The one.The only.The air pop-pop boat on an rc prop.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kb3j7...e=channel_page

After a week of figuring out how to built this I did it
It aint RC ofcourse but I thought i'd share.

P.S. Dont worry the prop is still perfectly fine , the screw on the prop was a little loose i screwed it in , thats why it gave that wierd sound at the end.

No, it is electric. Listen to the motor whine at the end when the prop comes loose and the motor unloads.

Tommorow , if the weather allows ill test it in a pond.

the keel is made of my old boat base that was made of styrofoam.the holes are from the nails i used to secure my old motor .
