RC Boat Project: Update 4

Aug 06, 2018

More sanding and resurfacing was done this past week. More 3M Acryl-green putty was used to spot treat any last remaining rough patches. After the hull is as smooth as possible the painting and glossing stage will come next. Along with sanding, a motor mount was designed and will be 3D printed from PLA as seen in figures 1 and 2.

All electrical and mechanical components have been delivered and can be seen in figure 3. Once the motor mount is printed other mounts will be printed for the Li-po battery, ESC, receiver, etc. Once all the mounts are created and secured inside the hull the total assembly will begin.
