using a 2318.40,5 prop have not got the 43mm yet.

I'm quite impressed!!! the 700sc motor does not even get hot on 16cell and me battery cables dont melt either!! much better than the other 700 I was using!!... I've got a Turn Fin handy but not sure if there is any point fixing it on?

Here is my brothers recently modified NQD mono. It still needs some work but not bad for its first run. I have one as well hopefully I launch it sometime in the next week.

Here's what I did to one a while ago. It's a bit quicker on 4s Lipo.
Cheers.
Paul.

Thanks Paul

I saw your vid a while back, nice......
mine is similar to yours, I just have to find time to get it wet. My brothers boat, in the video, is very wild on the water and sadly in need of trimming.
He said to me yesterday that he will be changing to a Lipo in the future.

Don't know much about boats, but do have this High Wind 757 as my first boat, I do know about Planes & Heli's and use lipos and 2.4ghz radio gear.

I'm happy for now with the stock setup with the twin 380 motors, but want to know what replacment props I can get. I understand the stock setup shafts are 3mm? and that I need a 'dog' drive prop but am struggling to find a suitable one. Ideally I'd like a brass or alloy pair, and that I will need a left & right prop? where can I get some please, bearing in mind I'm across the pond in the UK ?

I have a 3800mh NiCad that goes well along with the standard one that come with the boat, and have a few 2200mah lipo's and a spare ESC, what do I need to do to turn this is brushless setup, I guess I need to change the motors if I go done this route?

From flying planes, I can get the hull glass clothed to strenghen it as suggested,  and as I have the bits to go brushless even a fast motor from a combat flying wing am I on the right tracks?

My main need know is to get replacement props on the stock setup please !

Can I install a stronger battery in the NQD 767-065 that will run the boat for longer without any risk of overheating the motors ? I also need to replace a small O-ring behind one of the propellers - is it possible to obtain this
