We'll see. If we get some snow I may take it out for a maiden.

Nice try, but she don't fly....

It was perfect conditions to try to maiden this thing, but unfortunately, it just didn't have enough get up and go to get up and go. So, I replaced the EDF pod with a motor and prop. I started with a 6x4 prop, but it would barely move on my grass lawn. I replaced it with a 7x5 and she's zippy now.

When I first put it in the water (not on video) it weathervaned sideways and flipped over and that was with just the whisper of a breeze. The vertical stab is too small. I added a piece of FFF to make it bigger.

By changing out the pod to a motor and using a smaller battery I have reduced the AUW by 90 grams. That should help a little. I hope to get it out soon and try again.

The uncut video (it's short)

Nice Video. If your goal was wanting to fly, it was likely disappointing. On the other hand if you were enjoying a sweet looking RC airboat, you were spot-on! ;0) Throw that vid onto the boat thread and see what they think. (just a thought).
