janssnet posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHi folks, Most LEGO boats have out-board motors. Not very elegant, not very fast. I felt a strong urge to find out if in-board was possible. And, if the LEGO hulls could handle some speed. Although it did require a 3D-printed part (a so called stuffing tube), it worked out well. Built in some 2.4GHz RC components to make sure the boat could be controlled from a distance. And included a modest brushed elektromotor. Please have a look at the result hereunder. Leave a comment if you wish to see more details. Happy to share. Currently working on a optimized version: The prop behind the boat, not under the boat. Less resistance, more speed, more control.
