Whether you crave action or relaxation, you'll enjoy radio-controlled boating. There's nothing quite as soothing as gliding your scale R/C sailboat across a pond, or for full-throttle excitement, you can race a nitro- or electric-powered deep vee or hydro! Many of Tower Hobbies' most popular model boats already come pre-built. To start making waves, just add water!
