What is the dual speed option?

The dual speed control option in a proportional control of the engine RPM. Our proven dual speed system allows you to have more power in the propeller to assist in maneuvering with strong wind or current. With the dua speed, you can perform five different maneuvers for each engine:

  • Ahead Fast
  • Ahead Slow
  • Neutral

Which charging option is best suited for me?

There are two options when choosing a remote control. The standard, with USB charging, or the wireless charging option.

Both remote options are IP-65 rated.
