That's fine. You may notice that these motors can turn even larger props. 450 x 3 is a good start, watch run times & temps. You may be able to turn a X455 2 blade or more depending on the hull size...

My guess is that you have more rpm with the new motor and stock prop and therefore it rolls over from the torque.

Try a smaller prop or use less voltage (less cells).

Are you using 2S or 3S?...

I have run a 447 2 blade in my Miss Geico. It is Detounged a fair bit and after 6 laps plus mill on a 1/6th mile course the motor comes back quite hot. Good for competition but, not for sport.

I would use a 442 prop to start and maybe a x642 also but amp draw maybe high and not very long run times. A boat can be too heavy even though it's only 31" long.

I would suggest a SwordFish 200 or 220 esc from Offshore electrics.

If you could weigh the hull & hardware only I can tell you why your esc went bad, most likely too heavy. You might be better off...

RE: EP Racing Boat/NQD 757 Thread

Offset rudder makes for a faster boat and better handling since water is not spraying on it constantly.

RE: exceed or dragon sword boat Qs

Those are nice but, I've heard quality is not so great once you get it. Loose parts inside or little glue to hold things down. The layer of gel coat is very thin I've heard too.
