small dozer boat


hello everyone
first of, i'am new here
but i have build some other small boat's. i'am from the netherlands and i'am only 14 years old so my english might not be as good as some of you here


but i started building a small dozer boat, i saw a video on youtube about someone that has build one, i asked him for plans and he gave them to me
so i just started with the hull.
i also bought some electronics so they came in and they fit. they are also light weight. i only need to order a small low voltage servo and a 100 mah 1s lipo, i also needed a little prop so i started building a 9 mm prop out of a little piece of metal

Welcome to the forum.
That looks like a challenging project. You will probably need to lose as much weight as possible by reducing the length of the leads and similar actions.

thanks
it is a challenging project, i already removed the plugs (not the battery plug)
and the motor leads are already really long so i could schorten the esc wires too
ow and i removed the receiver's casing

Great start!
Cant wait to see how it works for you.
Where did you get the little ESC from?

These tiny ones are almost more work than bigger ones, they are so hard to work on.

Cheers
