The UDI Xiphactinus combines a high performance injection moulded hull and the latest electronics to produce an easy to use speed boat with stunning performance. Supplied in RTR (Ready to Run) format the electronics are all supplied pre-installed and ready for use so all you need to do it charge the battery, fit it and add batteries to the controller (not included) to be ready to blast across the water at high speed.
Modern Reinforced Hull
The Xiphactinus’s clean, modern hull design is built up in layers for maximum rigidity where it matters most, the transom and ride pad. Lightweight yet incredibly strong, Xiphactinus’s ABS hull is designed to withstand the stress of high-voltage brushless horsepower, without the weight penalty of a fiberglass hull. The transom bulkhead also incorporates bosses for the trim tabs, turn fins, rudder support, and drive strut, eliminating the need for additional hardware inside the hull. In the boat’s bow, can be installed with rubber bumpers, adding security as it further stiffens the hull.
Top Speed 35KM/H
2.4GHz Radio System
The boat is supplied in RTR format using a high quality 2.4GHz marine radio system for interference-free operation.
Self-Righting Sleek Hull Design
The streamlined hull is tuned for optimum handling and is able to run in relatively small bodies of water. There are two turn fins for increased agility and two adjustable trim tabs so you can set the angle the boat runs in rough or calm water. The hull of the boat was also designed to be able to turn back over in the unlikely event that it flips upside down.
The hull has been carefully designed for optimum water resistance. Under the top canopy hatch there is a second hatch with five locking catches and a foam seal forming a highly effective water barrier. Inside the boat generous amounts of sealant are used around the motor shaft and water pipes for a tight seal.
Brushed Water Cooled Motor
The boat is powered by water cooled brushed motor allowing it to reach speeds of approximately 25km/h straight out of the box!
The boat is supplied with a 7.4v 1100mAH Lithium battery for the best performance and duration. The 2x 3.7v format may seem unusual at first glance but it allows you to charge the battery using a 5V USB port with the included charger.
Low Battery Alarm
The built-in telemetry will alert you when the boat battery is running low on power. The controller will emit a distinctive beeping noise as an alarm to and remind you to bring the Rapid back to land.
Poor Signal Alarm
If you operate the Rapid too far away causing the 2.4GHz signal to weaken then the controller will alert you to bring the boat closer to keep a strong signal.
