Default My Daughter's Airboat

Started simple for testing then built a pine and cedar hull.
30"x14.5*
.
Went from a 380 brushed 5.5" prop to a 35x42mm 1100kv outrunner and a 10x7 MAS
Planning dual rudders.
Finished hull should weight about 3lbs.
​​​​​​​No plans or prints.just building a hull large enough for my daughter's Barbies.
​​​​

How much air does it take to run it?
Very intrested.

About 6 gallons in the summer on a 3s lipo.
I don't run it in tbe winter cause the air will freeze above 51% throttle even with a propylene glycol injector

Could probly benifet from an anti-air diverter device.Maybe one can be 3d printed.
Has to run off of metric voltage though.

thats pretty neat.
i do have a metric voltage converter i can send you ....just pay shipping.
the distribution valve has a small crack in it,but the converted voltage doesnt leak out.i tested it twice while submerged under water and everything worked.
i also have a compensator and a dense air regulator for the anti-air diverter,but sadly i misplaced the diverter years ago.

the compensator and dense air regulator will cut you back to 2-3 gals of air per mth max.
but if you turn the regulator down and increase the voltage pot on the compensator you can run as low as .2-.5 gal per mth at 75% throttle in temps down to 10f
dense air is thicker and carries more moisture the regulato reduces the dense air to prevent the air from freezing.
pm me your addy

also if your interested in negative air thrust,i have a thermatic detent coupling to replace the standard prop adapter your currently running.
it eliminates isothermic atmosphere disturbences in the blades path as it chops thru the dense winter air,it was featured in model avaition magazine back in the mid 90's and proptoligist approved to cancel out all semi conductive vibration and harmonics in the blades profile.
you will see a 1500-1800 rpm increase in rpms and less load on the motor to increase runtimes.
works best with a humidity intensifier heater element installed 2.5-2.7 inches infront of the prop.

I will have to take you up on that offer but first I'll have to mount my reverse radio signal transducer to counter act the broadband spectrum rays of the ionized turbulence that the
Anti air diverter emits under full load.

Definitely have a few things to consider.
You would not happen to have any leads on a low voltage ionic reverburator with the micro clutch would ya?
The older style with the screw type rotor pins.

Haven't updated but I got arrested and questioned.Apparently my anti air diverter combined with the thermatic detent coupler experiments placed me on a watch list.

No worries I'm released but they confiscated most of my items.Charges dropped.
