Rc Boat Transmitter and Receiver Replacement and Review

Is your RC Boat malfunctioning?  Then it may be time to replace your boat’s transmitter and receiver. In remote control lingo the transmitter and receiver is commonly called the radio. That’s why sometimes people call their rc boat a radio control boat. That’s an old fashioned term, I like to call them remote control boats. Regardless of what you call it the radio, or remote, or Transmitter and receiver is the brains of your remote control boat. they control steering, speed, distance etc., anything you want your vehicle to do can be controlled with the transmitter and receiver.  If you can plug in a usb cable then doing your own upgrade to your rc boat is simple. Motors not responding, short range? Not only will it fix it, a transmitter upgrade is affordable. Priced at about $30 dollars it won’t break the bank, if you would have bought this a couple of years ago you would have expected to pay much more. What’s cool about the transmitter is that the receiver is included too. The Transmitter below is loaded with features. What would you do if you had two rc boat’s with the same frequency? Well you already know that if they are the FM Type like a 40 mhz or a 27 mhz then they won’t work at the same time. In that case then you’re a good candidate for swapping your transmitter and receiver for one of these 2.4 ghz systems.
On a scale of 1 to 10 how hard is it to replace your transmitter and receiver, it’s about a 3 or 4 depending on how handy you are. While we’re on the subject of transmitters and receivers, did you know that you can hook up most anything that runs on dc to these? You could hook up lights, motors, sirens and control them from across the street.
The Transmitter and receiver set we featured below is available online and is the lowest price on we found, it’s the FlySky FS-GT3B
