Kazakhstan uses drones to patrol capital city Nur-Sultan during COVID-19 lockdown

Terra Drone group company KazUAV has helped Nur-Sultan police to use drones to patrol and monitor illegal border movement and slow the spread of coronavirus in Kazakhstan

Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan – April 9, 2020 – KazUAV, Kazakhstan’s leading drone service provider and a member of Japan-based Terra Drone Corporation, has been working at the frontlines to keep communities safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. Providing direct support to the operational headquarters set up to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Kazakhstan, KazUAV has been helping the Nur-Sultan Police Department to patrol the borders of the locked-down capital city with drones, ensuring ‘contactless’ surveillance and fast-paced operations.

The Central Asian nation closed its borders and locked down its main cities, including Nur-Sultan, after confirming the first coronavirus case on March 16. The oil-rich country that borders Russia and China also announced a state of emergency, set to last until April 15, adopting tough measures to combat the pandemic. Some of the guidelines put forth by the Kazakh authorities include country-wide travel restrictions, suspension of public gatherings, and implementation of stringent sanitation and anti-epidemic measures.

All entrances and exits from Nur-Sultan have been completely blocked as part of these measures, mobilizing multiple law enforcement agencies of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Armored vehicles, barriers, and concrete blocks are being used to man the movement from the surrounding villages of Talapker, Karaotkel (Ilyinka), Koyandy, Kosshy, and Zhibek-Zholy, on the Nur-Sultan-Petropavlovsk highway. And an additional post has been set up by the municipal government of the Akmola region in Shubary to ensure there are no cases of non-compliance by the Kazakh population. KazUAV has been directly involved in the collection of information, operational monitoring, and coordination of actions of the Police Department and the Coronavirus Spread Prevention Operational Headquarters for all these areas.

Using drone-mounted cameras with both visible and infrared sensors, the KazUAV team has completed hundreds of flight hours, broadcasting all captured data, as well as the exact coordinates of objects of interest, directly to the operational headquarters command center. This has led to the authorities discovering multiple bypass roads and irregularities in the locked-down area – without which, the quarantine measures could not have proven effective.

When it comes to remote monitoring of vast areas, unmanned aerial vehicles are one of the best tools available to public safety agencies today. As a leading drone service provider in Kazakhstan, KazUAV not only gave Kazakh first responders access to cutting-edge drone technology, the company also assisted the enforcement agencies with the vast experience of its team of specialists, trained to operate day and night in the toughest of weather conditions.

Dmitry Ivanov, Development Director, KazUAV, says, “As international experience has shown, restrictions introduced to prevent the spread of the coronavirus are the most effective measures to fight it. Of course, it’s hard for everyone now; it is a challenging time for each one of us. But the call to ‘stay home’ is more relevant than ever in the context of drones. We are familiar with carrying out critical tasks like monitoring floods or patrolling important events, but this was an emergency request which needed an immediate response.”

Autonomous resupply for US military is flying into reality

  • Near Earth Autonomy has developed unmanned aerial contingency management systems as part of a Joint Capabilities Technology (JCTD) Unmanned Logistics Systems Aerial (ULS-A) Demonstration.
  • Near Earth’s technology offers obstacle avoidance for safe flight and landing enabling reliable cargo delivery in dynamic environments.
  • 16 active-duty Army soldiers and Marines used Near Earth’s technology to safely execute 64 resupply missions in an operational demonstration at Fort AP Hill, Virginia.
  • The demonstration ended year 1 of the 3-year JCTD program.

Military operations depend critically on a well-functioning supply chain to bring water, food, fuel, munitions, and medical supplies to warfighters in any place and at any time. Autonomous unmanned aircraft systems will significantly impact cargo delivery by increasing logistics speed and flexibility while reducing risk and cost.

The Pittsburgh-based company, Near Earth Autonomy (Near Earth) has developed unmanned aerial contingency management systems as part of a Joint Capabilities Technology (JCTD) Unmanned Logistics Systems Aerial (ULS-A) Demonstration. Near Earth’s technology offers obstacle avoidance for safe flight and landing enabling reliable cargo delivery in dynamic environments.

In collaboration with the Army and Marines, from September 11-27, 2019 16 active-duty Army soldiers and Marines used Near Earth’s technology to safely execute 64 resupply missions in an operational demonstration at Fort AP Hill, Virginia. The demonstration ended year 1 of the 3-year JCTD program.

Joe Fagan, ULS-A Operational Manager’s describes the significance of the achievement, “This was the first opportunity for the military users to interact with the ULS-A capability. Whether they were uploading autonomy packages, downloading data, or operating as safety pilots, I was continually impressed with the breadth and depth of the Near Earth Autonomy Team.”

Robert McKinney, Technical Manager for the Unmanned Logistics Systems Air (ULS-A) JCTD, Marine Corp Warfighter Lab said, “From a logistics standpoint, the Marines are looking to deliver small to medium weight supplies like water, beans, and ammunition to forward operating bases. We’re looking at fully autonomous rather than just manually operated vehicles. Without a man in the loop, losses are minimal and there are no humans at risk.”

In time, autonomous resupply will support ground convoys and manned aircraft that today are at risk of attack when bringing warfighters the supplies they need to conduct their missions.

Master Gunnery Sergeant Ulrich said, “We can apply this capability and really help out the warfighter. I see a lot of applications in delivering in austere environments. In this way we’ll keep trucks off the road, we’ll keep Marines off the road and use technology to our advantage so that our troops can get what they need when they need it.”

The technology being used by warfighters marks a historic milestone in bringing autonomous mobility into reality for the US military. American defense leadership is actively exploring innovative new technologies that will give them a significant advantage over less advanced adversaries.

Master Gunnery Sergeant Ulrich continued, “I think the Marines are adapting to the platforms because it is generationally relevant. The Marines of today look at it as something that enables them to do their job in a streamlined way. The training is minimal enough to allow them to adapt quickly. It’s able to help them stay out of the firefight themselves and they’ve responded by executing almost flawlessly.

I see the future of ULS-A eventually evolving into a medium-size platform that’s able to provide a diverse distribution portfolio. Within the JCTD year two and three, we’ll be looking at bigger, faster, stronger, platforms, meaning more battery life, more distribution capability, and overall increasing the ability to keep the warfighter in the fight.”

The military plans to continue collaborating with Near Earth Autonomy to expand their autonomous resupply capabilities.

About Near Earth Autonomy

Not to worry – this section is dedicated to our top 5 overall picks for the best RC boats for sale. These new remote control boats are great for adults and kids alike, and are a great choice for anyone looking to find the best RC boat for the money and get into the radio control hobby.

#1. Altair AA Aqua – Best Remote Control Boat

You can find the best price on AltairAerial.com here.

The AA Aqua is a fantastic looking RC boat that really has some performance numbers to go with it. This release from Altair can reach speeds of up to 30 km/h at a range of up to 100 meters which is fantastic when you look in this price range. The boat comes loaded with features that include an Anti-Capsize Hull System that ensures if your boat flips over it will right itself in the water for you. There also is a low battery alarm and an out of range alarm just in case you lose track of how much fun you’re having.

Check out this video from Altair for the AA Aqua:

The one drawback that I found on this boat is that the battery life isn’t what I would want it to be (only 7 minutes), but they do include 2 batteries in the package so you do get almost 15 minutes of runtime before you need to re-charge both batteries.

Pair that kind of performance and top notch features with the Altair brand that is known for releasing high quality products and you have a rc boat that is one of the best bang for your buck remote control boats on the market today!

They even have an Altair Video Tutorials page that helps you get started. Email Altair Inc at help@altairaerial.com

#2. The Wave – Great Budget RC Boat

You can find the best price on Amazon.com here.

The AA Wave is Altair’s other boat to release this year and it stands a close second on our list the the AA Aqua though it’s tough to go wrong with either boat. Just like the AA Aqua, the Altair Wave features an Anti-Capsize Hull System that can self correct any time your boat flips upside down in the water.

While this boat does go slightly slower (25 km/h) than the AA Aqua, the features on the two boats remain practically identical. Again, we wish that the battery life on this product was slightly longer, but they do send an extra battery with the product and at $70 you really are going to have a hard time finding a better buy.

They even have an Altair Video Tutorials page that helps you get started. Email Altair Inc at help@altairaerial.com

AA Wave Specifications

  • • Can Reach Speeds Up to 25 km/h

#3. Traxxas Spartan – Best Professional Racing RC Boat

Read reviews and shop for the Traxxas Spartan Here

Traxxas is one of the most well-respected RC boat and car manufacturers working today. They’ve knocked it out of the park once again with their 57076 Spartan, which is one of the fastest remote control boats for sale thanks to an incredible top speed of 50 miles per hour!

How does it move so fast? Well, this is one of the new wave of brushless RC boats. Brushless motors operate more efficiently and can give the boat more power, and Traxxas’ Velineon motor is one of the best models around. Innovative design is the hallmark of every piece of this large RC speedboat, which also includes Traxxas stability management and a much better wireless connection than most other remote control boats.

There’s no denying that this is the most advanced and overall best RC boat we’ve reviewed, especially for rough waters. However, some of our readers will be turned away by the price, which is $421 before batteries and charger (which have to be purchased separately.) Still, if you have the money for it, this is a perfect boat for beginners and advanced pilots alike.

Traxxas Spartan Specifications

  • • 30-50 MPH top speed, depending on battery type
  • • 36” V-hull
  • • Low battery alarm will warn you when the boat is almost out of power
  • • Can be controlled via smartphone or radio transmitter
  • • equipped with Traxxas Stability Management
  • • Batteries and charger sold seperately

#4. UDIRC Venom

Read reviews and shop for the UDIRC Venom Here

This is a faster RC speedboat model that is really made for those that want to experience higher speeds and a lot of excitement. This cool RC boat is about a foot long and represents what people usually want most out of a modern, sleek remote control boat in the cheap price range. Some even consider it the best remote control speedboat for sale, although it’s only #2 on our list.

Users really love the low-battery alarm, which makes it so that you don’t have to worry about getting stranded way out in the middle of the body of water. It’s not recommended for use in an area that has huge waves, but the hull is overall very durable. And it controls very well, especially considering that most electric RC boats under $50…well, to put it politely, do NOT control very well.

One of the Venom’s unique features is the fact that it automatically cools its motor and prevents it from overheating using the water it sails on. This helps the boat last longer and also improves its battery life, which is among the best in its price range.

All-around, this is one of the best RC boats under $100.

UDIRC Venom Specifications

  • • 15 MPH top speed
  • • 12” V-hull
  • • Takes a 3.7 V 600Mah lithium ion battery (2 included)
  • • Low battery alarm will warn you when the boat is almost out of power
  • • ABS anti-tilt hull construction
  • • USB battery charger and cable included

#5. Force1 H102 Velocity – Best Remote Control Boat for Lakes

Read reviews and shop for the Force1 H102 Velocity Here

The Force1 H102 Velocity is a very popular remote control boat for sale – a regular Amazon best-seller with good reviews to back it up. So it’s probably no surprise that the Velocity ended up so high on our list. There’s a lot to love with this new remote control boat – it’s easy to sail, costs less than 100 dollars, and moves at a fast 20 MPH top speed.

One of the best features of the Velocity is that it’s one of the new self-righting remote control boats that are becoming more popular. This means that if it capsizes, it can automatically right itself in most circumstances. This is a great feature for beginners who are more likely to capsize, and it’s also a great RC boat for lakes! A lot of experts like this sort of feature too, because it makes it easier to recover your property and means you can use it outside of shallow water.

Force1 H102 Velocity Specifications

  • • 20 MPH top speed
  • • 13” V-hull
  • • Takes a 7.4V 600mAh Lion Battery (2 included)
  • • Features a self-righting Capsize Recovery Mode
  • • Battery charger and cable included

#6. Pro Boat Recoil

Read reviews and shop for the Pro Boat Recoil Here

The Recoil is another self-righting remote control boat for sale by Pro Boat, a company with a good reputation for customer service. It combines a lot of things we liked about other boats higher up on this list: it’s a fast boat, it’s large, and it’s a self righting RC boat. In fact, many would consider it the best beginner boat for sale. It also uses a 2950Kv brushless motor.

So what’s the catch? Well, first is the price. $180 isn’t beyond the pale, but it’s not exactly cheap, and some of these features are available in RC boats under 100. The second problem is the battery life – the Recoil only lasts 10 minutes on a single battery charge and doesn’t come with a spare.

Still, if you don’t mind springing for a few extra batteries, this is a great radio controlled boat for somebody who wants all of the latest features in a single, somewhat cheap package.

Pro Boat Recoil Specifications

  • • 25 MPH top speed
  • • 17” Deep-V hull
  • • Takes a 3S 1300mAh 11.1V LiPo Battery (1 included)
  • • 2950Kv brushless RC boat motor
  • • Battery charger included

#7. SOWOFA FT011 Ultimate Racing Boat

Read reviews and shop for the SOWOFA FT011 Here

The SOWOFA FT011, also known as the Ultimate Racing Boat, doesn’t quite live up to its name. In particular, it wouldn’t be right to mention this boat without explaining that the company behind it is a little less than ethical – the top image of this product on their Amazon page, for example, is blatantly misleading.

However, there’s still a lot to love about the FT011, which is one of the fastest and most fun remote control boats for sale. It has an incredible top speed, especially considering its large hull size. It operates on powerful brushless motors that don’t need cleaning and can self-right itself after a capsize. It also has a solid internal cooling mechanism that keeps the electronics running longer, and it’s a good thing too, because the battery life is only about 10-15 minutes. However, you can pay for a better battery and charger to upgrade this boat for not too much extra money.

In all, this is an excellent large RC boat for sale that will please hobbyists and experienced racers alike with its speed and ability. Just don’t expect a lot of post-sale customer support.

SOWOFA FT011 Specifications

  • • 50 MPH top speed
  • • 25” V-hull
  • • Takes a 14.8V 2200mA battery (1 included)
  • • Self-righting RC boat mode
  • • Brushless remote control boat motor
  • • Battery charger included

#8. Cheerwing RC Racing Boat

Read reviews and shop for the Cheerwing RC Racing Boat Here

The Cheerwing RC Racing Boat is a popular radio controlled boat because of its small size and excellent controls. Its streamlined hull and compact shape are actually specifically designed for use in smaller bodies of water such as a pond or lake.

And despite the Cheerwing’s low price it actually has decent specs, with a top speed of 15 MPH and a sailing time of 8 minutes off of only 80 minutes of charge. You might want to buy a couple spare batteries, but at least you won’t have to wait long to sail again after they’ve been spent.

This awesome RC boat for lakes is especially good for beginners, because it has self-righting capsize recovery features built right into the hull, auto-corrects its own tilt, is water-cooled, and has built-in alarms for low battery or weak signal connection. So if you’re looking for a great small RC boat that can be used in any conditions, the Cheerwing RC Racing Boat is an excellent choice.

Cheerwing Racing Boat Specifications

  • • 15 MPH top speed
  • • 13” V-hull
  • • Takes a 3.7V*2 600mAh Li-Fe battery (1 included)
  • • Self balancing stability mode

#9. Babrit F1

Read reviews and shop for the Babrit F1 Here

The Babrit F1 is a small boat that can move in any direction: forward, left, right, and reverse. Not many boats can move in reverse, and that advanced versatility makes the F1 one of the best remote control boats for lakes, because it’s easy to back away from the edge if you find yourself getting into a dangerous situation. Precise port position and self balancing sailing also keep this boat stable and upright in any condition.

The Babrit F1 is also just a good boat all around – it moves fast (but not so fast that it’s unusable in a smaller space), has a decent battery life, doesn’t cost too much and never loses signal connection. The only downside is that the transmitter range is a little short, but that really doesn’t matter in a small lake or pond. All in all, this is a great RC boat for beginners and experts (though it may find more favor with the former.)

Babrit F1 Specifications

  • • 20 MPH top speed
  • • 11” V-hull
  • • Takes a 4.8V 700 mah battery (1 included)
  • • Self balancing stability mode
  • • Moves in reverse
  • • Battery charger included

#10. Traxxas DCB M41 Catamaran – Fastest RC Motor Boat

Read reviews and shop for the Traxxas DCB M41 Catamaran Here

Now, someone’s almost certainly going to point out that technically ALL the boats we’ve reviewed so far have been remote control motor boats. That’s because all remote control boats (and remote control vehicles in general) require a motor to operate.

The Traxxas DCB M41 Catamaran, however, is the fastest RC motor boat for sale today. This is the kind of boat that you can actually use for racing, if you feel so inclined!

When you’re looking for cool RC motor boats with pure speed, there’s just no beating Traxxas. The DCB M41 twin-hull Catamaran (a term which refers to the boat’s unique shape) can go faster than 50 miles per hour thanks to a water-cooled, waterproof VXL-6s marine ESC with low-voltage protection and a Velineon 540XL brushless rc boat motor.

If that sounds like gibberish to you, here’s what you need to know: it’s fast, it’s tough (with an aluminum and stainless steel body), it has fine-tuned controls, and it moves great across smooth water. The only downside with this boat is that it’s fairly expensive and doesn’t come with batteries. But for anyone looking for one of the fastest RC motor boats around, money should be no object.

Traxxas DCB M41 Catamaran Specifications

  • • 60+ MPH top speed
  • • Takes a 6S lithium-ion polymer battery (not included)
  • • Velineon 540XL Brushless motor with high flow water-cooling jacket
  • • Blue-anodized aluminum rudder support, rudder, and drive strut
  • • Stainless steel trim tabs and hardware
  • • Battery and charger not included

If you’re interested in fast remote control motor boats but can’t afford any of the best Traxxas models, the Proboat Blackjack is a great $200 substitute. It still moves at a good speed of 30+ miles per hour thanks to a powerful brushless 2000Kv water-cooled motor and 30A Li-Po compatible ESC. An off-set rudder system provides decent stability, and the red and black design just looks great cruising along a lake or pond.

A strongly recommended motor boat for the intermediate RC boat user.

Proboat Blackjack Specifications

  • • Takes a 2S or 3S lithium-ion polymer battery (not included)
  • • 30+ MPH top speed with 3S battery
  • • Brushless RC boat 2000Kv water-cooled motor
  • • 30A Li-Po compatible ESC
  • • 2.4GHz Pro Boat radio system
  • • Battery and charger not included

#12. Flytec 3 Fishing Bait RC Boat – Best RC Pontoon Boat

Read reviews and shop for the Flytec 3 Fishing Bait RC Boat Here

An RC pontoon boat is a flattish catamaran boat that floats on cylindrical tubes called “pontoons.” Pontoons are good RC boats for lakes and are mostly used for fishing because they can run longer on less battery.

This classical pontoon boat works well as a tool for bait fishing. It has about 20 hours of battery life according to the manufacturer, and though you can’t always trust those claims, we can tell you from experience that this RC pontoon boat lasts about as long as you could possibly want it to. It also moves at a steady 1.5 miles per hour, which is typical of this kind of vehicle.

It also has a solid motor, two large bait containers, a quiet operation, and good durability, all for less than 150 dollars. This is one of the most consistently well-reviewed radio controlled pontoon boats for sale, and we think you’ll love it too.

Flytec 3 Fishing Bait RC Boat Specifications

  • • 1.5 MPH top speed
  • • Takes a 3.7V 5200mAh Lipo battery (1 included)
  • • 2-20 hour continuous navigation time
  • • 2 super capacity bait tanks
  • • Can move in four directions
  • • Battery charger included

#13. HuntGold Electric Bait Fishing Ship

Read reviews and shop for the HuntGold Electric Bait Fishing Ship Here

This is definitely not what you think of when you think of a typical RC pontoon boat, because it only has a single large buoyancy pontoon instead of two smaller ones. However, the HuntGold Electric Bait Fishing Ship is one of the very best RC boats for lakes in its class.

It lasts for 8 hours of continuous usage (according to the manufacturer, at least – we’ve never had cause to use it for quite that long) and the large pontoon helps keep it stable in the water and gives it better wind resistance than some of its competitors. Plus, it can be used at night thanks to LED lights, and it’s nearly silent, which is ideal for when you’re chumming the water with bait.

This RC boat may not be the most exciting looking, but it’s a great choice for serious fishing enthusiasts.

HuntGold Electric Bait Fishing Ship Specifications

  • • 2.5 MPH top speed
  • • Takes a 4.8V DC battery (1 included)
  • • 8 hour continuous navigation time
  • • Can move in four directions
  • • Battery charger included

RC swamp boats are becoming more popular, as they’re more equipped to traverse stagnant waters and more rough natural areas. Most RC swamp boats are also RC airboats – some consider the terms interchangeable.

This popular remote control swamp boat emphasizes safety and stabilitly over everything else, which is often what you want from a swamp boat. It has a very impressive 500 foot range, a sailing time of up to 14 minutes, and a decent speed. It’s modeled after real-life swamp boats, only scaled down, giving it a unique look that fans of aesthetics are sure to appreciate.

All in all there’s not much to say – this is just an incredibly solid, consistently well-reviewed RC swamp boat and easily one of the best for sale.

Aqucraft Mini Alligator Tours RC Swamp Boat Specifications

  • • 10 MPH top speed
  • • 18.25 inch hull length

This boat is something truly special. The first thing you’ll notice is the unique four-propeller design and the amphibious undercarriage that allows this swamp boat to travel on land or water. The second thing you’ll notice is how small it is – only 8 inches in length!

But one of the best things about the Mirarobot GV160 Amphibious Whoover is that it’s the only rc boat with a camera on this entire list. That’s right – there’s a 600TVL camera built right into the boat itself, allowing you to stream FPV video to the controller or even record it to share later. If you’re an amateur photographer who’s also interested in RC swamp boats, this isn’t just your best choice – it’s basically your ONLY choice.

All that, plus good specs, for less than $70. A clear winner in its category.

Best RC Boats Under 100

Back to Top

RC boats costing less than $100 are great budget-friendly options that can be enjoyed by people of all skill levels. Since these are cheap RC boats, you may be missing out on some features that you’d find in more expensive RC boats, but don’t let that turn you away. These affordable RC toys under $100 still give you a great boating experience and may just be exactly what you’re looking for.

Some features to look for when shopping for RC boats less than $100 are speed, range, size, and battery life. An affordable boat will probably travel at speeds around 10-15 mph. While this isn’t as fast as some more professional-grade RC boats, these speeds are great for kids and beginners who are just starting the RC hobby. Similarly, the RC boat may not have the farthest range but this is okay because it will help drivers stay in control without their boat getting out too far in the water.

An RC water toy at this price may also be quite a bit smaller than other boats costing more than $100. Again, a smaller size will be beginner and kid-friendly and help them get started learning how to drive RC toys. The battery life in your RC boat may only be about 10-15 minutes as well. However, one good thing about RC boats less than $100 is that some manufacturers will include an extra battery giving users double the driving time.

Best RC Boats for Lakes

Back to Top

One of the best places to drive an RC boat is at the lake. Some RC boats are better for driving in lakes than others for a number of reasons. Since lakes are often large bodies of water it’s important that you will be able to see your boat at all times and stay in control of it.

Some features to look for when buying an RC toy for lakes are it’s size, speed, range, and battery life. Plus, it also helps if your boat is a bright color like red or yellow so you can always spot it on the water. You will also want a boat that is big enough as well for these reasons. A smaller sized boat may be harder to spot if it’s far away from you.

One great thing about driving RC boats on lakes is that you can reach some serious speeds without interfering with other people that may be on the water. Boats that go about 20-30 mph would be great for racing across the lake. You can also find an RC boat that has a bit farther of a range to allow to drive across the lake. However, you don’t want to drive too far and lose your boat. Because of this, you should find a boat with an out-of-range alarm so you will be able to know when it’s time to reel in your boat a little bit.

Also look for RC boats that have a low-battery alarm as well. While driving a boat on a lake will allow you find a boat that has a longer battery life, you won’t want the battery to run out while it’s far away from you. These features help you keep control of RC lake boat so you can have an enjoyable driving experience.

Fastest RC Boats

Back to Top

Some RC boat drivers may have a need for speed. If this is you and you’re looking for an RC speed boat, there are certain things to look for.

The fastest RC boats will have brushless motors. A brushless RC boat will have more power as opposed to a brushed model, which means it can go faster and reach some serious speeds on the water.

Because you’ll be going faster in the water, it may be more difficult to stay in control of the boat. Because of this, an anti-capsize hull system will help you tremendously. If your boat gets flipped over in the water, its hull system will help you get it back upright and racing again.

Since fast RC boats can be more advanced, kids should be careful if they are driving them. Always be sure an adult is present when a child is driving an RC boat or wait until they are older before they start driving one. Similarly, beginners may struggle at first. RC speed boats are best for experienced RC hobbyists.

Safety is a huge thing to consider when looking at fast RC boats. That’s why we recommend that only older or experienced drivers use them. Other things to look for to help anyone driving stay safe are low-battery and out-of-range alarms to help you know when it’s time to bring the boat in. Another good tip is to always keep your RC speed boat in site to minimize your chances of losing control of it.

The fastest speed you’ll find on an RC speed boat is around 35-50 mph. These are impressive speeds to reach on the water and are great for racing. Be sure to put your fast RC boat to the test by racing up against other hobbyists and show off those driving skills.

Now, let’s be honest here, most of us are not going to have $400+ floating around out there for a new RC Boat no matter how fast it goes. And even if we did, who are we going to end up racing with?

No, for most of us, we want speed and we want it to be affordable! Enter, the AA Aqua. This boat from Altair is sharp looking, but it can really move on the water too reaching speeds up to 20 mph at a fraction of the cost (around $80).

The Aqua also comes with two batteries that are good for around 10 minutes each, so you can really have a good time out on the water. I loved getting this thing out on the lake by my parents house. No matter how choppy the water got, I was still able to plow through.

Types of RC Boats

There are many types of RC boats available and all come with different features and specs depending on what you’re looking for. Whether you’re searching for an RC boat for you, your outdoorsy brother or your young child, there is definitely a boat out there that’s perfect.

RC boats with Camera

One type of RC boat are those that come with built in or attachable cameras. These boats are great for anyone who wants to capture some great first-person view action shots with their boat while racing across the water.

Remote Control Pontoon Boats

If you’re looking for a toy to take along with you on relaxing days at the lake, an RC pontoon boat might be great for you. These slower moving boats are a ton fun

Saltwater RC boats

Not all boats can be driven in saltwater, but if you’re hoping to take an RC boat with you to the beach you can luckily find some great and exciting ones to take along. When searching just make sure the package is safe for saltwater so you can assure no damage will be done as you’re busy racing through the waves.

Miniature RC Boat

Miniature RC boats are smaller than your standard boat and are great for kids. Since they aren’t too big, kids can easily control them on pools, ponds, and lakes and have a blast while driving them. Plus, they are great for traveling because they don’t take up nearly as much space and are a great toy to have on weekend getaways and vacations.

Radio Controlled Boat FAQs

What’s the best RC boat to buy?

We consider the Traxxas Spartan the best remote control boat of 2019. However, there’s really no objective answer to this question. While the Spartan is the most powerful boat and easily one of the fastest, it’s also very expensive and may not have as much appeal to beginners, who may want a boat with self-righting capsize recovery technology.

That’s why we have broken this list of best electric RC boats into several categories – it lets you, the reader, find the boat that works best for you specifically.

How do RC boats work?

The transmitter or mobile device being used to control the boat sends a radio signal to a receiver on the boat itself. The receiver then interprets the signal and uses the boat’s motor to go forward, turn, or reverse. RC boats have been around for several years now and are a very popular. There are even a selection of RC boats for kids that make a great gift

Can RC boats go in saltwater?

Most remote control boats should not be used in saltwater. Unlike freshwater, saltwater can cause rust and other forms of damage to the delicate electronic parts inside your vehicle. However, RC boats that are designed to be used in saltwater do exist – so as long as you make sure to buy something that says it’s “saltwater safe”, you should be able to use it anywhere.

What’s the fastest RC boat?

The fastest RC boat ever recorded is the Munich SAW, which was recorded at speeds of over 300 kilometers per hour (a little under 200 mph.) However, this world record setter was a custom build and is not available for commercial sale.

The fastest RC boat that you can buy is probably the Traxxas DCB M41 Catamaran. It regularly moves at speeds of 50-60 miles per hour, and with the right battery it can even go much faster than that.

What is the best RC boat for rough water?

The Force1 Velocity, UDIRC Venom, and anything made by Traxxas are great RC boats for rough water.

Where to buy RC boats?

RC boats can sometimes be found in a store, but are most commonly purchased from Amazon or directly from a manufacturer’s website in the modern age. We’ve included Amazon links to every product on this list to make finding the perfect RC boat more convenient for our readers.

Finding the Best RC Boat for You

RC racing is one way to get some great enjoyment out of your day off, time spent with kids, and learning the ropes of a new hobby. These days it’s exciting that there are submarines popping up on the market, as many will love to explore under the surface instead of racing on top of it.

The best RC boats are only going to become more exciting and more technologically advanced as we head into 2019 and beyond. We hope this article has helped you find something that’s perfect for you. And if you’ve got a great RC boat we missed, be sure to let us (and our readers) know all about it in the comments below!

Force1 Gravity Defying Rechargeable RC Car

Force1 is an excellent manufacturer of beginner RC vehicles, and their Gravity Defying Rechargeable RC Car is, in our opinion, the best micro RC car for sale. The name refers to the fact that it can drive on the walls or ceiling, which is a neat gimmick, but what really pushes this car across the finish line is its great performance, which includes multiple controller channels and good speed. It has a few issues with durability, like all micro RC cars, but even in this area it’s a lot sturdier than most of the other products out there.

Haomsj Mini Coke Can Micro Racing Car

No, that isn’t a typo – the company that makes these micro cars really is called “hoamsj”, with no capitalization. These popular cars have a great and stylish design, as do the cans they come in (which aren’t actually Coke cans, despite the name.) They have decent power, charge quickly, and come with a few toy traffic cones, but mainly what you’re paying for here is the colorful aesthetic.

Small Radio Controlled Cars FAQ

What’s the difference between a mini RC car and micro RC car?

A mini RC car is a small remote control vehicle that can be driven indoors – usually around 1:32 scale at most. A micro RC car is the tiniest possible remote control vehicle – they can get as small as 1:72 scale.

In other words, these are nearly identical classes of remote control vehicle, but “micro” is smaller than “mini.”

What is the smallest remote control car?

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the smallest remote control car ever made is a 25 millimeter model of a Mercedes Benz. That’s 1/90th the size of the original car.

What does RC scale mean?

Many small radio controlled cars are modeled after full-size vehicles. The “scale” is the size comparison between the remote control version of the vehicle and the original car. For example, a 1:10 scale RC car (one of the most common scales) is 1/10th the size of the original car it’s modeled after.

Micro radio controlled cars and mini radio controlled cars usually start at around a 1:32 scale.

Can you buy small remote control cars with camera?

There are a few small remote control cars with camera, but they’re not common, and the cameras aren’t very good. If you’re looking with an RC vehicle with a camera, you’re better off with a drone.

What is the average price of small remote control cars?

Small remote control cars usually cost 50 to 100 dollars.

Where to buy mini RC cars?

Mini and micro RC cars can be purchased in a brick-and-mortar shop if you happen to live in a big city with niche hobby stores, but they’re usually purchased from an online storefront like Amazon. We’ve provided Amazon affiliate links to every product listed in our reviews above.

7 Long Range Drones – [Updated 2020] Best Long Distance Quadcopters

best long range drones dronethusiast

Updated: March 13, 2020

One of the most important features to look at when you’re buying a new drone is its controllable range – that is, how far apart the transmitter and the receiver can be without the connection breaking up. Most commercial drones can only manage a remote distance of 30 meters or so, but what about longer-range drones? After all, one of the biggest benefits of commercial quadcopters is that they’ve given even amateur photographers and videographers the chance to take some amazing aerial shots, and you can’t do that with a paltry 30 meters.

Here’s a short list of some of the best long-range drones on the market today. Let us know in the comments if we’ve missed a personal favorite!

#2. Altair Aerial Outlaw SE

Back To Top

If you’re a first-time flier who’s interested in buying a long-range drone, the Outlaw SE is without a doubt the best choice around. For less than $300, you get a drone with prosumer-grade GPS features that let it automatically return to where it took off from and keep itself stable in the air without any additional input. Plus, it comes with the Altair reputation for durability and quality. The only downside here is the short battery life, but with a drone this cheap, why not buy some extras?

Altair also put together a nice set of how-to videos for the Outlaw SE (click here). If you run into any problems check these out or I’ve found that they are very responsive at help@altairaerial.com.

Listed below are the specs:

  • – MT1806 1800KV brushless motors
  • – 1080p camera with 500+ meter FPV range
  • – A 2.4 gHz two-way transmitter with 600-meter range
  • – Total flight time of approximately 18 minutes

#3. The Blackhawk

The Blackhawk is a more advanced level quad with 15-17 Minutes of Flight time and 300-500 Meter Range!

The Altair Aerial Blackhawk is easily the best long-range drone for the money. Sure, it may not boast the impressive numbers of some of the other entries, but with 200-500 meters of range and racing drone speed, this drone won’t leave many pilots unsatisfied. And how many drones can boast a range that’s 60 times that of the average for a super low price! Now that’s a bargain.

Listed below are the specs:

  • – Brushless motors for a perfect balance of power and quiet operation
  • – A 2.4 gHz two-way transmitter with 200-500 meter range
  • – Total flight time of approximately 15 minutes
  • – 6-axis gyro
  • – Action camera slot that fits the GoPro 3 and 4 camera and other action cameras

#4. DJI Mavic Pro

Read Reviews About DJI Mavic Pro

Back To Top

The DJI Mavic Pro is, as the name implies, a professional-grade drone with a $935 price tag that’s gonna be a major problem for most recreational copter fans.

#5. DJI Phantom 4

Back To Top

Someday we’ll be able to go a whole list without mentioning the DJI Phantom 4. Today is not that day. It’s our most expensive option so far and has a “mere” 5000 meter range, so if all you want is to go as far as possible you’re better off sticking with the Mavic Pro. But with its legendary host of impressive features, it’s not hard to see why the Phantom 4 is still a Dronethusiast favorite.

Listed below are the specs:

  • -Has a camera with 4K HD videos at 30 FPS and slow motion at 1080p for 120 FPS that supports 12 MP stills at 4000 x 3000 with a f/2.8 lens

#6. Yuneec Typhoon H Pro

Read Reviews About Yuneec Typhoon H
Back To Top

At $1,500, the Yuneec Typhoon H Pro with RealSense is nothing to sneeze at. It’s also a fairly delicate instrument and absolutely not a vehicle for beginners. But not only does it come equipped with an impressive 1800 meter range (a full mile, if you can believe it) – it also takes videos and images in gorgeous 4K quality, making this a must-have for serious aerial photographers.

Listed below are the specs:

  • -Comes with the ST16 all-in-one controller that eliminates any need to use a tablet or a smartphone with an integrated 7” Android touchscreen that allows for 720p HD video downlinks in real time
  • -Uses ultrasonic collision prevention, 6 rotor safety, and 5 rotor fail-safe
  • -Features Orbit Me, Point of Interest, Journey Mode, Curve Cable Cam, Auto Takeoff, Auto Land, Auto Return to Home, and more

Back To Top

And at the complete opposite end of the spectrum, we have the H501S X4 by Hubsan. For $250 you get only 300 meters of range (less than either of the bugs), but the X4 still deserves a place on this list for the incredible amount of GPS capabilities and functions it offers for the price. Sure, it’s at the low end of long-distance quadcopters, but if you’re looking for a solid camera and a near-professional range of features at an amateur price range, you could do a lot worse.

Listed below are the specs:

  • -Has a 1080p HD camera
  • -Features Follow Me, Altitude Hold, Automatic Return to Home, Headless Mode, Low Power Protection, Expert Mode and more
  • -Uses the latest 6-axis gyro flight stabilizing system
  • -Has a 4.3” LCD screen on the controller with a resolution of 480 x 272 that is capable of real time transmission in FPV with a range of up to 300 meters
  • -Takes a 2700mAh LiPo battery
  • -Total flight time of up to 20 minutes
  • -Weighs 4 pounds with a total size of 8.7”x8.7”x2.8”

Long-Range Drone FAQ

Back To Top

If you don’t see your question listed below in our FAQ section, get in touch with us and we’ll help you out.

What are the advantages of long-range drones?

There are many advantages to drones with longer-than-usual ranges. The most obvious of these is safety – the longer the range of your drone, the less likely you are to lose control of the aircraft, even if it’s very fast. For this reason, beginner fliers are especially in need of a very good range.

But where long-range drones like the ones on this list really shine is in the field of aerial photography. They make it possible to get incredible shots from incredibly high up, or to get wide-angle views when the photographer’s far out of sight. It’s also much safer to use a drone to take photos while you’re standing on the ground than traditional aerial photography, which was either accomplished with a prohibitively-expensive helicopter or by taking dangerous positions on tall buildings.

In fact, long-range drones have even been used to capture footage for major feature films, including Captain America: Civil War and Man of Steel

What determines the range of a drone?

The range of a drone is mostly determined by the quality of its radio link – the invisible connection between the transmitter and the aircraft that works the same as a radio or any other RC vehicle. Most drones use a 2.4 gHz radio frequency, which can give you up to 1500 meters in the best possible conditions. Lower frequencies, like 1.2 gHz, give you better range, but are illegal in many states because those are the same frequencies used by commercial aircraft.

However, most drones do not provide those best possible conditions. There’s a few good reasons for this. Firstly, the technology in the highest-quality radio/receivers – like FrSky – is often bulky and can make it hard to easily transport your drone (not to mention the increased power needed to get it airborne.) And secondly – in part because of the bulkier parts – this technology is a lot more expensive.

Can other factors affect a drone’s effective range?

Absolutely! Most notably: putting an obstacle (like a tree or a building) between the transmitter and the drone interferes with the signal and gives you a much lower range than what it says on the box. If you are unable to fly in an open area like a field or a park, you’re going to want to stay well below the maximum range to make sure your aircraft doesn’t fly out of your control.

And for drones that fly in first-person view, cameras have an even less effective range because most 5.8 gHz FPV systems start losing picture after 500 meters. This should make sense even to our less-technically-minded readers: it’s a lot harder to stream video than it is to just transmit simple commands.

    Hi,

    Enjoyable reading . It’s amazing what one can learn from your reviews on all these Drones, thank you very much for your input !

    I’d like your advise on which drone to invest in for wildlife survilence purposes . My main issues that I’m currently confused on are night time camera capabilities, longest possible battery range and lift distance.

    Thank you for your time .

  • boBDecember 10, 2018 at 10:31 pm

    Any comment on how hard each of these is to calibrate? I find some drones with the turn over, twisting, etc to be a real headache and sometimes won’t work well. THanx!

  • Rodolfo KeyJanuary 20, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    Hi, thank you for the article. Is it possible to have a range of hundreds of kms (400 km or more) with low radio frequency, assuming that the best possible conditions and that radio frequency is not illegal. For example a drone flying over a large rain forest or bush land. Assuming the signal is transmitted from a tower taller than the trees. Thank you
