Default Simple Hull designs please

I'm making a electric boat for a national challenge (schools marine challenge) and i am looking for a simple hull shape: probably a planing hull but not to complex cos this is our first hull.

Try www.rcstore.com for simple hull plans for electric boats. Probably other Schools have already gotten their plans in there. Another site for fast electrics www.rumrunnerhobbies.com .

Does this boat have to do something special? Some of these competitions have the boat do something or it must meet a certain criteria. You have to let us know how you do! Lotza luck.

Thanks,
Its got to be smaller than 440ml long. But it only is allowed to run on the supplyed 4.8v batteries. We only have very basic electrics. 2 channel RC, motor, battery, switch and a tiny little prop [:'(]

We have also made a small solar powered trimarange. But that is a displacement hull.

I guess my question would be,

Is the competition about Speed, Power, or Maneuverablity?
Each catagory would be set up differently.

Seems to me you'll need something like a Eco-type hull, extremely light built.

How long is 440ml?
What type of motor do you have (to use)?

Sounds like quite a challenge....

Regards, Jan.

Try www.microhydros.com or www.danvo.com for small boats. If a pre-built boat is allowed, try something like a Zig-Zag racer. 12-15 MPH and runs on 4 cells and maneuverable.

I'll mail you a stepped monohull plan tonight, easy adaptable in size.
Half the original in this case.

Should be fast and maneuverable.

Regards, Jan.

Plans are in the mail Young Master Took (19.20 h)

That's too bad.

I've sent you the plans anyway, just build one (or more) and get a headstart for next year!
