SHARK!
« on: February 28, 2007, 01:06:23 PM »

I saw this empty space and thought I had the perfect model for it, I built it because someone gave me a bit of plastic tubing that was the same diameter as two plastic tumblers I had! I put a 540 in it on 6 cells, too large a prop and burned out the motor after 5 minutes! I never even got to try it beside swimmers! Still got it,so I may get it ready again, I am using the radio gear in other projects. You can never have too much radio gear! My friend took video on his phone of it in our local river and it looks real! I would get out of the water if I saw it. Have fun Andy M.

Somebody beat me to it! Is it playing the Jaws theme as it goes? I even thought about doing one to sit in!(I have a sketch somewhere,I will look it out and put it on here) But I built a speedboat instead. Less chance of being arrested! I have been told off for speeding (a bit) on Loch Lomond,but I think it was because the boat is half the size of a normal speedboat,it looks twice as fast! That's my excuse anyway. I was even thinking about building a crocodile head out of blue foam, but I thought that most people would think it was just a floating log! Time for me medication now. Have fun, Andy M.
