TSATS: Omniboat

4 posts in this topic



Well, here's my entry. The idea was to build an aquatic version of The Omnidroid with omnidirectional drive.
, but I wanted take advantage of the RC unit's better range. However, that ended up too large and bulky, so I reverted to twin outboard motors, which you can also see
. Anyway, pictures:

Interesting and agile floating creation. It was smart idea to use those "plastic lego bottles".

Nice use of botles! Any picture of actual screws?

You mean the propellors? I used these and outboard motors - like mahjqa's but mounted in the middle of the chassis.
