Default "Air Hogs Storm_Launcher!"

this thread is for us to talk about what we think the tri_fuision will be like, to talk about what little information we know or just to speculate the idea.i thought it would be a good idea to do this since it is coming out in a month or two, july hopefuly.post youre full sized hydrofoams or home made airhog hydrofoams.but we really need to thank micheal connally for inventing this amazing machine.

i don't think it will be that good in the water or on anything cause it has no rudder. i think it will be great in the air though and a lot of fun to fly.i think somebody should call spinmaster and tell them to make it a 3 or 4 channel and sell it for $50. that would be awesome!!!!

how does it work without the rudders. i know that the aero ace steers using the 2 motors but when you do it on the ground with landing gear on it never seems to turn very well unless you give it full power and it will do a 180.

p.s. monstermaker13, have you ever actually built landing gear cause on those photos i saw you said that those planes were somebody elses.

i built them the same way but the wheels were buttens.and the reason the areo ace spins out is because of its small size.try makeing a single wheel on the back. it will help.and how it turns on the water is because of the lessening of one motor causes the other to increase causing it to turn!!!!!more force on one side than the other will make it turn!it dont need no freakin rudders.

well it's got 2 motors so it can turn but it's not going to turn very well unless it's in the air.

IT WILL TURN THE EXACT SAME WAY AS THE AA! I BUILD RC AIRBOATS WITH TWIN MOTORS AND I KNOW THIS WILL WORK . MY AIRBOATS DONT HAVE RUDDERS AND THEY TURN![sm=bananahead.gif]oh well, my thread is getting some use out of this.

an elevator is definately a must have for this thing. how else or you going to keep in on the water. just think you're drivin along on the water at half throttle then you go full throttle bring it up out of the water start flyin around above the water and start doing some loops and then you safely bring it back down and land it on the water and just keep on drivin on the water like nothing ever happened.

speed! and airplane wont fly unless its going a sertain speed. the trifuision will be able to be on the water then you in crease the throttle and boom, youre in the air. i have a hydrofoam and thats how it flys.

But over time I think it would probably rip up the bottom....
I will probably put little tires on it. I wont drive it in water much. (for there is no water to drive it on)

it takes off with an elevator or the motors overpower the boat causing it to go up off the water.
