mini cracker project? from heli to boat
First of all, hello everyone!
I´ve read you all in this little piece of land (micro and sub micro ), and I´m fascinated with your skills working on little things!.
I came here a week before, looking por a pair of (toy grade) cheap boats for my swimming pool, without having any knowledge on rc boats . But first I realized that I wouldnt be able to use both at same time with toy grade boats. As I continued reading, I discovered your tiny awesome boats.
(I come from multicopters , and I already have a wl toys v929 and a v911, wich I would use for parts if it is possible )
I do not need much power since my pool its only 9x5 mt , and I would like to have both crafts simultaneously in the pool
So I would like to know if it would be possible to create a pair of minicrackers with the following components.
V911 pcb board. -- It will act as receiver, and servo
v911 main motor
150mah 3.7V Li-Poly Battery, also from the v911
30mm 3 bladed propeller 6" (153mm) tube.
Could anyone please tell me if it is possible to make that scratch build?
I´m assuming that I would not have any issues with the balsa, as I´m good at that kind of jobs....

Welcome to the forum.
What size boat are you looking at building? I take it you have found my cracker plans. If so, the V911 brick will not fit at the designed size. You would have to scale it up. By how much, is something I do not know.
Are you looking to "race"? If so, you can go ahead and ditch that prop. If not, then you would need to trim it down.
Let's just start with a size.

Yes! I found your plans. I´m not sure about the size you made it , but I think that 5inch x 2 will be enough. no matter If I have to make it one inch bigger.
the board size ist just 1 inch x1 (2,5 x25 cm) So , I think it will have space in there.
About the prop... I´m going to "race", but just in the pool for fun, with mates.
I assume that you are saying that the prop is not good enough.
I have seen some in hobbyking. Could you tell me another one better than that? Anyway, I will have to order that, because I need a Drive line( and it is included, in the link I wrote, Am I right??)
As you can see I´m a completely NooB at this..

I´ll do my best modifying that little thing, maybe I´ll add it more height , or add two heights like the "wild thing" has in its front.
I´ll also make the drive line as you suggest.
About the propeller, wich is the las thing remaining, (I think ), I can see, that I have to choose from 12 to 15 mm.( is that diameter?) Is it convenient 3 bladed or is it better 2 bladed ?
Have you already produced them ? Are you going to sell them ?
