What's up guys?

I have the new Cajun Commander airboat, and it is brushless electric powered. So I modified the RealFlight airboat to be brushless electric. But there is only a couple of things I can change.

I don't know how, or maybe it is not possible. But I cannot get the motor to come to a complete stop with the throttle stick and trim all the way down. I think this is because the default is glow engine powered. So, is there a way that anyone knows of to do this?

Thanks!

Well, if all else fails, hit the "K" key. But you probably knew that already..

I can't speak for your Cajun Commander but I have had every airboat that Dumas puts out, some more than once and even an obscure Robinair Skimmer and a few scratch built models. None of them perform like the one in the sim. In real life, at low speed they don't turn well and the sim doesn't replicate the drift when you take a corner at speed. I think it has a lot to do with the water in the sim is not quite like the real world and is not slippery enough. The sim after all is a plane simulator not a boat sim. It's a shame because driving a flat bottom airboat at high speed over super shallow water with the nose pointed one way and the boat going the way it was before the turn is quite fun.

I agree. I have another airboat as well.

Looking at editing the RF airboat, man that thing is HEAVY!

I lightened it by probably 90%. Hull, ballast, airframe (cage), etc. It sits higher on the water and is more realistic than before but like you said, the RF water creates unusual drag. And then there is the tendency for the airboat to do those weird RF bounces and dances that sometimes happen. But still, it's a fun edit and I am having a good time with it.

If there is any interest, I can export it.

Sure you can export it.

How is the Power of that Airboat? will it run in damp grass? I was looking at that for a toy to play around with. I may build another Dumas Windy Airboat for a something to do project. I have built 3 of them in my younger days so I am pretty familiar with the kit and they are pretty cheap. I'll have to do an Electric conversion on it though as I don't have my .25 anymore that I ran with the last 3 I had .

I just love the way airboats handle and I wish the sim would get the water right so they would work properly. Super shallow water like a inch deep should allow for awesome sideways sliding in turns.

The Cajun Commander runs well on wet grass. That is where I first tested mine. I was not ready for how fast it really is though, when I ran it on water later.
