Power Boat Racing and Power Boat Plans

Bangkok and the surrounding areas has a busy race schedule - almost every weekend there is a boat racing event within a hours drive, from 26cc to small electric the competition is fierce and at international standard. The atmosphere is very friendly and everybody has time to speak to you and you are made to feel very welcome when you go to an event

There is a wide range of hulls at competitions - hand carved foam hulls, painted balsa right up to the new full carbon fiber composite hulls and a similar spread of motors and engines and the open races end with some suprizing results - there really is no substitute for skill in driving (or flying) one of these boats in a race

As yet there are no noise restrictions on RC engines - it can be very load at a race meet but it does add to the fun - it has been said that if you have your fingers in your ears it stops you smoking, drinking beer and over eating.

Thai Longtail Stepped Hydroplane

A model of the Thai style longtail drag boats

These small boats are very fast and are raced in monthly competitions around Bangkok. The general rules all boats are the used of brushed 400 motors with no more that 12 NiCads and No proportional RC control - on off speed control and steering by left or right hand prop full on. These controls are similar to the cheap Chinese Deep V boats. The restrictions are enforced so the all contestants are on a level field and the winner is the one with the best ability to trim the boat and operate the controls - not somebody that has invested the most money in the kit.

I have been to several of these meets and the atmosphere is great and extremely competitive
