Description

The Zippkits Tugster was develpoed from the very popular Springer class models. It is a pusher type tug with an Indiana style wheelhouse and is great for just messing about with on the water or for retrieving other boats or floatplanes that are stuck in the middle of the boating lake.

A popular sport with this type of tug is water polo, using a small soccer ball. Set up a couple of goals and get 2 teams together all using Tugsters and have fun trying to score goals against each other. If doing this it is best to add a strip of rubber around your boat as competition can become quite intense and collisions are common place.

The kit is suitable for all skill levels and ages. The kit consists of a complete set of laser cut plywood parts and a very comprehensive illustrated step by step construction guide. A Tugster running hardware set is available as an extra which includes the prop shaft, rudder, tiller arm and propeller etc, see "Related Items".

The Tugster has been designed to use the popular 540/550 size brushed motors and 2 x 6v 4.5A gel-cel batteries. You will also require a 2 channel radio with 1 x steering servo and an electronic speed controller with reverse.
