1.5mm balsa probably will be fine with just some hard varnish. the lighter servo one might be to small but I know that I've seen some small boats with ones like that those. might get some ideas for the motor and servos from here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1694339
everything else seams great!

prop is to big I think for that high rpm motor. gotta ask somebody with more experience about that though. stick with the old battery because it's lighter.

you could just get the motor, servo, and battery for a v911 heli and use those to power it.

I think I saw this servo being used on another small boat: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=30919

here's a list of parts that probly will work: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1236903
I don't know how you make a flex shaft though

it's so that it's easier to draw; trace it out one way, then flip it over. the spot that looks like it's supposed to be a cut is the center line of the piece. essentially it is half of the piece. hope that helps
