Wakeboarding with a Remote Controlled Watercraft

Wakeboarding with a Remote Controlled Watercraft



maker duo Justin and Eddie created the RC ski it's a radio-controlled device that allows you to wig board completely by yourself with no one else controlling the jet ski anything with the term RC has my interest so I'm ready to dig in and see how this was designed so this is the piece that we're gonna mount on the ski to receive the signals and actually control the watercraft from this piece yes okay now once this piece is mounted to the ski we're gonna use this piece which is actually our handle we'll hold on to and it's gonna be tethered to the receiver via some ropes or cables right can we dig in here please all right okay you ready this is basically your standard 2.4 gigahertz RC radio system you find in Airlines or RC cars now so this is actually the throttle it's like a motorcycle right can we take this apart if you want to use it later what makes the RC ski so unique is its watertight transmitter located in the handlebar the makers engineered a one-of-a-kind system using a row of magnets on either side of aluminum tubing which is housed in the throttle when the throttle is turned the magnets follow each other sending a signal which communicates to the rest of the system whether to start stop or accelerate the jet ski remotely ensuring a leak-proof device we've got a cut off switch right so that's like if you go down in the water it turns off the craft correct and it stops I got to admit I'm just a little nervous but I'm ready so you ready I'm ready okay let's do this the RC ski makers claim that most people can learn how to use this product on their first try so I'm anxious to see if Brook can actually do it and if he agrees that safety is a concern there goes all right yeah look at him go he's getting that donuts out that he's either doing donuts or he lost control he's moving he could do that all day long at first some of the controls were a little tricky but being able to tube and operate a jet ski at the same time completely by myself is awesome to be honest I did not have that throttle pegged at all our next version is definitely gonna be a lot more intuitive with a push button instead of the wheel throttle so I got the hang of how to operate the RC ski but even though I haven't been on a wakeboard in years I have got to try this out I mean that's what it was intended for oh all right man I have to give you an A for effort that did not look easy dude yeah well it wasn't easy I mean wakeboarding isn't easy right today we proved it works but I gotta say it's not exactly for beginners but I think you've got a start of something that's really amazing thank you so much jessica's Brookes not a good wakeboarder doesn't mean the RFC skis not a good device
