Hydrofoam XXX Semi-scale- build thread
Whatever that means. I guess they all are. I haven't gave up on my airfoil version but it is so Ugly I really have no inspiration so..... I started this one. The fuse took me 2 hours from start to this picture point.
20" at tips
Elevons are 2"x16
rudders are 3"x4-1/2
weight so far................10.6 oz. uh oh better put it on a diet. My Nippy motor on order should pull it fine. I'm guestimating 26oz auw.

I am working on reproducing Mike Connally's boat. I'm adding a simetrical airfoil deck and "6 degree edge" to the sponsons. A rewound CD motor and a 6 inch prop. So far, the sponsons are 90% complete.

Nippy mtr. installed/ Removable intake for gear.
I am all ready for control surfaces. It balances out right now 1" behind the leading edge. This design if made smaller would work well with other tail heavy models to to the pod being shifted forward. Paint will come after maiden possibly Sunday.

Sure Made a fast Boat........I shot for 20% back from the leading edge. Flew like it was tail heavy even when balanced at the leading edge. Had plenty of power. I think it had up thrust issues, due to the height of the stick mount. I am done with flying boats for a while and back to my j250 Nemesis sized pylon racer. Doug
