For many years now I've thought about doing an RC Canada goose. I have a spare radio or two, I just need a goose decoy, a motor, prop, rudder, linkages, ESC, and some batteries.

A Nessie would be cooler. Maybe easier; I envision a 5ft 1x6 plank with papier mache humps hiding a plastic electronics box.

There's a video of the RC alligator that frequents my pond.

The same builder has also been working on a Plesiosaur, but I don't have video anywhere I can find.

Today was a good day at the pond. Had 2 fairly successful runs with the steam boat. The rudder is acting up, but I am pretty sure I know how to fix that. The whistle valve is sticking again, so it's probably got a bit of grit stuck somewhere.

A few weeks back I took this video of the other Harrison pond monster but forgot to share it.

Link to a Page on Bell of Lost Souls - someone has made a 40k Ork R/C Boat. Thought you might like to see as well! (I really don;t like Orks...but now I want to make one of these!)

BOLS was as disappointing, blinky, flashy and gimcrack infested as ever.  Sad  Extremely high signal/noise ratio.

Meant to reply to that post about the Ork ship, but my phone was on the fritz and I forgot to check again once on a computer.

It is based off a existing kit, the hull is from a boat named Our Lass 2.

As with most thinks Orkish, I don't like the aesthetic. It's well done though. Must have a huge motor in it, it's quite a large hull.
