Default Gasser on the water

This is one wild vid. As you can see I had a blast making this one. The true meaning of the swamp buggy.

While at the RC AirBoat World, have a look around at the other vids and pics.

To help see where I'm running, from the top of the levee to the water is about 4 feet and the logs are 8" to 10" in diameter.
The hull handle the endurance well, did not have any damage to it anywhere

After taking the time to down load the vid. I found out that it was only part of the vid. Here is the rest of the 51 seconds. The vid does get a little more interesting.

Looks great Hal.....[8D]

Could you take a few pics of how you have the throttle linkage set up?

I don't remember what engine you're using, but it looks alot like my Q42, so however you have the throtle link hooked up should help me out with mine.

Also.maybe a few pics of the rudder system you have aet up also?



PLEASE.........
