Been a month or two since I last ran my boat, and that was because the battery cable kept falling off... (solder just didn't want to stick in the end)
The thickness of the ESC battery cable on the Turnigy Aquastar 120 amp is intense... Very well made, but possibly a touch too thick?
Anyways, thicker cable means better transfer of Amps, so I shouldn't complain... I used to have a T-Connector on all my batteries as well as all my models... This is now changed on all of the above to a nice XT60 connector, they seem WAAAAAAYYYYY better than the old T-Connector, hopefully looks aren'tdeceiving
Can I just say, I bought one of those Mr JIG, that Hobby King sells (others as well I presume)... What a fantastic piece of aluminium, sooo handy, even made my soldering turn out good!!!
Below is a pic of what it looks like, at ~$8 you can't go wrong I reckon
By the way, since the boat has been sitting for a little while, it feels as if it has seized up a bit... Is this normal for electrical motors in boats?
I mean they do tend to get a bit wet/submerged slightly in water... and if that water is salt water, it might explain it?
Are there anything that I should do after a run?
I clean the boat inside and out with fresh water, as well as run fresh water through the entire cooling system, what do you guys do?
