Quite frankly my 12 year old daughter has done better alu welding at school! Its the worst example i`ve ever seen. And those tubes hold the engine and wing? No thanks!

Thats not welding, more like chewing gum painted over and the rudder what a work of art

It would work, but I don't trust his design

I agree with everyone on this site.. Poor welds, That rudder WTF A proper rudder on an airboat is not in the water, and you certantly don't want to land anything in water with a rudder down.. That being said, I have seen kits of these in smaller versions and would buy one if they weren't so expensive.. I could probably make one as well, but would rather not as I like to stay on the ground as much as possible these days..
