Improving the airboat

About two weeks ago I showed you how you should NOT build an airboat and how I learned why the position of the rudder is really important in boat design. 

How NOT to build an RC airboat

I now fixed my issues by moving the rudder all the way back on the boat and I greatly improved the buoyancy by adding a skirt to the entire underside of the boat. 

The test run went perfect and for a change, I did not get into the mud in order to rescue it. 

Check out the build video below and for more details, you can check the build article over at Instructables.
