The powerboat ban refers to real boats, and yet I see a “Pirate cruise” operating. 🙂
Model boats regularly use that area of Lake Tuggeranong and when the club wants to go over the other side of the lake, they ask Local Govt for a permit which is more of a notification really.
When I asked the powers that be about the powerboat ban application, I was informed that model boats do not count and I was free to operate an electric or otherwise powered radio controlled boat within the normal constraints of not annoying anyone else. I thought that was pretty fair.

What about a 1:1 full scale model that is radio controlled by the operator sitting in the boat? Seems like an obvious question…

There are probably size/weight/power limits

Awesome! This is one of those rare times when the scaled down version looks better than the real racing!!

AWESOME!!! About time this lake was put to some sort of good use instead of a shopping trolley parking area. Would this be allowed on LBG???

Better watch out for the fun police though, might be too noisy for those wackers.

Looks like good fun. Bet it scares the shit out of the fish, though.

That is seriously cool.

Does the powerboat ban on Canberra’s lakes not include unmanned vehicles?
