What cutting edge technology exists in our boats today. Does anyone have it all? What is the next, achievable step? So here goes: Hull - Fiberglass but could be carbon fiber in the future Decks - Wood or fiberglass or carbon fiber in the future Rudders - Airfoil, flared Drive motors - brushless Drive gears - gear reduction, perhaps a sealed 2 speed transmission in teh future? Pump Motor - brushless Pump housing - waiting for innovation! Pump Impellor - waiting for innovation! Pump controller - esc, firing board / relay, what could do a better job? Throttle - ESC, where do we go from here? Firing Circuits - Firing boards, dual-firing boards, I think we maxed out here. Batteries - LifePO4, prismatic plastic case - what does the future hold for this? Regulator - lite aluminum Co2 tanks - steel / brass fitting - do they have aluminum tanks for our sizes? Gun actuation - Solenoids, I think we maxed out here as well. Cannons - do we have anything new? Radio -2.4Ghz, Do we need them, a ship controller could be used or some other variant based on the xbee 2.4ghz chip. Did I miss anything current? I think that covers most of the systems in the ship with the most current techologies I have heard being used. Is anyone testing something that will really open up a category? Lets hear about it.
