These RC model boats are based on an easy-to-build 15-inch long hard chine hull mostly constructed from balsa.
Being a planing hull the speed is high enough not to be boring, but not so fast it would easily get out of control. Generally, the balsa sheet should be relatively light-weight and soft, but most importantly, straight grain and even density.
Tools are often a matter of personal choice as there is often more ways than one to skin a cat. These projects are perfect for beginners and those looking for a cheap, easy, simple and fast build. These boats would make great introductions to both scratch building and RC boating.You may wonder why I keep referring to this project in plural. For propeller I've come to use one plundered from a toy (I'll get into more detail later in the build log).For propeller shaft, stuffing tube, rudder etc.


There is no reason a more commercial RC battery pack couldn't be used.The propeller is "on loan" from a Tamiya Submarine Motor (#70153).

If you are not comfortable using the tools listed further down on this page, at the very least, ask someone for help. After a few boat projects you'll be a balsa expert.For the balsa strips I'd go for a harder quality than the sheets (if available). It's not hard to do if you've got some basic tools and the means and skill to solder with a basic solder iron.


These strips will be used as structural stringers and for deck coaming, so there are no bends or anything to consider. These strips could be substituted for basswood or spruce if available in a pinch.I've had mixed luck with basswood strips.
I order most of my wood online and thin basswood strips often has the grain run out the side of the strip causing it to split when bending.
