YAPT Yet Another PT 109 Maiden Voyage

PT with duel ESC and proportional steering but rudder server not on yet. steering is from props only.

Should have painted the bumper (ping pong ball) read and called her Rudolph...

daemoun,

I am not a boat guy but aren't most military boats slow? Holy cow, that thing came unglued while coming back towards the camera. I'm with Kmot, take it onto the ocean and let her rip.

TFS

kmot - taking it to the inlet later today or tomorrow! one more test run to see how far my radio works.

badpilotto - the PTs could do about 40 knots, which isn't bad for an 80 foot boat. Don't know if i'm scale or way over, but who cares!!!

what do you think about the maneuverability with just props?
