Remote control (RC) boating offers modelers a relaxing RC experience while delivering a satisfying rush. These model boats can achieve speeds of 100 mph or more, and unlike helicopters or planes which require a minimum of four channels to attain controlled flight, RC boats need just two channels, throttle and left-right directional stability. This makes RC boating easily accessible, as most can drive a model boat on the first attempt. In the never ending quest for more speed, many hobbyists modify and tweak their boats to run as fast as possible.
Replace the stock factory propeller with a larger, more-efficient sport prop for your motor. The more water the prop can move the more thrust it will deliver. In addition, aftermarket props are typically made of high-strength lightweight materials, allowing them to spin faster and be more durable than many standard props.
Install a slightly larger motor than stock to take your boat to the next level. A boat that has a .28 cubic-inch engine can typically accept a .35 motor without any balance or weight issues.
