I originally developed the first of these PT boat plans to build my own Elco PT-109 similar to the 1:32 scale Lindberg plastic kit I had as a teenager. There is a series of pages on this website showing my slow, but steady progress of the RC PT 109. Bangkok and the surrounding areas has a busy race schedule - almost every weekend there is a boat racing event within a hours drive, from 26cc to small electric the competition is fierce and at international standard.
As yet there are no noise restrictions on RC engines - it can be very load at a race meet but it does add to the fun - it has been said that if you have your fingers in your ears it stops you smoking, drinking beer and over eating.
A collection of free download plans for RC powerboats including mono hulls, Tunnel Hull Hydroplanes, 3 Point Hydroplanes and Shovel Nosed Hydroplanes - more plans are added monthly. Plans for the model PT Boat are in Adobe .pdf format and are 300kb in size with 6 large format pages.


A great model to use that old aircraft engine that has been waiting for a project like this. A tunnel hull design that is easy to build, no prop shaft or universal joints to buy - a great project if you have little time to spare.
The plan is intended for balsa construction and should not pose too big a task for someone with a couple of simpler boats under their belt.Balsa is inexpensive, light and require a minimal set of tools to build. I don't perceive the larger boat to be much harder than the smaller to build, but will cost a little more in materials. The general rules all boats are the used of brushed 400 motors with no more that 12 NiCads and No proportional RC control - on off speed control and steering by left or right hand prop full on. The build log and plans have been popular with visitors to this site and I've received requests for a larger, dual-motor option.Both these plans consist of two sheets.


A balsa hull will definitely be the lightest and potentially fastest, but the least durable. The restrictions are enforced so the all contestants are on a level field and the winner is the one with the best ability to trim the boat and operate the controls - not somebody that has invested the most money in the kit.
The plans show a lot of detail, without being intimidating, and could produce a truly handsome boat.The two plan sets are available in a single zip file.
For a single-motor setup, I'd consider up-sizing and centering the rudder for better control.
