I thought of building another RC boat, but this time it will be simple and super cheap, the original design is from Mr. Roopesh from the forum.I brought a cheap toy car, and used the most of it for electronic and hardware, (actually I already Build, n this is the build log)

I made the servo rotate continuously on either sides, and fitted 2 pulleys 1 big to rudder, and 1 small to servo, to reduce the seed of the rudder.

Nice build Chris. BTW I am trying to convince Krishna (formerly Roopesh) to return to the forum. We all could benefit and learn from her marvellous wisdom and knowledge. I have given my personal assurance there will be no persecution

I just made the servo work like a simple motor by disconnecting its chip and potentiometer.

yes, with this cheap 2ch transmitter it can only drive motor not servo, so I have to make the servo work like a geared motor. with pulley system

It is sad that we lost one very talented modeller. Sadly the forum does not have strict rules on what should NOT be written on the forum. Going through the last posts of this talented modeller makes one feel really sad.

Lets hope Krishna takes this as an apology from the Forum at large and returns
