3D model description

RC hydroplane. Basic model is scaled by 2.5.

size: 56 x 30 cm
weight of hull: ~760g (in my not-optimal case)

The model is working but it's still under slight development. My model is too heavy (too many perimeters) so if you make it better you will probably avoid some of my problems.
But relax - it's confirmed experimentally that even my too heavy version cannot sink completely :-)

Main problem is that water gets quite easily to the battery space. I'm trying to solve it with rubber part but I've not finished it yet.

Planned upgrades:

  • add some scad files for easy modifications
  • solve the leaks
