My movie about how it swimms.https://youtu.be/FNyGUGvCZgo
The design is not perfect.
I have the same, makes much fun.
If I place propeller, it is not possible to remove deck.
Stern is very weak. I used holes same as servo mount and hole for servo rod is to low and ship gets water during stop or back run.
I used ESC with BLheli software so I can run forward and backward.
Deck could be shorter.
I mount camera near center to have view back.
Back wall, that where you mount engine mount, could be stiffner.
Anyway, GOOD JOB. It gives a lot of fun. It is easy to say what is wrong, but it is difficult to say what is good and how much fun do we get during contruction and play.
You must know that the boat was not originally designed as an air boat.
That's why there's a problem with the deck.
I can still open and close it because my deck is made from PETG. It's so flexible you can squeeze it together. Then it can be snapped in from the side.
The deck is so long because you need the space for the first version.
And yes, please just run it forward, this is not a boat to go backwards ;-)
What's really absolutely perfect, can you describe what you mean?
Can you add photos of the boat and the inside of the boat?
Nice video. Thanks for sharing.
