Following on from the success of my last air boat (air boat for under 60) I've always harbored a desire to make a truly fast EDF air boat. To date I've seen various cheap fan units strapped to toy boats but nothing that quick. It could be just such an inefficient way to power a boat that it simply isn't possible. Let's give it a go any way. (this will most probably fail and cost far too much money)

well it took some time but eventual got the boat back i the water with a new motor, which was labeled as 2650kv but in reality is only 2150ish kv so it has lost a little speed, still goes well using 6 x 5.5 , more so than the cam speed 6 x 6 .
Best results are with the 6.5 x 6.5.
Will now either put a new original 2250kv back on and try the 6.5 x 6.5 with that.
Or the slightly lighter 2320kv 2826/ 14

thought I'd start a build log as everyone else's helped me so much in my build.

First is a quick veiw of the apparent changes to the stock set up.

I also removed the plastic covering the hardwood inserts and replaced them with 1/64th ply

Also notice the dent under the fin mount, it looks as though they used a soldering iron to melt away the foam in order to fit the hardwood spars and in doing so accidently gouged a hole in the fuse, no big deal as i'm going to cover the fuse anyway but still anoying.
