I do a lot of sailing in the British Virgin Islands and just ginned this up.

Always wanted to get some cool video from the water on a RC boat, wanted one small enough to fit in a backpack, well I picked one up with damaged box at half price.

It looked like THIS outa the box:
http://www.aquacraftmodels.com/boats/aqub14-main.html

Original plan was to mount the camera inside or on top of the canopy....initial testing proved that to be a bad idea, the wieght of the video camera made it very tippy.
Loose the canopy, turn it into a RIB using polyethelene pipe insulator foam!!
Initial shot, not totally done, have to silicone the motor water cooling tube and trim it:




More pics here:

Next step is to make the glassed foam "keel" that will suspend the camera under the RIB for underwater video!

Check the anchor set, no problem, just send the Stealth Video Rib out!!!

Pete

If you get round to making a hull, give me a shout, as my other half has access to a vacum forming machine and could knock you out a few.
Got me thinking now, as I have a complete set of R/C gear sat in garage ......

The camera mount is complete, adjustable for tilt and pan manually.

Just ran the sea trial in the big Olympic size pool, handles beautifully and can go pretty quick!!
The RIB appears to be very stable and balances perfectly with the video camera aboard.

I have bailed on mounting the camera on the bottom of RIB and am starting on a towable sled rig for the camera with dive planes that will take it down as the RIB is moving forward, the depth can be adjusted by length of the tow line as well as speed of the RIB as I will make the the sled have slight positive bouancy until towed.

Amazing what a Sunday afternoon of a few beers makes one dream up!!

Good find. Interesting that they seem to have done a model of the RNLI's Experimental FCB2 (JET DRIVE RESCUE BOAT 16th scale), although it could just be a similar looking commercial boat. If it is FCB2, they must be well gutted that the production boat is going to look quite different.
