Welcome to RCU! There is no way to answer your question without knowing more about your boat. Exactly what boat is it? Have you made any changes to it? You may be able to run at part throttle to...

Even with a water prop the boats will coast a long way without a turn fin, my riggers always did. In early FE days racers would use a car ESC with a brake which helped, but not in a long time since...

That’s a common mistake, running for speed on too small of a pond. Official SAW courses for water prop boats measure through 330-foot traps, plus run up and slow down room. The lake where many...

Another option is to buy a used boat from an experienced gas boater. You can get a much better quality product for a decent price compared to the typical RTR. Of course there are risks, but go...

I'd love to see your model, it sounds interesting. I've built many airboats over the past 50 years but only one EDF. I've held many official FE speed records with water prop boats and know the...

The Super Hawaii was always a bit soft in the gearbox department, even with yesterday’s low voltage round cells. The best recommendation I have is to remove the gearbox entirely and go with a...

I’ve not seen these plans before, although I have seen kit boats modified with a similar “tunnel” down the center to allow positioning the motor lower on the hull. Any idea of the size of the boat?

Airboats spin out because there is nothing to keep them running straight or to prevent sliding in turns - no rudder in the water, no keel, no strakes. Too, excessive air rudder deflection can make...

A lot depends on the weight and bottom shape of the hull, but I'd start with the CG at 30% from the transom, with room to move it for and aft. I use 10-12mm between the prop tip and deck, if the...

Since you have the bigger 3S packs it just makes sense to use them. While you could wire them up in series for 6S, the weight penalty may be too high. 5000 mAh is fine, giving a bit longer run time...

Jet drives also do not give the acceleration needed for a drag race - they are inefficient compared to a propeller. And just 9 cm probably won’t work for a hydro, too narrow. For the short distance...
