    Greetings guys, just a quick question.
    I have recently changed the setup on my V hull to a surface drive. the previous setuo had the rudder behind the prop (not directly behind, but farther back...

    RE: 47inch deep v?

    6S is much more favorable then 4S, but he would be even better off with maybe a third pack but 2s perhaps.
    On the bigger hulls your options become quite limited awfully quick.
    Since he doesn't want...

    Definitely an internal combustion engine, the motor mount with the rubber absorbs the vibrations.
    Talk to the nitro guys they would be able to help.
    Or you could switch it to electric. you just...
  4. RE: Need Some help Regarding Cat build and the parts I received!!!

    I'm not exactly sure what glue to use, I would probably say some wood glue since the frame is wood.
    I've seen people skin their hulls with both balsa and plywood, the plywood is more durable so it...
  5. RE: Looking for the right prop .... here's what I have

    I don't really know how to suggest a "better prop," is the current one causing handling problems or do you just want to go faster?
    You can get larger diameter props to up your speed a little, or...

  7. RE: Electric 1/4 Scale Racing Crackerbox plans???

    The 4082 sounds good, what is the rated power on those?
    at 1250kv, you would probably want to start on 5s and then move up to 6s.
    so when you say you want 2 3s batts in parallel I think you mean...
  8. RE: Large Scale Electric Boat RTR or ARTR?

    I forget but I think the Miss Geico is 34 inches, I don't think this would be a big problem, the boat is plenty quick and fun.
    The only problem is that the batteries are not included, so if you...
  9. RE: Electric 1/4 Scale Racing Crackerbox plans???

    A good motor for that size hull can be a variety of sizes.
    My 39" mono used to run a neu 1515 motor and to be honest, that motor looked way too small for the boat yet it pushed it with ease.
    Now I...

    Man, that running photo looks great. It makes me want to have a crack at building one.
    The rudder on that boat is truly amazing with the integrated foil. Very clever design.
    It just looks so...

    WOW. I never knew there were any rc hydrofoils except for custom jobs. This custom? It looks gorgeous.
    Have you ran this boat before, I am interested in knowing how well it performs.

    I can tell you how many amps my boat will pull when it is setup incorrectly,

    Okay, this might just be me but it looks like the motor specs you gave are, well pretty weak.

    RE: How manny amps...

    Hey,
    With a dual motor setup I imagine that the amps on each motor should be fairly low, maybe 70-80 amps.
    with your 2:1 gear reduction you would want to get double the target output rpm. so...

    RE: Mono Deep Vee 1 meter/39' \m/

    I'm not sure what kind of distance you want between the rudder blades. I've never had a dua rudder setup. I do think that you might want to get a slightly larger distance between your rudders. Just...

    RE: will this work?

    48 " hull?
    those 4800kv are no good, the amps that sucker would pull would cause thermal meltdown.
    for a boat that large you are looking at a kv rating <1700kv using 5-6 cell lipos or more.
