Hi modeleryang...

Hi modeleryang (http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/members/modeleryang.html),

If the mounting holes are 29 mm apart, the jet is intended for a 700 motor, which is a better option than a 550, which...

14,8 x 2700 x 0,8 = 31968 rpm What I mean...

14,8 x 2700 x 0,8 = 31968 rpm

What I mean is, that if a 100A ESC only has a few Fets in contact with the cooler, it'll burn as soon as the Ampdraw exceeds 20-30A.

Regards, Jan.

Hi Intense,

I take a piece of flat hardwood, the width of the Fet board and glue a piece of 120 grid sand paper onto it using double sided tape.
I clamp the wood in the vice and move the fets...

I'm running the 3700Kv motor on an ETTI 90A ESC and it barely gets warm, even on 3S, so a 100A ESC should handle a 4S...

Hi intenserapture...

Hi intenserapture (http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/members/intenserapture.html),

Mathematically 4S x 2700Kv gives you close to 32000 rpm under load, which is high for a monohull, but it can be...

RE: Need opinions on what could be wrong

Hi Peter,

I noticed in your opening post that you set the ESC's at a soft cut-off.
I accidently had done this at one of my ESC's and the runtime was 'dramatically' short (2-3 minutes),...

RE: Gyro for trim tab control?

Hi Dean,

If you're going to try this in a medium speed scale build, it may be worth a try, but you may be right as to the correction always being a bit late...

RE: old Robbe Diabolo help needed...?

Hi Colosus,

I assume you know the 1300-9 needs watercooling on both can and brushtabs, to keep is alive on 20-24 cells NiMH or 7-8S Lipo?

I added a picture of my 1300-7 with a custom made...

RE: old Robbe Diabolo help needed...?

Hi Colosus,

A large 920mm hull doesn't 'need' a flexshaft, a solid shaft will work just fine, as long as it's long enough to keep the propshaft angle at a minimum.
The angle doesn't need to be...

RE: Prince 25

Nice work Bass!

I noticed in your previous set-up that you cooled the motor first and the ESC last, I'd reverse that in the current set-up, as the motor heats up the water substantually more...

RE: turborix 2.4 tx will not set with forward only esc, pls help!

Hi PM,

If the ESC in question, or the TX at hand, gives you so much 'trouble', why not get another cheap tx/rx set from HC for this boat (and other boats that don't need a selfcentering stick,...

Hi PM,

Did you consider a ratchet for that stick?

I have one on my transmitter and use it for speedboats (forward only) and scale boats with reverse alike.

RE: RE Hobby King radio 2.4

Hi Larry,

For scale and sail they work fine.

It may be an idea to get a seperate receiver for each model, to save time and trouble swapping from boat to boat.

I'm running all my models...

RE: RE Hobby King radio 2.4

Hi Blizard,

As long as your transmitter can 'see' the boat (no obstructions by buildings etc.) these 2,4 sets even work on speedboats, where the roostertail is notorious for blocking the radio...

RE: can i make it turn better

Hi Tony,

What you describe is typical for a surface piercing drive, as your boat has, it's called propwalk; the rotation of the prop, combined with the fact only one blade is in the water, will...

RE: Couple of boats to choose from

Hi Madworm.

The Shockwave and SV27 are well known, the V24 is the most scale looking boat, but it has the same motor as the much smaller Arpro, the 3635 1520KV outrunner is way too small for...

RE: LiPo Q

Hi John,

Running lipo's in a 'hot' set-up requires pre-heating the lipo to 40°C prior to the run, failing to do so may result in bloating.
This is a 'normal' response of a Lipo that's been...
