Remotely Drop Off Your Bait

If you are looking to add a little RC to your fishing trips, then this radio controlled bait boat should do the trick. It's a rather large V Hull boat that has a carry handle on top for easy transport to the waters edge and two hoppers you can fill with bait. Drive the boat out to your desired location and use the radio controls to drop the bait off in the water.

The boat itself is made from ABS plastic and it has two brushed motors for propulsion and steering. There's an external antenna on the boat that helps to provide up to 500M range. There's a light up front for night time use and they include a 5200mAh lipo battery for long run times.

Specifications:

  • Transmitter Frequency: 2.4Ghz
  • Channels: 4CH
  • Transmitter Battery: 4 AA's (not included)
  • Control distance: 400-500M
  • Battery: 7.4V 5200mAh Lipo (included)
  • Charging Time: About 10-12 hours
  • Run Time: 2-24hours
  • Material: ABS plastic
  • Load Capacity: 1.5kg
  • Dimensions: 50*27*20cm(L*W*H)

Cool concept, but looks more toy grade than hobby grade to me.

Is the little blue battery in the front of the boat the main battery? I don't see how that is possibly a 5200mah 2s if so!

Looks like a typical 1500 mAh Li-Ion pack. Could be larger.

Can't tell everything from looks, but I am wary here. The photo of someone holding the boat makes it look quite large, but specs say the hull is only 20" long. Did they get a midget to pose with it?

So I am confused here. Photos show a large boat and specs claim a large battery, yet the price and given dimensions says small everything. Good ol' Bang Good.

They just have your average chinaman holding it.

Man? Look closer....maybe not.



I AM seeing some visual artifacts that could be clues of using photoshop to make the boat appears slightly larger in the photo where it is being held. There's a lot of that going on today.

A bait boat can also deliver your hook or lure farther than you can cast and drop it right where you want it. Sort of a cheat actually

Not really a cheat if your toy scares off all the fishes before launching the bait...

Bait boats have become quite popular, so I believe we can assume that has not proven to be problem.

I and my friends have trolled using the outboard motor sometimes when we didn't have a dedicated electric trolling motor, and did just fine. Those little brushed motors at moderate RPMS will be quiet enough.

I do not see any steering means so it will be skid/tank steering. That is a big nono(as in toy grade) in my opinion.

(Think about tank steering your bait to the desired dropping place if it is a bit breezy, good luck.)

Most bait boats (if not all) use differential steering with no issue, including the expensive high-end ones: https://www.mivardi.com/products/new...s-fish-finder/


Like an aircraft, you just "crab" into the wind to maintain your course. No biggie.

There was a local fellow that had two, both catamaran style with a center feed drop. Both hulls were well made and used off shelf china electronics. Both differential steered (dual drivelines. The larger one had a really well made fiberglass hull with LEDs The only issue for him was speed, the lakes he fishes in are quite large (Texas/ Lake Ray Hubbard). The larger one looked to use dual electric wheelchair motors. It seemed to handle chop quite well being a wide cat type hull.
