German racing airboat & plan A5a56d10


For anyone interested, I have some plans for a very unique designed German racing airboat, donated by a friend of mine over the www.

It’s a projects I’m sure some of you would like to have a go at!

If anyone would like a copy of the pdf file, to which you can print out etc, just send me a message with your email attached. ( I’m not letting this be a public download as this is exclusively for members of the forum, and “guests” well they don’t get freebies!)

Be warned the instructions are in German, and I’m not translating them, however I’m pretty sure most can figure out the plan.

On a side note the plan suggests using an engine however we all know converting to a brushless motor will be simple enough.

Hi Aron,

I would like to take a look at these plans please.

When I was still at school I made an "own design" airboat (mainly balsa wood construction) to fit my Cox BabyBee 049 glow engine and I ran it for several years. I was very proud of the bright yellow Humbrol paint scheme and loved the smell of the burning Nitrex 15 and the sound of the screaming Cox engine - ideal ingredients for a 10 year old lad!

Actually when I said that I run "it", there was more than one (!)  as it was "free running" (no radio control in those days) and the odd "collision" was not exactly unknown, so there was a need to repair and sometimes rebuild when the damage was too severe to patch-up.

Trying to get my air boat to run straight was always a challenge  -  as was running around to the other side of the pond to try to catch it before it crashed into the side!

Finding someone to help by standing on the other side to catch it was not too easy,  as most "friends" showed a distinct sense of self preservation - and one even run away!

I am sure having an unprotected driving propeller buzzing about on the local park's boating come paddling pool would definitely not be considered as being "acceptable" these days - but it was great fun for me at the time - and nobody got hurt !

Happy Days!

Bob.

Bob.

I was kindly sent the info to build a Jet Boat.

Although this is very interesting, I don't think I will be building one of these, but I would still like to have a  copy of the Air Boat pans if I can please as that is something that I would be more interested in building.

Thanks for your help,

Bob.
