Pro Boat Releases a Gas Powered Zelos 48

Pro Boat is killing it this season with many awesome new boats hitting the market and that continues with the release of the Zelos 48 G, a gas powered variant on the popular catamaran design. It's a RTR (Ready to Run) model that comes with a Spektrum DX2E transmitter, Spektrum MR4000 4-channel marine receiver, a Dynamite 3200mAH receiver battery, a Dynamite Zenoah 30cc gas engine, a Spektrum rudder steering servo and a boat stand.

This thing is ready to rock and that color scheme really pops. With the Zenoah gas engine you'll be hitting speeds over 50MPH on the water. This engine has an EZ Start system making it easier to get up and running so you can play instead of pulling on the start cord all day. The Cat style hull is wide for stability and features a triple layer of fiberglass and finished off with shiny gel coat. The fiberglass canopy has easy on/off thumb screw fasteners to make life easy.

The Zelos G comes with an adjustable alloy anodized propeller strut so you can run it in salt water and tune it to the conditions of the day. The rudder is also anodized aluminum and features a breakaway design that protects the rudder should you drive over any hard objects in the water. The rudder is connected to a large 1/6th scale S904HV Spektrum servo for precise solid control authority. Naturally the engine needs some cooling so there is a water pickup on the bottom of the hull and rudder to flow fresh water through the system and help to keep the engine within normal operating temps. There's just so many things to like about this boat.

Beautiful boat.

Interesting it's the same price as the Rockstar was when it came out. Or was it $1399? Can't remember.

Either way this boat looks like a beast. Can't wait to see some user reviews and drives!!

If you had a servo controlled elevator up front on a gyro when driving into the wind
for sure keep them on pace. I had one back in the day and blow overs was a pain.
