Using RC boats in Switzerland/Zurich

Hello all,

I went to Zurich lake today with my ~1m long 3d printed electric rc boat and a guy working in food place near water started to tell me it is forbidden and the police is patrolling... I got seriously confused as I've seen ready to use rc boats on stores like Digitech. The only thing I could think of was that it might be dangerous for people swimming, but I obviously stayed far from anyone.

Is it illegal to use rc boats in Switzerland? Or am I missing something?

Depending where, but in or to close to a nature reserve it would be prohibited.
Check with the local authorities, they should know.

Just found this one:

In addition you should not navigate in nature protection zones and inside the yellow buoys.

Driving your boat around Halbinsel Au could be an issue. Driving near Badewiese Naglikon should be o.k when there are no swimmer (AFAIK there are no yellow buoys there).

Here the actual nature protection zones:
