Rip Up the Water with the Pro Boat UL-19 Brushless Hydroplane

When your summer plans involve wet “terrain”, don’t fear that your passion for the hobby will need to be put on hold. There are an array of amazing radio-controlled watercraft for all levels of experience, just ready to hit the water. One of the latest ready-to-run (RTR) options carries a lean and mean look, along with impressive speed.

The Pro Boat UL-19 Brushless Hydroplane is, as its name implies, a brushless-powered watercraft that is capable of attaining speeds close to 50mph. Lightweight construction and a sleek, 30-inch long fiberglass hull assist it in cutting through water and waterproof electronics help to ensure your fun doesn’t stop should the boat become a submarine.

The propultion system of the UL-19 feature a mix of aluminum and stainless steel components, including a two-blade prop, aluminum rudder, and turning fin. The drive system utilizes a flex shaft design to channel the power from the 6-pole brushless (2000kv) motor to the propellers.

On the electronics side, this boat includes a Spektrum DX2E radio and the aformentioned waterproof receiver and electronic speed control (ESC). Capping this craft off is an eye-catching blue and yellow paint scheme.
