Air Boat
« on: July 14, 2010, 07:28:53 pm »

Hi Fellow boaters,
A few pictures of my latest weekend build an air boat just in case the pond weeds over. 1/12 scale 16inches X 8inches, built from 3mm & 1.5mm plastic card, graupner speed 400 motor on 8.4v driving 5 inch 3 bladed pusher prop. All up weight 16ozs.
Just need to paint it now.

Regards
Destroyer42

Nice, how does it go? I fitted a small removable water rudder to improve steering.Does yours steer OK?

Hi Nordsee,
Turns on a mark. No problem with steering at all. However I going to fit another motor to speed it up a bit more. I,m going to try a Graupner 500sp race 32,000rpm if that's not fast enough i will go brushless.
