Hi Anajan,
If you add a elevator their (don't know whether it is correct norm for air boats) will it effect the characteristic of sailing. I mean a better balance can be achieved without much changing the angle of motor mount.

Tested the boat at the lake today, a pond actually, too much wind and waves to try it in the lake.
Hadn't expected my first boat to be so awesome  Giggle
One of the gate police at the lake broke a rudder while trying to move it Violent but managed to slightly fix it up and it was ready for it's maiden  Grin
Few small damages , but fixable.
hope the video is good enough. any suggestions to make the boat sail better are welcomed.

Great  Clap Clap

Need a bigger lake
This is a small pond at the lake, it was too windy and too much waves to test in the lake, so tried it in the pond.

Awesome speed Grin
i guess, i didnt go beyond 1/3 throttle as it was a small pond. just waiting for the winds to calm down Grin

Instead of shifting the CG forward, angle up the motor a bit by putting washers on the bottom mounting-screws. I use the little black rings that come with the propellers (shaft adapters).

I tried that, but the motor angle required to keep the boat from flipping out is getting it to nose dives into water at slow speeds. At 1/3 throttle it's all fine, but at 1/2 throttle or less, nose will be at water level.
also, no washers required, made an adjustable angle mount Grin

Don't muck around with the motor angle now - you will destroy the build. Go to a wheel balancing shop and pick up loose lead weights (they give them away for free). Put some weights on the fore part of the model and ENJOY! This baby has  some great speed. I only wish that you had made her with a scale cockpit and had painted/detailed her to resemble the actual thing.

This looks like a schematic scientific test model rather than a RC Scale boat model.

Sorry if I am being blunt - but then that is just me...............I've always been partial to scale and detailing

Very well done  Clap Clap Clap Clap Clap

VC, i'm planning to build a proper 1/10th scale hydroplane, will take care of the detailing in that, this is only my first boat Grin

I will try moving the battery towards the nose and if it still doesn;t handle right, i'm gonna go with your lead weight suggestion. just that i dont want dead weights onboard.

Got rid of the less-effective air rudders and added a water rudder. Handles beautifully, very agile. Cheesy

Might as well make a regular boat then. An air boat should be able to skim over solid smooth surfaces too
