Ever wanted to feel the power of the driving force of the Racing Power Boats? come and build your own RC Speed boat. Build a wireless remote controlled boat which travels a specified race track in the least possible time.

  • Maximum dimensions of the boat at any point of time during the race
    • Length: 80 cm
    • Breadth: 35 cm
    • There is no constraint on the height.

(Note: The above-mentioned dimensions include the rudder and propeller of the boat)

  • Boat can be powered either by an IC engine or a DC Electric motor. Use of any other kind of power source is strictly prohibited. Boat must have only one of these power source for propulsion.
  • If powered by an IC engine, the capacity (displacement volume) should not be more than 3.2cc.
  • If powered by electric motors, the potential difference across the motor terminals should not be more than 12 volts DC.
  • In addition to the power sources for propulsion you may use DC motors or servo motors for rudder controller.
  1.  Teams must be of a maximum of 5 members.
  2. Participant must be a full time student enrolled in undergraduate or postgraduate programme from any recognized university or college. Any professional body other than student are not allowed in this competition.

The following characteristics of the bridge will be judged.
