    RE: PICS OF YOUR AIRBOATS


    Here are my two favorites that I've built. Inspired by Hooty301, These are "Kamikaze's". The smaller one I named the MiniKaze which was built for a .29, but hauls the mail with a .46...

    RE: PICS OF YOUR AIRBOATS



    Platypus - converted to electric last weekend. Got a few ESC heat issues but hopefully a chunk of aluminium will act as a good heat sink and all will be good.

    RE: PICS OF YOUR AIRBOATS

    Here's a few photos of my other boats. I have built a total of 6 boats.

    This is my Selph Inflicted SI-3 Hydro copycat I built in 10 days. I couldn't afford the plans, so I guessed on the measurements and built it. This was built all with material I already had on hand, total cost to build - $4 for pushrod boots. Powered with an Enya SS .30bb engine w/ TT46 muffler, and 9x6 APC prop. 14,000rpm.


    Short video of the boat in action:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=159nQIeeMys

    Got a new one on the build table, another SI3 copy. v3.0 is .60/.90 sized and is shooting for 55-60mph

    My big outrigger that needs new sponsons built for it (too small, wrong rake angle, etc):

    Handmade rudder and control horns, with break-away.


    This boat will start its life over with new sponsons, and with any luck, a high rpm screaming .56lx Jett FIRE engine. I'm saving my nickels and dimes...

    RE: PICS OF YOUR AIRBOATS

    I just finished a Electric Conversion of my Dumas Big Swamp Buggy. I increased the height of the motor mount stand, so I could mount up to a 15" prop. I also completely covered the top of the boat. It's powered by a Neo 60 410Kv, Swinging a 15 x 7 3 blade Master Airscrew prop, Cobra 80 Amp ESC w/ 6A BEC, G-Force 6s 22.2v 30c 40000mAh Lipo, Guidence is by HiTec 3ch Tx and Atom 3ch Rx. I put strapping tape on the bottom, So I could run it on the grass, It's a little slow taking off, But once it gets going, It does pretty good. I won't get to try it on the Lake until next Spring, When we go over to Eastern Wa. If we get any snow this Winter, I'll see how it does on the Snow.

    I don't know why the photo's aren't showing up. The Image file said that they were successfully loaded? I wonder what I did wrong? Well I tried it again and it worked.

    RE: PICS OF YOUR AIRBOATS


    ORIGINAL: A1RENCH

    Hey thanks guys. Ya'll got any idea where I might find a pair of those engine stands?Do they sell them seperate from the kit?
    I've been wondering too, what happens to the engine when you roll an airboat? That hot metal hitting cold water can't be good! So do you guys dump the water out and fire it back up, or is a tear down and clean up in order, or does it destroy the engine?
    Thanks

    the Aquacraft alligator tour boat uses the same mounts i think they are also on ebay

    Using a glow engine as a pusher setup? Any issues with overheating and stalling with the engine?

    RE: PICS OF YOUR AIRBOATS

    After a dunking, I think the best thing to do is pull the plug, run the starter to clear the water out, and run the motor. You don't want water in the ball bearings even overnight.  That is what we do for the floatplanes.  I haven't finished my airboat yet, but it should be the same drill.

    RE: PICS OF YOUR AIRBOATS

    Anytime I dunk my airboat engines, I clear the water out and run a full tank rich at WOT as much as possible. I use all castor oil so after a hard-run tank of fuel, I do not worry about any water left in the engine.

    If I dunk my 4-stroke, I'd pull it apart and flush/oil it. So far, I haven't had to do this though.

    Pusher configurations are so inefficient for a number of reasons, I'm not sure why so many people insist on running the engine that way. I suppose the hardcore "scalers" want the pusher, but a single cylinder engine isn't scale anyway.

    That is really cool, but you may want to turn the prop around so the lettering faces the engine.
