    @Neightn: How long did it take you (approximately) to make the entire thing?

  18. gossipgoatsx says:

    how long did it take you

  19. neightn says:

    No motors. The motor goes inside the boat, and the motor shaft goes from the motor, to the outside of the boat and onto the prop

  20. Matthew Whalley says:

    drive shaft: the rod that connects the motor to the propellor
    antenna: (aka) reciever, is the radio control system making it remote controlled

  28. neightn says:

    bearings and a slightly larger shaft on the outside of the drive shaft

  29. neightn says:

    bearings and a slightly larger shaft on the outside of the drive shaft

    bearings and a slightly larger shaft on the outside of the drive shaft

  31. RCTutz says:

    A drive shaft is basically a tube connecting the motor to the propellor.
    The antenna is usually a wire which will come with your transmitter and receiver set.
    The receiver receives everything the transmitter transmitts.
    It makes the servos move on your command.
    If you dont know what these things are, then I am not really sure if you are ready to drive/fly rc models yet.

  33. neightn says:

    the shaft is the drive shaft, the antena & reciever is all the electronics that make it 'remote controlled' and to make/install those, I dont have a tutorial right now
