    BRUSHLESS Aquacraft Air Force VIDEO updated

    Guys I have been away for a while (to much work) but now I have a little free time and I started a new project. Since I have a all white Aquacraft Air Force hull free, I'm putting a big nice brushless setup on it. Right now I have NO IDEA on how the propeller will react with the motor but here are some specs:

    BRUSHLESS MOTOR with water jacket
    Turborix 1110w 3200rpm/v Inner Runner Brushless Motor
    Specification: kv : 3200rpm/v
    Weight : 215g
    Length : 50mm
    Diameter : 35.8mm
    Shaft Diameter: 5mm
    Idle Current : 2.39A
    Resistance : 0.0115
    Max Current : 60A
    Battery : 4-5LIPO

    BRUSHLESS ESC
    Standard SV27 ESC watercooled

    PROPELLER
    Master Airscrew 11x7

    HULL
    Aquacraft Air Force

    I won't be using air rudders for now, I want to see how the water rudder works first, I have never tried this boat in the past. it will running on 14.8v (lipo or nihm) i don't know yet but I have both for the test. now my question is looking at the specs of the motor and the battery power I will be using, is the propeller to small for it? Here are some pictures of how it may look like. I need to make sure the motor mount will hold the setup.

    This is going to be interesting!

    This will be the first electric Aquacraft that I have seen, definitely can't wait to see some video.
    Keep us updated.

    Yes keep us updated I also have a airforce shell sitting around and a brushless setup would be good idea.

    RE: BRUSHLESS Aquacraft Air Force

    I just bought the servo cable extension that I need it, so I will be finishing this project today or tomorrow and hopefully some videos during the weekend, I will also add to the setup a WIRELESS DEPTH / FISH FINDER to it.
    The transponder have been modified to transmit longer distance and receiver has a external antenna for better receiving. The sonar sensor will be installed inside the hull just like on real boats. The whole thing is lighter than a bluetooth earpiece.

    This is the depth / fishfinder I will be using, but mine is modified and the electric components from the green transponder are out of that shell

    RE: BRUSHLESS Aquacraft Air Force

    Test #1 using only (2) 7.2volt battery packs in series 12cells producing 14.4volts in total but battery were fully charged 2-3 months ago for the test they were NOT fully charged. Second test will consist on fresh charged batteries. The total voltage for this setup with 14cells will be 16.8 Volts with 3800mAh.

    I think CRD means that you might have a problem because the prop is further back than the transom. It looks like it is hanging off the back of the boat instead of being "inside".

    Ahh ok, that could be easy fix if need it, instead of push I can go pull system, that's the beuty of brushless, switch the wires and that's it.

    I think that if you use a 5 cell lipo on your boat you will blow the paint off the wall as wellas the movie. Thoes liops have heaps of power . Can't wait to see her in the water.
    Boating is not a matter of life or deth, It is more important than that !!

    ?! Why do you need watercooling on that unit. Now seeing that the air is being pulled thru the motor by the prop at a great rate. I can see it in boat, thanks!

    Forgot, and yes i have electric airboats. The motor should angle to the right 1 degree and down 2 degrees with cg at 30% so you can keep the bow down and stability! Now this comes from Harold of Cajun airboats on his site!
