Hi Tomo

You can have them do what you want, they are very good for football being so maneuverable. With the maximum motor in them, a 540 they can tow quite well or push barges. I would think they could take on a steering course as well. Think of something for them to do, the only rules there are is in the basic hull shape other than that, think of something for them to try.

Come to the Mayhem Weekend and play some football, or just to see them in action.

Right, I think these are the agred rules:

18" x 8" inch hull size and floor shape as per plan.
Single Motor up to 540 size ( gearing etc. allowed ) eg. 540/550 / Speed 600. ANY gear / belt / magnetic drive you like!
Power - Up to 7.2 volts
SINGLE RUDDER BLADE TYPE up 4" Sq.
Must have a superstructure of some sort.

You can fit steam if you wish,  jet turbines also allowed no IC or Diesel engines or Pulse Jets!

Hi tomo...springer combat is quite good fun .......remember control line aircraft combat , where you tried to cut your opponants streamer , well if you substitute the streamer for a balloon on the stern , and fix a pin to the bows , same game different gravy so to speak.........last man ( springer) with a balloon is the winner.
