SV Sunbeam – Solar Ferry – Plan

£14.50

Here’s something a little different: a traditional looking craft that relies on ‘alternative energy’ in the form of electricity generated by the solar panels on the roof.

SKU: MB2141 Category:

Full Description

Designed by John Parker, this craft combines a hull of proven low drag design with a brushless motor and large propeller to get the best performance possible from this limited power source. It is a practical working model boat with useable performance, unlike most solar powered model boats, which often have hardly enough power to get out of their own way. It has a back-up battery for overcast days, kept charged by available sunlight.
