Definitely, it's gotta go much faster. I think this is just low power testing.

they would have saved a lot of time and money if they would have just consulted us in America first then they would not have to
be doing all that testing, we have had it figured out for years :lol: next thing will be somebody will have to teach them how to drive one with out getting hurt or killed and they definitely need to to come to the US and pick up a LS engine and a gear box and a good prop so it will have some power, those little 4 cylinders they have over there aint going to work

Pretty much my thoughts as well. It would be cool if it could perform as it should, but it really looks like a plastic bathtub toy that would have an electric motor running off 2 AAA batteries.
Given a real power plant as you mention, they would sink it before making one small loop back to the ramp if it was driven like that.
I won't fault anybody for trying, but when you know nothing about a subject, the prudent thing to do is ask questions on the front side.
You could not be more correct in that regard.

Good, and congratulations, the boat was design and made by which company?
what's the engine's power?

Here is another airboat in Korean.
Before korean purshase a airboat hull from abelly, China Shandong Yantai, but the company is not existing, they are a workshop, the abelly production hull to USA, but they don't have right to product airboat to other buyer because they dong't have copyright. And Abelly selled airboat hull to korean. See my post, I searched the abelly company, and made phone call to the guy, he don't have office and fake ISO9001 certficate, everything is fake, the abelly company is not existing.
