About this creation
Hello all! Yes you are right - it's the Icebreaker. And it has remote control. And it's working :)

It was my first icebreaking experience so the model isn't too effective. But now I know that it's real and I know how the model can be improved. Propulsion - 2xXL, rudder - 1x9V motor, dimensions: 75x15x33 cm, total weight with batteries and stabilizer 2480 g. I used RC-unit for comfortable out-door control.

I hope you like it! It was really funny!

By the way.... love the fact that others are trying to push the boundaries of Lego. There is so much building for aesthetic purposes, I like that we can branch out and build for functional and experimental purposes as well.

Impressive performance - even more so if those are Lego's own notoriously inefficient blades! Looks like fun too.

This looks way too cool and very realistic! Maybe the presentation makes it look even more real. Keep it up. A+

Quoting Gabor Horvath Wow! It looks very cool! I like, how you made the hull longer. What kind of weight dou you use under the hull, to make it more stable?
Thanks! I use four 6x2x2 weight-bricks; total weight is about 200 g.

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Great design, DK! Plenty of thrust for ice-breaking and good maneuverability despite the stern extension. Did you think to shroud the props to keep ice away before or after initial testing? Interesting roll stability solution. So glad that someone else is joining in the powerboat fun -- especially someone with your talent!
Thanks a lot! The props are placed rather deep so there is no need to shroud them. I have two thoughts after this test (or maybe it's one thought): I need to increase the weight of the model and I need to increase the speed --> there is a lack of power and I need to increase it. I'm thinking about two hulls connected stern-by-stern with at least four XL or Buggy motors. I'm not sure that I'll done it - time will tell :)
