Can RC boats go in the ocean?
RC boats can be used in the ocean, but there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. The majority of RC boats are not rated for saltwater use, because saltwater is incredibly corrosive. Even real-life boats do not fare well with all that salt and require a lot of maintenance to keep running.
How does a RC boat work?
The drive system of a typical RC boat is very simple. An electric motor near the front of the boat is connected to a shaft that runs towards the back of the boat and out through the bottom of the hull. This shaft is contained within a tube, called stuffing tube, which is filled with grease.
Can traxxas boats go in saltwater?
Your Traxxas boat will operate normally in salt water, but Traxxas strongly recommends against it because salt water is extremely corrosive. A water-displacing lubricant such as WD-40 may be applied to hardware and metal parts to help prevent corrosion.
How do I recover my RC boat?
Make a few circles around it until the ball hits the RC boat and latches on to it. Then bring your boat slowly back to shore. Another common way is by using a fishing rod. Tie the fishing line to the back of the recovery boat and drive it to the stranded boat.
