Gas powered RC fishing boats are rare - although they offer greater endurance and higher speeds, they are noisier and require plenty of maintenance, when compared with electric RC fishing boats. Also, when on idle, electric motors are simply turned off, while gas motors must work and thus create additional noise and spend fuel. If you have hooked larger fish, there is always a danger of fish pulling boat under the water - gas operated boats don't 'like' that at all. Due to modern lithium batteries, electric RC boats are very close to performances to gas powered RC boats. And changing fully charged and discharged batteries is often faster and much cleaner job, than refueling gas RC boat.
A Japanese company has just released the definitive gadget for techno fishermas: a new RC fishing boat called KAMOME. There are similar boats made for RC fishers, but this is the first one professional build with a radio controlled fishing road, a sonar to locate fishes (with a range of 60 metres) and a GPS system. This RC boat is one meter long, weights 11 kg and is able to catch 2KG fishes.

Maximum speed is not very important for RC fishing boats, since actual fishing is done at rather low speeds - 1-3 knots, or even slower - live bait will do its job of luring predator fish and RC boat will 'slowly' cover large area around your location.
- searching and locating game fish during fishing from the shore and anchored boats. Although relatively small, RC fishing boats have enough space and power to carry an onboard fish finder that send data to receiving station. This can be expensive, especially if longer ranges are required.
