The Veles 29-inch Catamaran looks as good as it performs. It has much in common with the Blackjack 29, but has some new tricks up its sleeve-including an all-new hull and a 6-pole 2000Kv motor that is more efficient and powerful. On 4S Li-Po, the motor can propel the boat to 45+ mph (70+ km/h). With 6S power, this boat can hit speeds of 50+ mph (80+ km/h). The Veles 29 has an anodized, inline, adjustable propeller strut, offset rudder with water pick up, and stainless steel propeller. This boat is responsive and predictable, making it easy to drive. Whether this is your first RC watercraft or you've been driving boats for years, you'll love the speed, power and handling of this slick catamaran.
Hand-laid Fiberglass Composite Hull and Canopy
Laid in three layers of fiberglass and hardened with high-strength resin, the hull and canopy are built to last! The hull's stiffness allows it to be more predictable-it deforms far less than heat-molded hulls and can withstand speeds in which most heat-molded hulls would fold. Fiberglass constructed hulls are built for performance just like the real boats you see racing offshore.
Optimized Hull Design
The new hull design features redesigned, stepped ride pads like real 1:1 catamarans. These steps give the boat a smoother ride along the water and ultimately provide more precise steering responses. The hull's design merges the best features of Pro Boat models such as the Miss Geico and Blackjack 29. The canopy has four thumbscrews that secure the hatch in case of crashes.
Removable Injection-Molded Interior
Thanks to the interior's composite material, there's no need for an inner wood structure. To remove the interior, simply unbolt it for servicing.
Powerful 2000Kv 6-Pole Marine Motor
This powerful 36x56 mm motor features the same Kv as the motors of our other 29-inch boats, but offers more speed on less voltage when paired with the new stainless steel propeller included with the boat. You no longer need to run 6S power to get 6S speeds.
Adjustable Aluminum Propeller Strut
The adjustable aluminum propeller strut lets you completely tune your boat for optimal performance in changing water and wind conditions. The flat bottom on the propeller strut acts like a trim tab and makes adjustments much more precise. With the new propeller strut, even small adjustments go a long way.
Break-Away Rudder with Water Inlet
The Veles uses a break-away rudder to safeguard the rudder and transom from floating objects or in the event the boat runs on shore. The water inlet helps cool the electronics even at low speeds and increases flow with forward momentum.
Spektrum™ DX2E 2.4GHz Transmitter and Receiver
The Spektrum DX2E 2.4 radio system and receiver with DSMR protocol provides precision and total control. The DX2E allows you to properly adjust your rudder travel. Other features include low-battery detection and failsafe.
High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
The high-torque steering servo offers peace of mind because the boat will stay in the direction you point it despite tricky water conditions.
