Pro Boat Veles 29" Version 2 Catamaran Brushless Electric RC Speed Boat
Pro Boat Veles 29" Brushless Catamaran RTR
The Veles 29-inch Catamaran looks as good as it performs. It has much in common with the Blackjack 29 but has some new tricks up its sleeve-including an all-new hull and a 6-pole 2000Kv motor that is more efficient and powerful. On 4S Li-Po, the motor can propel the boat to 45+ miles per hour. With 6S power, this boat can hit speeds of 50+ miles per hour. The Veles 29 has an anodised, inline, adjustable propeller strut, offset rudder with water pick up, and stainless steel propeller. This boat is responsive and predictable, making it easy to drive. Whether this is your first RC watercraft or you've been driving boats for years, you'll love the speed, power and handling of this slick catamaran.
Laid in three layers of fibreglass and hardened with high-strength resin, the hull and canopy are built to last! The hull's stiffness allows it to be more predictable-it deforms far less than heat-moulded hulls and can withstand speeds in which most heat-moulded hulls would fold. Fibreglass constructed hulls are built for performance, just like the real boats you see racing offshore.
The new hull design features redesigned, stepped ride pads like real 1:1 catamarans. These steps give the boat a smoother ride along the water and ultimately provide more precise steering responses. The hull's design merges the best features of Pro Boat models such as the Miss Geico and Blackjack 29. The canopy has four thumbscrews that secure the hatch in case of a crash.
Thanks to the interior's composite material, there's no need for an inner wood structure. To remove the interior, simply unbolt it for servicing.
This powerful 36x56 mm motor features the same Kv as the motors of our other 29-inch boats, but offers more speed on less voltage when paired with the new stainless steel propeller included with the boat. As a result, you no longer need to run 6S power to get 6S speeds.
The adjustable aluminium propeller strut lets you completely tune your boat for optimal performance in changing water and wind conditions. The flat bottom on the propeller strut acts like a trim tab and makes adjustments much more precise. With the new propeller strut, even small adjustments go a long way.
The Veles uses a break-away rudder to safeguard the rudder and transom from floating objects or in the event the boat runs onshore. In addition, the water inlet helps cool the electronics even at low speeds and increases flow with forward momentum.
The 3-channel SLT3 transmitter offers all you need for dependable, confident control. User-adjustable features include steering and throttle trims, steering rate, and throttle limits. The control layout is amazingly intuitive — all controls are perfectly positioned to be quickly accessible when needed and out of the way when not in use. The SLT3 transmitter's overall low weight lets you drive all day without fatigue. Its steering wheel is foam-covered for a no-slip grip. There's also a handy mount for attaching a lanyard, so you can focus on driving without worrying about dropping and damaging your radio.
The high-torque steering servo offers peace of mind because the boat will stay in the direction you point it despite tricky water conditions.
