The subject of RC Boats is, to say the very least huge, however the majority of models on the market today can be slotted into one of four main categories, depending on their method of propulsion. RC Boats in the 'Sail' category rely to a large extent on the wind for movement through the water, why not visit, Remote Control Planes and the RC equipment is there purely for steering. The other three categories of RC Boat are classified according to the type of fuel used to produce movement i.e. electricity, , RC Tank Warfare nitro and gas. try, Zenoah Engines

So what types of RC Boats are popular today?

RC Yachts - yachts are possibly the most relaxing type of RC Boat to sail however there is an element of skill consider, RC Horse Racing required. You need to learn to use the wind as well of the steering mechanisms otherwise you may find yourself why not visit, RC Super Cub Planes paddling out to retrieve your boat.

Yacht models range from very basic kit models through to racing models that you build entirely yourself, look at, ESM RC Models so there is something available for all levels of modelling ability. The RC equipment required to steer most yachts is also basic, with a simple 2-channel transmitter being quite adequate. Yachts aren't the speediest type of RC Boat but then again they aren't designed to be. They are perfect for a Sunday afternoon sail down at the local checkout, RC Flying Robot lake or racing if you fancy a challenge.

RC Speed Boats - if you want an RC Boat with a bit of 'oomph' then speed boats are the way to go. Even the small, electrically powered models that come straight from the box can reach speeds of 15mph. Nitro models that are ready to run average 25-35mph while the biggest models, normally petrol driven, can run at over 50mph.

Speed boats are the perfect type of RC Boat to upgrade as well. Putting a bigger, more powerful motor in a boat can often double the speed, but you'll need to make sure the hull can take the extra power also look at, RC Pirate Ships before doing so. Speed boats are impressive wherever you run them, and as they start from very reasonable prices they make great gifts for all ages.

RC Ships - RC Boats that fall consider, RC Aerobatic Plane into this category often do so because they don't fit into any other! Examples of RC Ships include classic names such as HMS Victory and the Titanic, RC Tug Boats, RC Fishing Boat, passenger motorboats and small runabouts. Most have wooden look at, RC Flying Boat plank-on-frame constructions which makes them slightly more expensive than other types of RC Boats, but the detail they have easily makes up for the additional expense.

Again, this type of RC Boat comes ready to run in some cases and as a build-it-yourself kit in others. You can pay some companies to build the ship for you but if you can you should experience the pleasure of building look at, RC Horse Racing your ship using your own skilled hands.

RC Hovercrafts - hovercrafts are in many ways a unique form of RC Boat because the majority of models can run on different types of surface e.g. water, look at, RC Vehicles ice, soft ground, grass have a look at, Remote Control Robots etc. This effectively doubles the fun you can have with an RC Boat, and is one of the main reasons that hovercrafts are so popular.

Most RC Hovercrafts are battery powered and depending on the size of the motor they range from rather sedate through to incredibly speedy. As with most other forms of RC Boats there are beginner and advances models available, ready to run and build your own, or if you are really adventurous you can start from scratch using a detailed set of plans , RC World War II Aircraft and your own initiative.

RC Battleships - although the RC Boats in the battleship category are far from quick, they are mighty impressive...and generally very big! They are perfect for cruising around the lake and worrying those with much smaller and less powerful boats (not that you would do this being a serious RC Boat modeller).

One of the great things about RC Battleships is that they can often be upgraded or modified to fire , RC Buggies for Kids CO2 powered projectiles, which means you can really do battle in a properly prepared environment. , RC Venom VMX 450 Of course you will have to find other people willing to do battle with their battleships first. Even if this doesn't happen, battleships are still a fun pastime and a very popular type of RC Boat.
