ProBoat Veles 29 Brushless Catamaran Boat with 2.4GHz Radio System - PRB08029
ProBoat Veles 29 Brushless Catamaran Boat with 2.4GHz Radio System
The Veles 29-inch Catamaran looks as good as it performs. It has much in common with the Blackjack 29, but has some new tricks up its sleeve-including an updated hull and a 6-pole 2000Kv motor that is more efficient and powerful. On 4S LiPo, the motor can propel the boat to 45+ miles per hour. With 6S power, this boat can hit speeds of 50+ miles per hour. The Veles 29 has an anodised, inline, adjustable propeller strut, offset rudder with water pick up, and stainless steel propeller. This boat is responsive and predictable, making it easy to drive. Whether this is your first RC watercraft or you've been driving boats for years, you'll love the speed, power and handling of this slick catamaran.
Hand-laid Fiberglass Composite Hull and Canopy: Laid in three layers of fiberglass and hardened with high-strength resin, the hull and canopy are built to last! The hull's stiffness allows it to be more predictable-it deforms far less than heat-moulded hulls and can withstand speeds in which most heat-moulded hulls would fold. Fiberglass constructed hulls are built for performance just like the real boats you see racing offshore.
Optimised Hull Design: The hull design features redesigned, stepped ride pads like real 1:1 catamarans. These steps give the boat a smoother ride along the water and ultimately provide more precise steering responses. The hull's design merges the best features of Pro Boat models such as the Miss Geico and Blackjack 29. The canopy has four thumbscrews that secure the hatch in case of crashes.
Removable Injection-Moulded Interior: Thanks to the interior's composite material, there's no need for an inner wood structure. To remove the interior, simply unbolt it for servicing.
Powerful 2000Kv 6-Pole Marine Motor: This powerful 36x56 mm motor features the same Kv as the motors of our other 29-inch boats, but offers more speed on less voltage when paired with the stainless steel propeller included with the boat. You no longer need to run 6S power to get 6S speeds.
Adjustable Aluminium Propeller Strut: The adjustable aluminium propeller strut lets you completely tune your boat for optimal performance in changing water and wind conditions. The flat bottom on the propeller strut acts like a trim tab and makes adjustments much more precise. With the propeller strut, even small adjustments go a long way.
Break-Away Rudder with Water Inlet: The Veles uses a break-away rudder to safeguard the rudder and transom from floating objects or in the event the boat runs on shore. The water inlet helps cool the electronics even at low speeds and increases flow with forward momentum.
Spektrum™ DX2E 2.4GHz Transmitter and Receiver: The Spektrum DX2E 2.4 radio system and receiver with DSMR protocol provides precision and total control. The DX2E allows you to properly adjust your rudder travel. Other features include low-battery detection and failsafe.
High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo: The high-torque steering servo offers peace of mind because the boat will stay in the direction you point it despite tricky water conditions.

Required to Complete
2 x 2S or 3S 50C LiPo Batteries with EC5 Connectors
Compatible LiPo Battery Charger
4AA Batteries for Transmitter
Note: The included propeller provides the best performance between 4S (14.8V) and 5S LiPo (18.5V). 5S configuration can be achieved by mounting a 3S LiPo (DYNB3811EC) on the left side of the boat and a 2S, LiPo (DYNB3810EC) on the right side of the boat. The added weight of the 3S battery on the left side will counteract torque twist caused by the propeller spinning at high RPM. To use 6S power, you must change the propeller. Full details are given in the manual.
