RE: Rc Alligator
An oar powered viking ship would deffinetly be an unusual rc project. It would be pretty cool, too! I have thought about making an aquatic mammal: beaver, nutria, muskrat, something like that. It could be made out of styrofoam, like the gator, and made to look like it is half submerged. It wouldn't need many features, just an opening mouth to reveal big yellow teeth. I figured I could go to a thrift store and get some kind of nasty looking fur coat, and use it to cover the beast. When I get to the pond, I could throw some sticks in the water, and then use the beaver to go retrieve them. The pond that I use is specifically made for rc boat use, and there is a pathway over looking it. You can hear people walk by talking and then say " ...oh my god! Is that an alligator?! I didnt know we had those up here!" Then they come down for a look and discover it is not real. Good for a laugh. Many people have taken pictures of it, and have posed with it, pretending to feed it, or get bitten by it! I figured a beaver would be even more believeable because we have them around here.
