The 15 Best Remote Control Boats For Kids – Guidebook

Remote-controlled boats are a great way to teach your child a lot of fun and a lot of movement, sensitivity and dexterity. Also, your child learns to plan ahead, because compared to remote control vehicles that move on solid ground, the remote control boat runs through the water slightly delayed. So your child must always think one step ahead. When choosing your boat, it is important that you take into account the age of your child and get an overview of the safe condition of the remote control boat.

In our checklist we have compiled everything on the subject of remote control boats for you. In addition, you will find a list of the best remote control boats for children in our product recommendation.

Checklist For Remote Control Boats

What Are The Age Groups For Remote Control Boats?
  • Children of almost any age can enjoy the symbolic appeal of ships and boats. It is recommended to allow them only an observer role until about 4 years old, from then on they are allowed to take the controls themselves. For toddlers, RC boats with the appropriate age recommendation are meant to be launched in the bathtub at home or in the backyard pool.
  • From about 10 years, RC circles venture out into the open. At smaller ponds and lakes, depending on the model, up to 20 “km/h over land” can be achieved. Of course, the RC boat should be adapted to the development stage of juniors, as a rule of thumb: child age times 2 = maximum speed.
A Look In Under The Planks …
  • The risk of injuring someone with RC boats running in the water is noticeably low, so there are hardly any safety restrictions. Fishing lakes are located on private property and even some public lakes have a strict ban on gasoline engines by the municipality. In contrast to the e-boats, they score with higher performance and save you a recharging time of up to 4 hours.
  • Depending on the power, smaller electric motors can be up and running in as little as 10 minutes. They are more environmentally friendly, much quieter, and cheaper, so just suitable for maritime RC beginners. A few spare batteries in the bag have never hurt anyone. RC models are, of course, modeled as closely as possible on the original. In this respect, the question of whether turbine, screw, twin screw with Z-, V- or rigid drive hardly arises.
Little Extras For The Happy Captain
  • Much more interesting are additional functions such as an operable fire extinguishing gun, integrated lighting, swiveling searchlights or signal horns. A safety-relevant aspect for high-quality models is the automatic shutdown, which interrupts the screw drive as soon as the boat is out of the water. A charge level indicator and range alarm on better remote controls (transmitters) also prevent involuntary swims if your boat should escape you.
