    Do it! Dust it off and get out there.

    You have any thoughts on the sponson strut theory?

    Tried again today, I think the sponson gussets are causing the bounce in the stern.

    LOL! A wall climb would be super scary. I am genuinely nervous about running it. Got knots in the gut just thinking about it.

    Exercise self control with the throttle finger. If you only want 50%, only pull the trigger halfway. Keeping the 100% is not a bad thing. Say you are out on the water and a jet ski comes by. You may...

    It depends if your speed control has reverse built into it and programmed for it....but yes, it is possible to have reverse.

    It was bugging me, so I called Octura. The x440 should be 40 millimeters... They checked some stock and found the same thing I did. A 40 millimeter prop mics out at 38. They then compared the X...

    Yup Patrick, it is water cooled. It's the castle hydra ice 200HV. I actually did buy a swordfish lite 300a and the cooling tubes were blocked and it did LITERALLY nothing when I hooked it up. I...

    Prop size. Am I missing something?

    I've been running an x440 Octura and wanted to try something smaller so I ordered an x438. I throw a caliper on them and there is virtually no difference, certainly not two millimeters worth of...

    I have actually tested the high draw theory by placing two 1600mah 6v packs in parallel on a "Y" connector. The big servos don't actually pull their power through the receiver, they use a "y" harness...

    I was having problems with the speed control a while back and the guys at Castle had no idea what the problem was. I think I found the problem today. Probably the reason for the high amp draw and the...

    Oh, OK. Yeah. It had a little bit when I shot the video, but I've since worked on it and got most of it out. Over a length of 14" from stern it probably has 1/32 or maybe 3/64 hook. It used to be...

    Is that what that is? The guy I got it from didn't remember. I'll put a GPS on it next time I run. What is "the hook"?

    32" brushless Ugly mono. What prop?

    I was given this hull about a year ago along with a Graupner drive. I installed the drive and proceeded to blow the motor because I overvolted it by 12 or so volts. LOL

    LOL Andy. Nope. That was back when I was still really weak from my sickness and the water was really high and swift. I didn't want to become a statistic.

    A little something to think of....I have read that less than full throttle can overheat and ESC. I've never experienced the phenomenon, but I always think of it when I run slower than full.
