** Then it does not qualify as a "boat" under any rules anywhere.
Plus Yankee hobby mags print a packs of absolute lies when any "mph"
figures are concerned.

You said "go by incredibly fast" - did you not mean speed past the
operator at 150 feet range ?
If you f.....g bothered to read all my posts in this thread you will
see I gave 150 feet at the distance of good visual control for a model car.
That is all, not a boat, plane or anything else.
On a model car track the only "straight" is always directly in front of
the driver's stand - top speed is held for about three seconds only and
the drivers have no problem. The rest of the track is winding and that keeps
speeds well down. Laps take 20 seconds or more.
And yes, there are places you can safely hold R/C cars and boats wide open
** So f....g what dickhead. There are places you can safely fire a 150
mm cannon - but not the public street, parks or car parks - OK ????
** I raced model boats as well as electric cars for several years - the
fastest boats went 80 mph on a 300 metre oval circuit - they were the 15cc
class or twin 15 cc outrigger hydros. Each lap took 10 to 12 seconds. The
max distance from boat to driver was about 300 feet - but that is a *boat*
in water - great precision in driving is not required since there is no
marked track and lots of clear water to head off into if need be.
The fact is that such boats are EXTREMELY dangerours and the Public
Liability issues VERY serious in realation to spectators who have no inkling
of the danger they are in anywhere near the area of such a missile.
A flat battery or few drops of water in the Rx send these beasts out
of control - usually at full throttle and straight up the bank and
cartwheeling for a hundred yards at 80 mph.
> Now since some of these cars and boats are 1/8 or even 1/4 scale, I'm
> damn sure you can clearly see them at distances greater then a few hundred
** 1/8 scale race boats are not very big - less than a metre long. They
are hard to control and good vision is essential. 1/8 scale race cars are
only 0.5 metres long and need *precise* control on a **marked out race
track** like the several I used.
A good model car race track never has more than 150 feet between the
cars and the driver. More than that causes masses of pile ups.
I asked the OP what he wanted the 1000 ft range for - is that not
good enough for you Mr Dickhead??
