Kingsbury waterpark model boat club.

Electric Chamionships 2020.

Modified Class:

Two races, consisting of 11 laps and run once a month.

With boats of any size, material, style and any size electric motor, speed controller and running gear. You just know this is the playboys and girls championship, with an equal chance of damaging your wallet as your boat, but the racing is fast, FAST and the competitive spirit flows free. Oh yes follow those peacock plumes zooming across the lake (we feel for you Pauline). Racing incidents and pilot error give those more strategic racers the opportunity to hold back from the pack leaders and then nip past when it all goes wrong. The tortoise and the hare spring to mind, Everyone has fun with typical “racing driver” excuses, that's what it's all about, fun, fun, fun and the clubs camaraderie shining through so everyone goes home with a big smile.

"Out of the box", homogenized Class:

Two races, consisting of 10 laps and run once a month. Using a standard out of the box boat. The Volantexrc Vector PRO Angry Shark running a 3 cell lipo.  This seems to be the boat at the moment but watch this space.  An homoginized boat offers challenging performance, speed and most importantly thrill's and spills. Whilst maintaining reliability.  With everybody running the same kit, it all comes down to you the pilot.  The out of the box philosophy keeps the cost down, the racing incredibly close and exciting. Perfect for new racers to throw their hat into the ring and go for glory.

  • Batteries are limited to two LiPo 3S, (3 cell) batteries in parallel.
  • Propeller can be any material, size or pitch but must be 2 blade.
  • The boat lid or hull can be painted to help identify the boat when racing.
