Radio Ranger Rc Fishing Boat Modification

15 Nov

Turning the Radio Ranger Rc Fishing boat into a Rocket Rc Fishing Boat is not as complicated as it sounds. Buying your own parts for the modifications also gives you a better range of options you can put into your new rc fishing boat project.
One of the main features of the Radio Ranger as is right out of the box is how simple the electronics are compared to a $600 hobby rc boat like the Traxxas Spartan.
Unfortunately, there really isn’t a rc boat on the market size wise with hobby electronics under about $500.
What we’re going to show you below is a simple, and affordable way to get all the hobby upgrades for a fraction of the price of a hobby grade boat. Plus if you put your mind to it there are dozens of interesting new rc options you can build into your new mod.
First a little basics to know and then it is pretty easy to go from there building your ultimate Rc Fishing Machine.
The receiver (black box) in the boat, I call it the Brain of the boat, basically that’s what it does, it runs all the boat functions. When you move something on your transmitter it tells the receiver box to do something. The neat part about a hobby grade receiver box is there are different channels, I like to call them outlets, or plugs, to plug things in to. Depending on how many channels, (or plugs) your receiver box has will determine how many attachments or how many combinations of options you can install into your boat.
For instance, what are some of the options you might want for your Ultimate Rc Fishing Boat? Besides motors and steering, lets see. You can add lights, and its easy, today you can get an led strip of lights that just plug into your receiver box, no tricky wiring to it, just plugs into your receiver, same as the other options we’ll look at here.

These Lights are just a few of the many optional light configurations, there are also light strips to illuminate the whole boat. A simple option to light up your fishing boat without any modifications is simply buying those battery operated lights and putting it inside the hull of your boat. We’ve done that too, turns your Radio Ranger into a big Light Bulb. Now these lights and other lights are available on Ebay, or Aliexpress too for $2-$3 each.

 

 

Moving on, how about a Grabber attachment?

These are just a few of the possibilities for modifying your Radio Ranger Rc Boat. Later we’ll go into some of the science of how everything works together. You should be able to research Rc Boat Modifications on Youtube and learn the simple basics for your new boat. Another good place for researching rc boat modifications is some of the rc forums like RcGroups or RcUniverse, once you get on their site click on forums, then boats then electric boats, you can also enter modifications into the search bars.

New Radio Ranger ll, Opening the Box, Unboxing

25 Jan

A Glimpse into What is Included with The New Radio Ranger ll. The Radio Ranger also includes The Rc Fishing Pole, Fishing Line, Bobber and Hook. So just charge the boat battery and you’re ready for fishing. The Radio Ranger is also a big boat, at almost 3 feet long!

Two Ways to Catch Fish.

Pulling in the Fish WIth The Boat.

Attach the line on the end of Rc Fishing Pole, bait the hook, or attach a spinner or lure. When a fish hits you’ll see the bobber and the tip of The Rc Fishing Pole go down, set the hook by tapping the trigger on the remote once or twice.

Tip: When pulling in the fish with the boat the largest fish recorded is about 4 lbs., a big catfish! Its a good idea to let the fish pull the boat around until you see the fish getting tired, its easier to drive it in when its not fighting as much.

Tip: Using Waterproof Hatch Tape will help insure that if the boat happens to go under for a moment that the electronics will survive.

Using The Line Release Feature:

Most useful to get your line out far distances and release the line where you want. Also using the line release you can catch any size fish because you are using your regular fishing pole also.

Use the line release pads, put one on the tip of The Rc Fishing Pole and the other one on your fishing line (from your fishing pole) above your baited hook a few inches or a few feet depending how deep you want your bait while you drive it out. Allow the line out from your fishing rod while you drive the boat out to your fishing spot. Either leave the line attached until a fish hits or give it a tug to release the line from the boat.

Chumming for Fish:

There is an additional feature to use The Radio Ranger for fishing, chumming! With the optional Bait Bucket, ($9.95) it attaches on The Rc Fishing Pole. Add a handful or two of anything fish eat, attach your baited hook, and line, drive out the boat and drop it off where you want, create a fish feeding frenzy.chum-Bait-Bucket

Rc Fishing Boat Troubleshooting 101-My Radio Ranger has a problem, what do I do next?

16 Dec

My Radio Ranger is not working, what do I do next? Review the troubleshooting sheet below for the most common problems and simple solutions. Click Here Troubleshooting to Print or View a Full Size Troubleshooting Sheet.

Proper Battery Charging-Transmitter Batteries-Unplugged or Reversed Wires are the most common issue you may have with a Radio Ranger Rc Fishing Boat. First charge the boat battery 5-6 hours (not overnight). The charger should be a little hot and the battery kind of warm. If not then the battery or charger could be defective.

The on/off button on the boat has a thick rubber grommet inside that may become stuck that can cause the boat to turn off itself if the button is assembled too tight. The button can be separated into two pieces to loosen it and then reassembled, do not tighten too tight.

Make sure the transmitter batteries are correctly installed, lights on the controller should be solidly lit. One bad battery in the controller will not be strong enough to get a good signal with the boat, if you have a bad transmitter battery it can effect the range and performance. A good idea is to tape your receiver antenna on the side of the hull, (the silver wire inside the boat) away from the rest f the wires. Never pull the antenna or try to extend it to outside the hull. while addressing reception, (a good signal) if the antenna wire is pulled it may become unsoldered inside the receiver.

The older Radio Ranger, Pre-6/2015 does not have a setting on the transmitter. On the new version Radio Ranger make sure the switch above the red light is on the “REV” position. The switch sets the trigger position, you can pull the trigger in or push the trigger to go forward, (the boats do not have reverse).

If the boat operates but will not go straight most likely the wires on one of the motors are backwards. Looking at the back of the boat from behind the boat the right side propeller should spin clockwise, and the left side should spin counter-clockwise. If a motor spins the wrong way just unplug the wires on that motor and reverse the wires. Keep in mind each propeller has a small letter on it, L-Left side, and R-Right side.

When changing a propeller one of the propeller nuts are left handed threads, usually the right side propeller nut. Turn that nut to the left to loosen it.
