating enjoyment, it was easy to conclude that today’s RC boats have to be among my favorite choices. Ok, here we go.
Aquacraft Super Vee 27 (vee hull) RTR= Brushless electric. Out of the box it will run 30+ mph. comes with Grimracer hardware. With a few modifications, new prop and good batteries and a scuffed hull bottom) you can reach a speed of 40+ mph.
Aquacraft Miss Vegas Hydro (Hydro boat style hull) RTR = Nitro boat. The U-18 get’s you ready race-ready fast and delivers mind blowing speed and style! Aquacraft makes it also comes with Grimracer hardware.
Traxxas Villian (Vee hull) RTR = Brushed electric. Ok boat from what I've heard but it nowhere near as fast as the SV 27. Twin motors that are counter rotating so the boat is pretty stable.
Aquacraft Nitro Hammer (vee hull) RTR = haven’t heard any reviews only people sarcastically talking about this boat, whatever they mean by it? I don't think this is faster than the SV 27? Aquacraft makes this boat;
For what it’s worth, these are my selections; I hope this helps you in your search for an RC boat. Remember these are hobby grade boats that demands your attention. If you are looking for a toy RC boat, then these recommendations are not for you. Go to a toy store and buy a plastic boat that looks like a Fountain or Donzi? You'll still be at or below your budget and have a boat that looks good. Not fast though. I not trying to discourage you, I am just relaying some real time facts.
