    X-boat

    Here she is. http://www.rc-airboats.com/gallery/v...ame=The-X-boat This boat is pulled by the lowly os engines LA 40. she is roughly 30 inches length, 24 inches wide amd weighs about 3lbs. I tried to use many traits seen in other boats. with some tweaking she has gotten up to around 30 mph, maybe more (she has had stright line issuues-engine torque, I think.). I'll try to get vids soon. Sean

    RE: X-boat

    The design is similar to Japanese made airboats.
    The desire to improve is a concept as old as the evolution of man. There are no limits!

    RE: X-boat

    GulfstreamI,
    Yes, as stated, probably at a different site, this boat was an attemp to blend the manuvering of one of my prior boats(tail/rudders) with the speed of the Japanese boats, and to try the teardrop or spoon shaped pontoons - hence the name of the boat, X for experimental. Looking at the way the boat rides(she likes to ride on the last 3" of the port side pontoon - and nothing else), I may be getting some WIG going on, too.
