Remote Control Boat Racing in Indiana and Kentucky

R/C Boat Racing

Radio controlled model boats vary in size, engine displacement and hull types.  Speeds range from 45 mph for a typical 3.5cc Outboard Tunnel boat, which are ideal for beginners, to nearly 95 mph for the larger classes of hydroplanes.  The 1/8 Scale Hydroplanes are miniature versions of Unlimited Hydroplanes and must be built to scale and must bear the same paint schemes to make them look as realistic as possible while racing.  Races are won by accumulating points in heats that consist of 6 laps around a marked course.  Go to our About page to learn more.
