Absolutely brilliant!

Have you thought about fully submersing the motor and cutting the prop down?

Thank you ! yeah i too noticed that it's pitching down , it's pitching down only while on greater throttle , may be i can solve it by changing the angle of motor ( not sure though ) thanks for the suggestion and sure i will try to figure it out with CG

Thank you Smile will give a try on that too , then it will not be a air boat any more , hope i can get few boat propellers by the end of December
