Fast Electric

Contact: Paul Upton-Taylor
The MPBA Fast Electric Section has its own dedicated website where detailed information can be found at


The section is divided into 2 regions : Northern Amp Draggers in the North and Electra in the South.

Electrically powered boats have held the R/C model boat World Speed Record for a number of years. Interestingly, advances in Battery and Motor technology have produced speeds that cannot be matched by IC powered boats. Races are held in a number of classes covering Submerged Drive, Surface Drive and Hydroplanes.

The Fast Electric Section currently holds two National events a year. The National Championships and the SAWS (Speed Records) event.

The National Championships are used as the qualifying event for inclusion in the MPBA Team, entered for the NAVIGA World Championships.
