Brushless Mini Hydroplane

May 31, 2013 No Comments by

AquaCraft’s new GP-1 Ultra brushless mini hydroplane is available in two versions. One version is RTR with a pre-installed 2200kV inrunner brushless marine motor and water-cooled LiPo-compatible 30A brushless ESC. Simply add your choice of 3S LiPo, charge it with your favorite charger, and slap in 4 AA batteries into the radio and you are ready to hit the water. In the Rx-R version no radio system is supplied so you can opt to install your existing radio components before you crash some waves. Read the full press release below for more information:

As the first AquaCraft mini hydroplane that’s both brushless AND LiPo-ready, the GP-1 Ultra one-ups the compact racing boat competition! Power is provided by a water-cooled 6-pole inrunner brushless marine motor; the RTR’s Tactic SLT radio offers confident control. A unique “break-away” rudder system swings back upon underwater impact to prevent hull damage. The GP-1
Ultra comes factory-finished, in your choice of ready to run (RTR) and Receiver-Ready (Rx-R) versions.
