I want to make a R/C sailboat, so far I have 4x32x1/4 inch balsa wood planks and they should last me the entire project. This weekend I'm going to visit a hobby store and get: waterproof wood glue, waterproofer for the wood. Then go to target and get a rotary tool.
The boat will be 3 inches tall with a 1 inch keel (keeps the boat from tipping) 5 inches wide and 15 inches tall.
I will get a cheap multi directional R/C car and use the steering mechanism to move the rudder and the drive motor to turn the sail.
Once I make the boat I'll fill the gaps with wood paste and water proof everything hopefuly with a silicon based sealant.
Any tips or flaws with my plans, please see the attached sketch.
