A Spektrum DX3 Transmitter and waterproof SR6110AT 6-Channel Telemetry Receiver keeps everything tightly connected for an interference free operation with built-in telemetry. The Blackjack also features an impact resistant polycarbonate hull, polycarbonate canopy with aluminium thumb screws, a clean moulded composite interior, and an aluminium rudder and propeller strut.

Polycarbonate Canopy

Durable polycarbonate provides a watertight seal and the thumb screws mean no tape is necessary to retain the canopy on to the hull.

Included Boat Stand

This custom moulded plastic stand fits perfectly to the contour of the hull providing a rock stable platform to display or work on your boat. This boat stand will last for the life of your boat without the need to worry about water rotting a wooden stand.

Impact Resistant Polycarbonate Hull

Two piece shoe box construction for extreme hull durability. Moulded composite material is much more impact resistant than fibreglass.

Clean Moulded Composite Interior

This adds rigidity and strength to the hull. The interior is wood-free to avoid rot and decay. The grease cup prevents grease from spreading inside..

Aluminium Propeller Strut and Rudder

Both the propeller and rudder feature anodised aluminium. The rudder has a special break away feature that protects the hull from damage in case floating debris is struck.
