Gas Powered RC Boat

The frame of this boat came from a slow moving electric boat that I decided to completely modify. The boat I created is powered by a small lithium ion battery and a 25cc gasoline weed eater engine. The engine is controlled by a 25 gram servo pulling a cable. The engine is shut off with a relay and the boat is steered by a second 25 gram servo. There are also 3 water cooling systems and a fan to cool off the exhaust and engine. I use a 6 channel 2.4 ghz remote to control it.

The highest speed is now 25 mph instead of 7 or 8. This took 3 days to build with only a few hours each day.
