Thanks fellers, working on a steam powered airplane on floats now. Not sure it will have enough rpm to move it or not.

Hey Pitchy, I`m sure you may have thought of it but is there any way to gear the prop with maybe a pulley set up to get the RPM`s you need ? Can`t wait to see it buzzing around.

Thanks guys.
Sarge, i agree but the motor doesn`t have enough power to do that.
I may make a new motor and i have a RC prop i`m going to try.
But it does move, here`s what we have so far. :)
