Rc Pirate Ships
Huge Fun with RC Pirate Ships!
RC pirate ships are an age-old genre of radio controlled ships that has come through the generations. Always a favourite amongst fans of these bad boys of the seas, RC pirate ships have found many warm homes ready to welcome them happily. Mostly built and sold as replicas of movie and cartoon pirate ships, these RC ships look nothing less than the real deal themselves.
There is little doubt that almost everyone who has ever seen the movie, wanted to be in the shoes of Captain Jack Sparrow and commandeer the Black Pearl. However, since that was a movie and the Black Pearl was, in fact, just a model, why not head down to the hobby store and get the next best thing? An RC pirate ship or better still, a radio controlled model of the Black Pearl!
You are fascinated by pirates and the whole dream of running up that Jolly Roger and shouting those battle cries. However, the small pond near your lake and, in all likelihood, your family members will mind if you decided to make such a career change. In any case, you can always come back home with a RTR, almost RTR or a model kit of an RC pirate ship and run it to your heart's content.
There are numerous models to choose from and while most manufacturers tend to stick to popular movie replicas, primarily for their saleability, there are those who choose to make original designs as well. If you are looking for an RC pirate ship, the latter variety will be cheaper, quite good to look at and also do everything that the replica will.
Depending on your taste, experience and expertise with RC modelling, you can pick an RC pirate ship with an electric motor, a nitro engine or even a gas engine. While the first version will come in small sizes, you will find considerably larger RC pirate ships in the gas and nitro categories.
The amount of realism also depends on the kind of money you are willing to spend on that RC pirate ship. Usually, RTR models will be smaller and despite having a good amount of design detail, will have very little realism. If you want realism, you must be willing to invest time and effort into a model kit.
You can buy kits that raise or lower flags, hoist sales, fire cannons and emit smoke & sound, if you are really looking for something realistic. Such extravagances require you to spend more and if you have the budget, the sky's the limit.
RC pirate ships are wonderful additions to any collections. They have all the flamboyance of a galley and also give you happiness that comes from building an intricate model on your own. You will fall in love with them once you get your hands on your own RC pirate ship.
