Rc Racing Boats

Vroom, vroom with RC Racing Boats!

RC racing boats are one of the most coveted sub-categories of RC boats that are sold in stores today. Fast, sleek and extremely beautiful, these RC racing boats are built for speed. Primarily for those looking to participate in competitions, RC racing boats are built for the race.

Most RC racing boats, usually preferred by serious racers, are nitro-based models. The concept is simple - the most powerful engines get you the fastest times. However, competition racing is never unequally organized and all teams are meant to race on the basis of the category they fall under. This means that there is a separate category for electric RC racing boats, gas-powered, nitro-powered and even RC sailboats.

While most RC racing boats used to come with single motors, the trend has changed as multiple motors drive these mean machines today. The most common combination is a dual-motor system that sends out twice the power, helping the RC racing boats reach a speed of upto 60kmph at times.

Most RC racing boats aren't too big in size as that can easily minimize their maneuverability at low speeds. Instead, they are built to be agile and fast, with aerodynamic bodies that cut through the water & air alike.

While the less complex models are perfectly at ease with the two-channel radio controllers, you will need something more than that if you are looking for high-end RC racing boats. Almost all RC racing boats are coloured bright colours, just like their real life cousins.

There is a huge difference, though, between fast RC boats and RC racing boats. A fast RC boat can be anything that is fast, such as a boat with an outboard motor. However an RC racing boat is seriously fast and we mean, nitro-fueled, dual-engine, twin propellers, sleek body, minimal water-contact while running and absolutely excess weight or unnecessary glitter.

RC racing boats require a lot of maintenance, pre- and post-race to ensure that they continue to run in that fashion, every time they hit the water. While the basic cleaning techniques are always valid, people will devise their own strategies based on their experiences in handling their RC racing boats.

The world of RC racing boats is exciting, fast-paced and an absolute thrill-a-minute ride. There is no doubt that if you ever step into this sport, you will fall in love with RC racing boats.
