Rc Scale Boats
The World of RC Scale Boats is quite vast!
RC scale boats are a sub-category of RC Boats that deal with replica or scale models of real-life versions. RC scale boats are available in all RC Hobby Shops, toy or RC stores and are amongst the most popular choice of RC model boats today. If you want to amaze your friends with a special RC model boat that looks absolutely astounding, then RC scale boats is the way to go.
You have various categories of RC scale boats to choose from, based on what their real-life versions are meant for. RC Battleships is a popular category amongst hobbyists as these RC scale boats contain a lot of detailing, down to the last degree. In some cases, you can even buy a RC Warship that has moving gun-turrets, lighting on the insides, aircraft carriers with planes & personnel on deck, lifeboats or anchors that can be deployed and much more.
Depending on the kind of money you are looking to spend, you can even expand these RC scale boats to incorporate the latest in laser-gun turrets to allow war-like combat on the water. These guns are fitted onto your RC scale boat, usually a battleship model that's large enough to hold them. They can be controlled separately and fired, sending a low frequency laser onto the target. All RC Ships, in such competitions, carry a receiver which picks up these frequencies. If the laser is directed onto the ship, it is counted as a 'hit'. Receive too many hits and these receivers will render your boat immovable, temporarily, denoting a sunken ship.
If war-games aren't really your style, then you have the option of other RC scale boats such as those of ocean liners. The Queen Elizabeth or Queen Mary or even the Titanic are popular options that come with all kinds of jazz. These liners are built to scale, meaning you will have everything, including the on-board activities that would be visible on these ships, on them. So, you can actually own an ocean liner with on-deck pools, dance floors, sun-decks, radars that work and a lot more.
Most RC scale boats popularly used in competition are those of the racing variety. These boats are designed and shaped to be like F1 boats or jet crafts that are used in competitive sports. Like their real-life cousins, these RC scale boats are also known for their speed and maneuverability. Hitting speeds upto 40kmph, these RC scale boats can be quite a handful for those who have little or no experience in running RC boats.
If you are looking for something milder, you can always try the range of hovercrafts or swamp boats that are also based on real-life versions. Swamp boats are quite popular due to their design and like those that are seen on the swamps of Florida, USA, these RC scale boats will also have moving rudders, personnel on the boat as well as all the parts that are associated with them.
RC scale boats allow you to take your hobby to a whole new level. More expensive than regular RC boats, you will find them extremely pleasing to look at. If you are building one on your own, then there is no greater thrill as you will be putting together each part to build a famous water-going craft.
So the next time you feel like you would want to see the Bismarck in real life, go ahead and get yourself RC scale boats.
