Default Atlantic Harbor Tug dropping bombs video

Here is a video from the 4th of July. I know this is a little different than a RC Warship.. but I would say it is very entertaining. Everything is controlled from a Spektrum DX6 radio.

This tug is heavily modified. It uses 4 NiMH packs... one 7.2v circuit for the ESC and RX and a 14.4v circuit for the accessories. It has a dual water cannon mounted on top. The water cannon moves 90 degrees in each direction (side to side) and 60 degrees up and down. The tug also has a very loud air horn. I attached wires to the air horn circuit and ran them to the barge. Once I hit the horn switch 14.4v is sent to an estes rocket igniter which is connected to whatever type of "fireworks" I have on the barge.

We had a lot of fun with this one... and who says that about a tug? LOL!
