Gas RC Boats-The real thing

'Gas RC boats'-the term can be a cause of misunderstanding as nitro powered remote control boats are sometimes called gas powered RC boats while, if we speak technically, they are powered by nitro methane fuel. A gas RC boat uses two cycle or stroke gas engine and it is quite similar in design to the engine present in the normal tools used in gardens for instance trimmer and edger. Gas-powered RC boats are usually bigger in size than the nitro powered boats because the engine of gas boats is physically larger in size.

Bigger boats are always center of attention and catch the eyes at the lake or pond. The real groaning of the engine, the smell of gasoline, the beautiful wake and the water splashing because of the speed all together make the beauty, and the scene is enhanced to amaze people when your boat jumps on water while making its move. The engine of such boats comes to be a lot cheaper to work and maintain in longer run specially if you are going to upgrade it and the gas engines are always readily available. They run low on gasoline as they require a low cost mix of oil and gasoline as compared to high cost nitro methane required for nitro rc boat engines. Gas Rc boats use engines with simple starting mechanism of pull string and are quite simple to maintain too. The revolutions per minute for a big gasoline engine are lower than a nitro boat engine and that is why the gas engine parts last great deal longer which makes it more reliable. Even if a certain part fails, it can be replaced with ease as all spare parts are readily available in the market.

7 Reasons To Buy a Gas Powered RC Boat
1. Gas powered RC boats are cheaper as compared to other versions of RC boats like electric RC boats and Nitro engine powered RC Boats.

2. Gas powered boats are easy to maintain even by a domestic user.

3. Gas powered boats can be operated by anyone starting from a school going boy to an old man.

4. Gas powered boats are cheaper as far as refueling is concerned, while other versions are either propelled by expensive fuels or short lived batteries.

5. Gas operated boats can achieve an average speed of 45-60 mph depending upon the operator.

6. Gas operated boats provide an easy propulsion as it utilizes a unique weed eating motor which sails it through easily.

7. Gas operated boats are best suited for competitions.

Safety precaution for a Gas Powered RC Boat
1. If you are to operate your boat in an area where there are other RC boats in operation, must check your radio frequency. Make sure that you are not operating on a frequency that is already being used by another hobbyist.

2. Must do a range check. Once you desire to check your transmitter and radio controls and verify that they are operating correctly, must have an assistant stand at a safe distance from the boat and then turn on the radio transmitter.

3. While your assistant works the controls, make certain that the electric motors are receiving a signal and operating properly. If you get a good signal during your test, with the antenna collapsed, you're not likely to get into problems when your gas powered RC boats are on the water.

4. Never operate your gas powered RC boats around swimmers.

5. Never operate them in close proximity of real boats.

6. Never operate RC speed boats without some sort of recovery system. Do not swim yourself to retrieve a boat in dangerous or frigid water as your life is much precious then a RC Boat.

7. Whenever operating any RC model boats, including gas powered RC boats, you should switch on the radio transmitter first (before you switch on any receivers) and then subsequently it should be the last thing you switch off.

Gas rc boats are the real things out there for serious hobbyists. Though you can start up with a smaller size electrical propelled rc boats which are easier to maintain. But gas powered rc boats are the ones to go after when you require something closer to actual rc boats.
