Horizon Hobby and ProBoat hit the nail on the head with this 48-inch monster of a fast-electric catamaran, capable of 55mph speeds on 8s LiPo.

A Race-Capable FE Cat? We Think So!

Pro Boat has just announced a monster catamaran that's more akin to the big gas-powered heat racing cats that dominate the IMPBA and NAMBA classes, but this one's all electric! The Zelos is a 48-inch single-motor electric catamaran that's capable of 55 mph straight speeds on 8s (a pair of 4s LiPos), and that's the perfect speed for heat racing in an open offshore or open cat class. But whether you're into racing or just making hot passes at the local pond for fun, the Zelos should deliver excitement nicely, courtesy of a massive 56mm 87mm 1000Kv, 6-pole water-cooled high-torque motor and a 160 amp esc.

The Zelos features a tall draft hull that should excel in choppier waters and race water, reducing blow overs and crash outs. It comes with a 1.41.90 prop, with a 1.42.0 available for additional performance. Pricing for the Pro Boat Zelos looks to be just under $1000. No current release date is specified, but pre-order is available.

Ready to Run

The Zelos comes with a Spektrum DX2E transmitter and S904 1/6 scale waterproof digital servo, meaning you'll only need to supply a pair of 11.1V (3S) or 14.8V (4S) 5000mAh 50C LiPos to get her in the water and cutting laps.
