Another feature is the thrust remote control paddle. This enables the user to hold a paddle the same way as a standard kayak one and navigate by dipping it in the water and simulating the rudder.
At the hand positions there are reasonable thrust buttons at the left and right side of the paddle stem. Green button for activation of the electric propulsion (3 gears) and red button for stop.
Compared to outboard propulsion kayaks that lack the paddle, we went the way to have full control over the kayak with the paddle (moving forward and navigating).
We have tested several rudder types, but always the paddle proved itself to perform the best and secures full control over the electric kayak in any situation.
