RC Rowing Boat Part #4


I have been planning to make an RC rowing boat for over a year now and the servos I modified to drive a toy tank looked ideal for the task and the kiddies toy boat from Poundland looked the right size so I started the project. Here we give it a try on the boating lake, it struggles against the light breeze and the mild current so maybe we need bigger oars or a nice quiet private swimming pool.
I cannot answer comments from people who have blocked replies, so if you don't get a reply to your question that may be the reason. It is probably worth reading my video description first because the answer may already be there.

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
