    wing in ground effect boat

    the russians first exploited this concept. a wing flying cloes enought to the water or runway for land planes creates a cushion of that supports the craft greatly increaseing range and speed. i was looking to design and bulid on of these veichles but i need some help on the design. i had a crude drawing of one but i don't think it will work.

    RE: wing in ground effect boat

    Thinking this will be more suited to the RC airboat forum considering the propulsion method.
    One of the better gas boat picture sites - http://imageevent.com/justaddwata

    I think this forum emcompasses WIG's as well

    I am a big fan of the technology, just not a good pilot. This is what led me to airboats

    I recommend SE Technologies site as a starting point - http://www.se-technology.com/wig/index.php
    There is a model section there.

    Try http://www.du-groundeffect.com/wig.html as well.
