How about a bit of up thrust to push it down? Looks good though

I'll give it a try tomorrow. The side skids (not shown) that I was experimentin with either made it completely uncontrollable or gave it so much drag that it would turn. I still have to try the fins.

Airboats skid. That's just what they do, and is part of the fun. I think you may be looking for something more like an offshore speedboat.

When my flying field flooded this last spring, I built an airboat out of spare parts, and had similar results. I searched out some local rc boat guys, and they were relatively impressed, but reinforced that it was the general design of the boat that made it do that, not some fault in the building process.
