Thank you for sharing.. Brutus!

I wonder what mommah was saying??

If it was my wife it would go something like this....

"Finally he gets that stupid engine running so I can record his silly boat.
I could be out shopping with my girl friends but no! Today I get some
free time on my weekend and I have to be here.. pan over to her face
see how happy I am not? Do you see my pain.."

actually (I am not fluent in the language) she says something about "wow it is actually running, and pretty fast", and she complains a bit about the sun (remarkably enough, a dark skin is very NOT desirable in her culture)...

one more side to go... even though it's Pacer 2k 30 minutes it must dry hard longer so progress is slow to my standard of building... I remember when we did not have these glues than it was even longer wait...

So far so good... used 5 minute epoxy for the front deck since clamping became difficult there so holding in place with both hands until dry... Only now did I notice I will have to make some fixture so the engine can turn left/right since there is no provision on these engines to do so... It can be seen on the video's of f.e rapmoz but not really close-up and that is why I did not make a final cut out at the back panel... I did some searching for a scheme of such a device on the net but cannot find anything... I can make something that will work of course but maeby some of you do have a simple drawing as I presume there was no specific rc aftermarket kit for this or was there ? It's been fun so far building this thing... simple when compared to my Blériot I built some years ago.......

You will have to innovate an RC setup.

No big deal the Blériot and all the hardware was more of a challenge
than this boat will ever be.

Thank you for sharing good pics but do you have a vid of it flying?

I find no video's of any projects online. You need a simple sport cam
and mount to a ball cap it's what I do these days so I can enjoy my
field tests and to help do analyse to improve them.
