One area of the hobby that I have yet to explore is the world of radio-controlled boats, however, this new model from Pro Boat might be the entry point that I’ve been waiting for. The new Jet Jam is a 12″ long, ready-to-run (RTR) watercraft with a sleek design and a nice usability feature. It’s self-righting.
One of the biggest obstacles between myself and the open water has been the fear of capsizing and losing an R/C boat. Thankfully, this model alleviates that fear, and it does it with style.
The hull design of the Pro Boat Jet Racer is both sleek and stylish. Available in two colors (orange and white), it should be easy to spot in a lake, pool, or another body of water, so long as it’s 3″ deep.
Another unique aspect is the jet pump propulsion system that it uses. There’s no need to worry about getting cut by a propeller or replacing props after they come in contact with rocks or other debris.
