The “Phantom 750” airboat differs from the “Phantom 650” model with the size of the front cargo platform that is about 16 inches longer. Due to this, it has the possibility of the larger carrying capacity – up to 2 tons. Test have shown, an ATV weighing 380 kg (837 pds) fits on the cargo platform quite freely and is transported by water with a good gliding speed of 70 km/h. With a loaded Airboat they confidently and boldly pass from the water to the ice, overcome rapids. mountain rivers, and pass through shallow water. They are easy to manage, they are maneuverable and reliable.
It was created for haulers, god miners, entrepreneurs, whose activities relate to the transportation of cargo by water.
The cockpit will accommodate 5 people with the first row featuring soft bucket seats for the driver and passenger and second row with soft solid seat for 3 people. Removable running awning with panoramic windows reliably protects you from any bad weather. Additional side lockers can be added for additional seating( a passenger capacity is not 5, but 7 people then) and can be turned into sleeping quarter for 2-3 people.
Two different canopies were created: one for protecting the cargo located on the front open platform from getting wet while driving and the second – a parking ten, covering the entire bow of the boat and creating a so-called picnic zone. We can also offer installation on a cargo platform, near a windproof console, a locker equipped with a sink with water and a gas stove.
The Phantom 750 airboat is equipped with all necessary and yet its capabilities can be significantly expanded with the help of various additional options: good navigation equipment, electric winch, optics that can illuminate far ahead of itself, an auxiliary interior heater working with the engine off, an electric pump for pumping tanks, built-in cab, etc.
The design of the boat is a combination of an all-welded aluminum hull, and an inflatable body located under it, which in turn is a kind of shock absorber for softening impacts when moving on obstacles protruding from the water or ice mounds. It is the inflatable body that takes over all the destructive bottom impact loads, absorbs the impact and, after passing through the obstacle, restores its original shape.
The inflatable boat hull is made of high-strength synthetic fabric with a double-sided polymer coating of PVC with the addition of thermoplastic polyurethane. Applied fabric is environmentally safe, wear-resistant, has high climatic and strength characteristics.
The bottom of the boat is protected by polymer scales, which adequately withstand both temperature changes and mechanical impacts. Scales are polymeric plates, in general forming a multi-stage protection of inflatable cylinders. When moving along boulders protruding from the water or ice, each plate is elastically deformed and bends, damping and evenly distributing the load throughout the bottom of the boat. Each scales, in addition to the protective function, performs the role of a transverse version and ensures high speed performance for the aerodrome.
A bulwark with a loose bar along the entire perimeter is a side protection of the boat. The water on board flows into the scuppers – special barred holes in the aluminum casing. Cylinder pumping valves are located in easily accessible places throughout the boat’s hull.
In the rear part of the aircraft there is a propeller-driven unit, which is a single assembly unit consisting of an aluminum all-welded fence for the screw and a longitudinal-transverse motor tar, on which an engine is fixed using shock-absorbing silent blocks. The engine is equipped with a reduction gearbox, on the flange of which the air screw is fixed. Two vertical keel (steering) controls are located behind the screw. Batteries are installed in front of the fence in special plastic boxes.
Engine and gearbox
You can install one of two engine models on the Phantom 750 aerodrome:
Toyota 1UZ-FE – 265 hp / 290 hp or Toyota 3UZ-FE – 300 hp.
The Toyota 1 UZ – FE engine : a 32-valve V-shaped 8-cylinder with a volume of 4000 cm³, with an aluminum block of cylinders with an angle of 90 раз, with pressed cast iron sleeves, two aluminum SSs, two camshafts for each and 4 valves per cylinder . Cooling system – liquid, forced. The timing gear and pumps are a toothed belt.
Engine Toyota 1 UZ – FE – two types:
1 UZ – FE – simple, unpretentious engine with a gas distribution system DOHC, with an upper arrangement of two shafts and a non-contacting ignition system, with 2 coils and 2 tramblers, a power of 265 hp.
1 UZ – FE VVT – i – updated version of the engine with a gas distribution system DOHC, with an upper two shaft arrangement and a VVT-i system, a two-stage ACIS intake manifold and an electronic ignition system, with separate coils per cylinder, rated at 290 hp.
The engine Toyota 3 UZ – FE , in fact, continued development of the engine Toyota 1UZ-FE. The 32-valve V-shaped 8-cylinder, with an enlarged up to 4 300 cm³ capacity, also with an aluminum block of cylinders with an angle of 90 раз, with pressed cast-iron sleeves, two modified aluminum SS, two camshafts for each and 4 valves per cylinder . Cooling system – liquid, forced. The timing gear and pumps are a toothed belt. VVT-i gas distribution system, two-stage intake manifold with adjustable length ACIS, electronic throttle and electronic ignition system, with separate coils per cylinder; capacity of 300 hp
Drive from the engine to the propeller is carried out through the lowering, single-stage, cylindrical, helical gear reducer. The gear housing is made of high-strength aluminum alloys. The gears undergo chemical-thermal treatment and rolling, have high wear resistance and strength. The connection to the motor shaft is via an elastic coupling that is integral with the flywheel.
