Sorry guys, but the computor that had the plans on it crashed and burned. I lost every thing, my hands are full at the moment with building airboats, as soon as I can get to it I'll make a better set and then post it on a new post.

Maybe one of the guys, that already received the plans, could mail you back a copy?

If it's possible, I'd like to have the plans too.

Jan, are you getting into airboats now too?!!

Be carefull, you'll get hooked like I did. They're a blast....an amphibious vehicle that can go over pretty much anything flat. I can't wait untill it snows!

Have fun,
Bryan

Default RE: Basic 32" airboat plan

I am currently planning out a scale looking "swamp style" airboat. I have no plans & have a nitro 1.08 to power it with. I was wondering if someone had any idea of dimensions that i should be doing. I see the Cajun gator is 28 x15 x2.5 running a .61. Being that a 1.08 is almost twice the engine should I just double the dimensions?

WOW foam!!! How does it run??

I was planning on ply & some glass for reinforcment. I was planning 36 x 24 x 4 for my dimentions.

I would gather that your foam one would be a bit lighter, so how does it handle?

Thanks,

Tom

Default RE: Basic 32" airboat plan

I haven't ran the boat much at all. The boat weighs 8 lbs 15 oz ready to run. I'm having engine problems with the 108 and haven't had much spare time to tinker with it. I have ran it shortly on grass a few times. When the 108 straightens up it'll be a BEAST. Here is a link to the building of it.
http://rcairboats.net/v-web/bulletin...topic.php?t=21

I ran the 108 in the past on a sheet metal hull that weighed 14 lbs. The boat ran dry fairly well, struggling a bit on steep inclines.
But on water it would run about 35 (guestimating)

When I get a break in my boat building, I'll tinker with it more. Right now its just absorbing space.

DADADDYRO,
Thanks for the info!

Was your setup pusher? I want to set it up as a pusher but the only prop that I have found thats a pusher & composite is the APC 14 x 6. (which is a bit small for a 1.08) I would like use a
15 x 6, 15 x 8 or a 16 x 6. But all I can find is the Zingers & there wood. I'm nervous about exploding props.

Sorry to hear about the problems with your engine, what brand is it?

I've got just about everything hammered out except how to do the blade cage.


See your down a little south of me!! My cousin lives on the lake. I'm only a few hours away here. How'd you like our summer of storms?[:@]

CFRACR,

My 108 is a puller prop and I'm running the 14-6 on it. It's the Magnum 108. It actually belongs to my little brother. He hasn't used the motor in a while, so I got it from him and built a new boat for it. He said it ran last time he run it, then it sat in storage for a while. I really haven't had the time to mess with it. I'm going to clean the carb real well and start there.

I just obtained a weedeater motor with prop adapter...thinking about going foam on it also. It'll be my first gasser. Even thinking of going pusher on this on. I gotta look for some pushers myself. If I come across any, I'll pass the info.

Yes we are close. Maybe we can get together sometime and run. Where at does your cousins live?

I survived the storms well. No water damage. Lost about a bundle of shingles, 8' of soffit, it destroyed my privacy fence, and ripped up my little barn a bit. Other than that we made it.

Yes I know what you mean. My 1.08 was on a plane that met its fate about 5 years ago. I was so unhappy that day that I just shoved all the PIECES into a large trash bag and took it home. The bag ended up in my attic and was just revived a few months ago. I had never even cleaned it off after the crash, so I ended up breaking it all down and cleaning the whole thing. I built a test stand and it fired right up. So I began thinking of something to do with it. I have 4 planes(2 float planes) & two other boats. I will never build/buy another plane large enough to put that 1.08 in, so thats why I came up with building a Beast of a Airboat.

The clutch factor on weedeater engines is nice. Also the fact they run forever on gas thats cheap. I have seen a few weedeater airboats in my day.

My cousin just moved and I can't think of where she moved to at the moment, I know its on the lake somewhere S.E.

Yes we may be able to get together sometime. I run Boats & sometimes my float planes at a lake here in Sarasota. Right on I-75. There is a boat club that usually meets on Sundays. There's some guys that have boat that break the sound barrier.

Storm wise I ended up with about the same, some shingle loss, some wood fence loss, some trees & a real big mess!!

Dadadyro, I finished up on the hull layout. Glassing in the stringers & finishing the inside decking is next. I ended up with 34x20x3 as dimentions.

No pics yet, I will take some later in the project. Just hard enough to find time to work on it & be in the mood as well. I have basically built the hull, I'm going to lay glass & stringers next. Then will come the decking. & figuring out a engine mount situation.

If this plan works out well & it rides nice I'm going to scale it up & build a 1/4 airboat with a Saito FA300 Flat twin or 5 cylinder.

I have that inner desire for a real exotic powerplant also one day. I haven't seen anything like that on a boat. I would love to see it.

Keep in touch.

Will do

I need to finish this one first. I want to see how it performs before I would do another scaled up with the engine that I spoke of. I am watching EBAY on some, you never know. I may find a engine and purchase, then I'll have to build one!!!
