It was an original idea to use one battery to one side. But I noticed it is not a right idea this morning when I tried to measure the current. It will cause unbalanced thrust because of voltage difference between two batteries. Slight difference of voltage causes different RPM. It is simple thing I should notice earlier. Anyway, I will use single battery or connect two in parallel.

I did not make the hardware switch to cut off motors of one side when radder is given during she is on the water. Instead, I mixed from THROTTLE to AUX6 then set another two mixing, from RUDDER to THROTTLE and from RUDDER to AUX6. ( I am using Futaba T12FGA and 8ch Rx). This works perfectly. in this case, CH3 of Rx is for one side ESC and CH7 for the other side.

Looks great !

I see you chose to build in the water rudder. Are you also planning to use differential throttle?

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Craig for cheering me.

Struggling with balsa sheet....
I use Titebond III which is water proof whereas Titebond II is water resistance. But it's color become dark blown when it dry. It makes everywhere looked dirty.

it's coming along mate, messing about with little details like cladding the struts, making, and routing servo leads ect, the boring fiddly little things that don't make exciting viewing, will post an update in the next day or 2.
