    Hello.
    Thank's you Jeremy and Asmithnc.
    I think AirBoats looks the best on grass and water.

    We're presenting mounting for one or two accumulators.

    Hello.
    We were absent for long time. We still build AirBoats but slower than before. We just have no much time for models.
    We just finnished our first test bench. We will test performance of propellers in electric and gas engines on it. These data will be used to build better AirBoats.

    Now some pictures







    Greetings to all AirBoat fans

    Hello.
    We focused on building classic Airboats. So now we're testing diffrent shapes of hulls. Airboat 5 was simple construction however AirBoat 7 has changed sides and front of hull. Bottom has been also changed but it is still flat.
    On photos below you can see two Airboat7 hulls, ribs and bottom is the same in these two models, but one of these has been covered with balsa 3mm, and second linden-balsa plywood 3mm. The difference betwen weight of models is huge. We will see how it affect on controllability of models.

    Airboat hull must moves on water as flat as it must be possible, without unwanted slants
