RE: The Offical Shockwave 26 thread!
I have now run the Shockwave on the Chameleon 2 Pro 19 turn motor with a smaller prop. I had also added brush cooling to the motor and it seemed to run cooler and the ESC was not super hot. However, even though there are suppression capacitors on the motor, I get a lot of glitching at top throttle -- both throttle and rudder, so the motor never completely comes up to speed because it cuts out, speeds up, cuts out, etc. That may also be part off the esc heating as well. I am being told the glitching is because the Pro-Boat radio is AM. Has anyone else had a problem with glitching at high speed? The suppression capacitors on the motor are the ones that came with the stock motor. Any recommendations for using different ones? Should I try a surface frequency FM radio to see if there is a difference? I don't want to spend more $$$ on upgrades if the boat isn't going to run well enough to enjoy it.
