Spektrum DSM technology has eliminated many of the old headaches and hassles RC enthusiasts had to deal with. Whether you are into cars, helicopters, trucks or airplane, there's a Spektrum solution for you. But what about boats? Up to this point, using a Spektrum receiver in a boat wasn't recommended as an optimal solution. That is until now. Spektrum has announced their Marine series of equipment that is designed and tested specifically with the needs of RC boaters in mind. This new gear, made up of the new MR3000 receiver and updated DX3S transmitter, provides the same quality RF link and connectivity that Spektrum has become known for.

We managed to get some time with this new gear in one of our favorite boats, the Pro Boat Formula FASTech. This brushless boat can eat up a lot of real estate in a short amount of time. We also got some key installation tips and tricks from Spektrum's surface guru, Blake Good, before taking the Formula FASTech out for some testing. Check out our video below for all the info on this latest innovation from Spektrum.
