Bumper Boat
« on: July 02, 2017, 05:00:50 PM »

Just got my Bumper Boat kit home from Modelboatbits.com, please note that if you order it from https://www.lowemodels.co.uk/bumper-boats
you will get the chance to choose between 4 colour options.

I bought the kit + motor pack. So just have to add a battery (2S 2200mA LiPo) and a receiver.

It is a simple job to assemble it, my only modification is that I gave the motor a couple drops of silicon just to fix it a bit better.
I added a 5mm red flashing LED and I'll add some more LED's in different colours when I get the time to do it.

Great boat for the kids as the bumper will most likely save the day.

They seem quite expensive to me for what is a very basic hull and a pond noodle.


If Martin will excuse me have you seen this

It's my age!


Barbie & Ken are just far too wholesome & Action Man just looks wrong unless you can get a camouflage noodle.


The RCGroups link I gave doesn't work. Try this

I bought it for my nephew, so he has something he can bash around with without breaking it.

Is that the best excuse you can think of?    {-)   {-)   {-) 


Will you add a length dimension please - either hull only or including noodle as long as you state which it is. It looks fairly large against the electronic bits.


What size motor do they include?
