Hello people :laugh:

Here is the final entry topic for the Eurobricks Contest "To Sail the Technic sea".
It is a red Lego Technic  speedboat, which can swim. :sweet:
The two bodies of the Lego City 7244 speedboat were the base  and I build a Lego Technic connection between them.
Here it is:

The functions
1 M Motor for rotating the propellor
1 M Motor for steering
It is RC controlled via 1 IR reciever

Here are some pictures to see the inside of the boat:

But she isn't speed :( Do you tried to improve drive? Gears and lift reduce the efficiency of propeller unfortunetly
Gentlemen, start your engines!

The speed is impaired by your choice of this tiny, inefficient propeller. You should try this: http://www.bricklink...Item.asp?P=2952
With great power comes great electricity bill.
