Sailboats receive their power from the force of the wind. A large sail catches the wind and moves it forward in the same manner as a full-size sailboat. R/C sailboats come in a range of sizes, from less than twenty inches in length to 40 inches long. And its mast can tower up to a whopping 79 inches (over 6 feet) above the water!
Powered R/C Boats
.Wind power is the only choice for sailboats. But, when choosing a powered boat you have a few choices to make. Should you go with an electric motor, a glow engine or a gas engine?
·An electric motor is perfect for beginners. This is because they are easy to control, maintain and quite affordable. · A glow or nitro-powered motor is ideal for thrill seekers who are looking to “step up” their boating skills.
· Gas powered motors are the largest and most powerful for your R/C boat. They are less expensive to operate and maintain when compared to their nitro counterpart.
