A really fun build, my compliments on the design, it printed easily and sailed well
I just stumble on the video that you did of the boat.
It's incredible, it flies better than mine, what did you do???
Thank's for building one!
PS, could I suggest that you add the video on this page?
Cheers, it is as you see it in the photo, fixed shaft, three bladed prop running on a 950Kv @ 3s I believe, I found that it required plenty of power to climb out of the water, but once on the plane if you didn't throttle back, so much lift was generated that the prop would break the surface and start to cavitate, causing the boat to sink again, so it was a bit of a balancing act.
I think it would sail better with more weight to make the transition smoother, I was going to try this, but unfortunately the ESC died and I haven't got around to replacing it yet
I'm working on a new set of foils and a trimable back foil.
Hope that it will help.
Anyway, it's great to see your model flying ;-)
Sounds very interesting, I look forward to seeing your new design
