Rc Jet Skis
Something different - RC Jet Skis!
RC jet skis are a great way to expand your RC collection. Available in electric and nitro powered versions, RC jet skis can be bought from a large number of sources, such as local hobby shops or even from the Internet. RC jet skis make perfect gifts for kids and adults, and are often used in racing events.
RC electric jet skis are ideal for novice RC enthusiasts, as it is less complicated than the RC nitro jet skis. They also give speeds up to 30kmph, making them ideal racing machines. You can spend hours racing with friends and family with RC jet skis; just make sure there are no swimmers in the area while you do so. RC nitro jet skis are the faster versions, but are more complicated due to the use of special nitro fuel, a glow plug igniter, and as many as 12 AA batteries, whereas a RC electric jet ski needs about 8 AA batteries. This may vary depending on the model you are purchasing.
RC jet skis can be bought from a large variety of places, such as hobby shops, dedicated RC shops, toy shops and even from the Internet. The internet is the biggest resource for RC enthusiasts, as it not only provides a large selection of RC items to choose from, you can also gather a lot of information on where to buy, and other tips and tricks related to RC jet skis.
Ready to Run model kits are best for starting RC enthusiasts or kids, as they come with all parts assembled and ready to use. Before you make a purchase make sure you check whether items such as the battery pack and charger, in case of electric jet skis, are included with the kit. Usually you have to buy extra accessories required with nitro jet skis separately. This includes the nitro fuel, the fuel bottle and of course the batteries.
Another point every RC jet ski owner should remember is that these machines tend to capsize easily, so avoid running them too far away from the shore. This may make it difficult to retrieve them later. Now apart from ready to run versions, you can also purchase building kits for your RC jet skis. This can be a fun project for the entire family, though you should keep small children away, as the small parts can be dangerous for them.
Comparatively, RC jet skis kits are not very popular, as they are not great fun to build. This is mainly due to the lack of possibilities in terms of power and capacity to handle very high speeds or rough terrain, unlike RC airboats or RC cars or trucks even. But nevertheless, purchasing an RC jet ski is sure to open endless possibilities for the entire family, from just plain skimming on the water to hardcore racing with other RC jet skis.
