    working on my deck beams
    Its so rigid youll sink the boat before the deck gives up
    Its rigid but its super lightweight since its a think fiberglass

    Final assembly of the beams
    The deck will sit on top of this

    Next will be the electronics
    I need to make it an easy access
    So ill make something like a drawer where you can easily slide in and out

    Hahahahhah slide in and out got it hahah

    Battery is 12v 12ah gel cell sealed lead acid battery
    GetScaledImage_zps8c05a037.png


    to get on idea how big this boat is

    The weight of that battery alone is 8pounds
    And I think I still need weight to ballast this boat to the water level hahah

  • hardrivehardrive PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    I recently put in a down payment for this yacht
    11/8/14
    250.00 dollars
    The rest will be paid in full when it is done

    My estimate for this project is about hmmm maybe around 1,500.00
    dollars when its complete and running
  • hardrivehardrive PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Next year ko pa ata makuha ang yacht
    Maliit lang kasi na company gagawa non tapos
    Meron pa siyang full time job
    I guess nothing to do but wait

    In the meantime Im thinking of building another scale truck something like this





    images-18_zpseb552e36.jpg

    I figured I can use this to pull the trailer for the yacht hahahah

    Why don't you design a robot patrol boat, like the ones they have in Singapore?
  • hardrivehardrive PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐

    Scale is more fun to me


    And on to rc's
    I was gonna order this one here axid9035-1_zps4e1cc3c0.jpg

    As you can see im not in to airplane or helicopter
    I figured if ill crash it there goes my money
    Well that will change pretty soon
    I found this thing
    dji-phantom-2_medium_zpse7bee626.jpg

    hahahh thus thing is amazing
    It has a gps on it
    If you lost frequency with your transmitter or remote
    Itll come back and land where ever he came from same spot
    On top of that I can use my go pro and install in underneath this thing
    Or scare the people in ilocos norte and install led lights and fly it at night hahahahha
  • Thanks @hardrive for the lovely pictures.

    Why not install a video camera on your RC's where you can watch it on your laptop live and control the RC from there. First person view.
  • hardrivehardrive PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    I would like to do that but im no techie by all means
    I would do that to all of my rcs if I knew how to do that
    Do they have something like that I can buy
