If you love the thrill of NASCAR then you will love the excitement you get from racing RC boats. If you do competition racing then your thrills will triple. If you’ve always wanted to sit in the seat of a racing boat then having you very own RC speed boat will take you to the top.
You don’t even have to like to be on a boat or even like being on the water to start your boat racing career or some people call it a hobby. You can get caught up in the pleasure of racing RC boats as it beats out every other boat on the water. You can feel the power of your boat as it races by you while leaving the other in its rooster tail. However, before you can start racing a radio controlled boat you need to know some of the rules of RC competition racing.
What you need to start racing RC boats
These small racing RC boats can handle turns and speeds the big boat just can’t — no matter how much you deck them out with modifications. Radio controlled boats handle well, have tons of speed, and give you hours of enjoyment and challenge. To start racing a boat you need a remote control boat, of course, plus all the tools to take care of it when it breaks down.
You also need to know the rules to racing RC boats. Depending on the racing club you can have destroyers or battleships, sailing boats, or speed boats with gas, nitro powered, or electric. It depends on the racing club. Most clubs have electric remote control boats but there are others who like the battleship and aircraft carriers. Either model of boat you choose will still give you lots of fun.
What you need to know to start racing RC boats
The rules are pretty simple – follow the rules and regulations of the RC boats club. Each club will have its own rules for you to follow but most of them don’t allow for an external power source and must have an electrical power system built-in. Other clubs will allow for some massive modification to your mini racing boat while others still will have the most unusual (and unfair) rules you must follow. You can be disqualified or lose your win and have to take another place such as third place or lower. Just remember to follow the clubs rules and you’ll have hours of exciting fun racing your RC boat.
There are quite a few different speed boats on the market to choose from such as electric boats small enough to fit in your hand to over 30 inches long. Of course, it depends on the type, model, and size you want and what type of racing you want to do. There are clubs that race boats for fun with no contests except between boaters. There are others that have competitions that involve money and/or prizes. Again, it depends on the clubs in your area. Whatever type of racing they have you can’t beat the thrill of racing your RC speed boat across the finish line. You will have hours of fun and thrills with racing RC boats.
