This is my first time building an airboat and Im trying to make it using Solar Power panels. I know it wont be as powerful as the ones that you guys can design, but I am entering a competition for Solar Powered Boats and I thought an airboat would be a really radical idea!! Every year that I enter, everyone uses underwater propellors, so I want to do something totally out there!!
Being the only girl in the comp, noone ever wants to help me out much
so I thought maybe you fellow Airboatees may be able to help me out a bit!!
I have seven solar panels to place on the top, which will be connected to my motor. I have seen some people use CD covers as their fan. Any other suggestions??
The hull will be made from a surfboard blank (the foam is nice and light).
It will also need a steering system... Ive got the remote control but not sure of the best way to rig up air steering.
Anyways, if anyone can help me out with some suggestions, particular;ly on the most efficient way to wire the motor to the prop and steering would be greatly appreciated!
