Ok, you are ready to buy your first RC boat and need some tips and information to help you with your decision. Well, here is my advice and hopefully some helpful hints to get you on the water with the right RC boat. The first considerations should be the amount of money you want to spend, local ordnances and excess to the body of water you will be enjoying. There are three types of RC boats four if you count gasoline powered boats but if you are a beginner, this is not the boat for you. RC electric boats are best for the beginner, they are easy to put together, inexpensive, and very important in some areas noise free. RC nitro boats are the fastest racing RC boats that you can buy but they are more expensive, require more maintenance and are well known and liked for the noise they produce! If you passion is sail boats then a RC Sail boat is right for you. Peaceful and quiet Beautiful to the eye, there is nothing like a great day of sailing on your local waters. There are many variations in body style and body types to complement these power modes.
Most ready to run (RTR) rc boats come complete with a 2-channel radio control system. This is known as an accessory. There are two types of transmitter; a stick transmitter where the eft (up/down) lever controls the speed and the right (left/right) lever controls the rc boat's direction and the pistol type, where the throttle is controlled by the gun type trigger, and the boat's direction controlled by the wheel. It’s your choice, I prefer the stick transmitter but others rave about the pistol type. If you plan to run in choppy water conditions get a Deep V or mono hull RC boat. They are more stable and take on rough water better than a catamaran or hydroplane hull design which is designed for speed and calm water conditions. If you want to buy a high quality boat from a reliable company, I would recommend CEN Racing, Megatech and Traxxas. Their RC boats are similar in price and are truly quality RC models.
It’s your decision, hope this helps!
