Ripmax Fishing People Baiting 500 RTR (Grey)


The Baiting 500 was produced by the 'Fishing People' for hobby fisherman that are looking for a compact and capable bait boat at a sensible price point. The hopper has a 500g bait capacity while also towing your line to the right position to release in one go, or you can use the magnetic releases to tow you line anywhere in the lake. It has been built with durability in mind and has a tough moulded hull with a large carry handle in the middle.

Bait Hopper

The Baiting 500 has a large hopper in the centre of the boat that can take approximately 500 grams of dry bait and there is a notch in the door allowing you to tow your line out at the same time. Press the release button on the controller and the door springs back releasing your line and the bait at the same time. You can then drive the boat back and reload setting multiple lines around your chosen fishing spot.

Magnetic Pothook Line Release

You can also attach a magnetic pothook to your line and tow your line (a separate line to the one already in the hopper) and with a gentle tug on your line you can disconnect the magnet to position the line exactly where you want it. You can also tow the line to a desired spot, stop the boat, then if the fish takes the bait then the force will also disconnect the magnet. This gives you the advantage of changing your fishing spot without reeling the line in constantly, you just drive to a new spot!

Night Time Use

The Baiting 500 is fitted with front and rear LED lights for night time use. They are inset slightly into the top of the boat avoid shining directly at the fish but they are raised slightly to illuminate possible obstacles. The Front lights are blue and the rear lights are red so you can always see what direction you are pointing. There is also a switch if you would like to turn them off in the day time.

Long Duration and Replicable Battery

The included battery is capable of 1.5 hours of use, this equates to using the boat about 50 times driving it about 50 metres each time. If that's not enough there is a easy access battery hatch allowing you to swap the battery for another (O-FP315110) in very little time, so you can take as many as you want. The charger is easy to use and included with the boat.

Tough Carry Bag

We have included a very strong carry bag for easy transport. It not only carries the boat but it has space for the transmitter, batteries and some spare parts (more magnetic pot hooks etc..). There are two strong nylon carry handles and the bag is bright green so it is easily seen.

Low battery Warning

The LED lights designed to flash when the battery runs low (even when switched off) so you can tell that the battery has run low. They have a 10 minute warning period where they will continue to flash so you have plenty of time to return the bank.

Quiet Drive System

The motors and propeller are optimised to reduce noise to produce the minimum disturbance to the fish as possible. Each propeller is surrounded by a large guard to help prevent the ingestion of weeds and other rubbish that could interfere with the propellers.

Easy Maintenance

The Baiting 500 was designed with a modular construction in mind. This allows you to easily maintain your own boat and replace parts if damaged or worn out.
