Default Flamingo RC Boat - second test

Did some changes to the boat since the first run. Added fans and heat sinks to motor and ESC. We also turned up the EPA on the throttle to about 50% to get some more speed. I think that this speed is perfect for this type of RC boat.

More things will come on this boat such as watercooling, lights, capatin figure etc......

ENJOY

Wow, love the boat,it's beautiful! So, 50% means you have some power left? Just my opinion, but it looks a bit (to me) like the boat is plowing, not getting on the step if you will. I'd love to see a video with it cranked up some, is that possible? I have one boat that is an old Chris Craft style that's electric, and it runs very similar. I've always felt like it needed some more speed,but have never been bothered enough to go brush-less,or even put in a hotter motor.

Thanks for the comment and glad you enjoyed the video.

Yes, there is 50% more power to be applied if I want to. I can definitely "crank" it up a notch and post a video of this. I will see if I can do this within the next coming days.
