How RC Race Boats Work?

RC race boats have been a phenomenal development by the sports enthusiasts. Have you ever wondered that how it works and what are the basic controls? Well this post tries to explain the basic mechanisms of RC Race Boats. RC race boats use different types of engines to propel the boat. The power is used to drive the boat using aircraft propeller, jet propeller or jet to provide thrust to the boat. Typical Radio Controlled Race boats will have a multi-channel radio transmitter in the hands of the operator with a corresponding receiver in the boat. While changing the position of the joysticks on the transmitter signals are sent over to two separate channels on a single radio frequency. On the boat, the radio receiver is connected to two battery powered electric motors. Signals from the radio transmitter are interpreted by the radio receiver and translated into instructions to change the position of the battery powered electric motors. One such electric motor controls the amount of air fuel mixture for optimum performance, while the other controls the depth or angle of thrust of surface piercing propeller.

Types of RC Race Boats Propulsion System:

Such boats normally three types of propulsion systems. They are as under:-
a. Fast Electric system. RC race boats have the capability of achieving a maximum speed of 50 mph and remains running for 10 mins on average.
b. Internal combustion engines.
c. Steam powered engines.
