Re: found this on a local dealer ...

with a belt reduction of around 1.69 which you can get from arrow props .. and a 3 blade warpdrive that they recommend it is viable you can find plenty of info in the mini boat section with a quick search

Re: dogleg steering

if it works .. but is touchy .. you need to change the pivot point so the throw is longer .. you can scale a model size design out of popsicle sticks to get it to your liking ..

Re: 2 airboats crash near Lake Washington

Look ... we all know you can't trust no lasers ... cell phone stopwatches are way more gooder .. especially when you are only at one end of the track or the other .. kinda hard to be at both ends unless you on the boat don't ya know ..

hey guys there was no BS in my original post ... go back and read it ... ......... Razors and sabers are hollow .. warps are solid .. so warps might survive a light strike better .. maybe Razors and saber take more power per blade so you probably won't run 5 of them as for which is better .. my vote...

Re: How to check a wood props pitch

70 percent efficiency would be great on an airboat .. probably more like 40 to 50 .. tops .. efficiency is expressed as how far the prop moves forward with each revolution .. in the real world .. lots of things to affect it on an airboat configuration .. cage .. seats .. uncowled engine .. transom ....
