I converted mine to a single motor, I have not run it yet, but I am still running the stock prop.

Mine has been covered and is sitting
no time and desire to mess with it just a shelf queen at this point.

I like the gear drive setup. How does it handle, the motor raise your center of gravity.

The CG is a bit higher, but i don´t think i matters that much.
The handling is good except it keeps hopping, and twisting, and i can´t figure out why...

OK, the suspense is killing me. I posted earlier that the Cesa 1882 looks almost exactly like my NQD spurt. I bought a cheapy 37" "spurt" boat by NQD because i liked the looks and wanted to "hop it up". I took out all the stock junky electronics and put it a Traxxas 16.8v EVX esc and a Graupner 700 8.4BB Turbo. I run it on 4s lipo and I added an Octura X447 prop and run it on direct drive. I also added a steel u-drive and my own water cooling pickup. It really scoots!! And a big ole rooster to boot!

Does anyone else see the resemblence? Even the drivers are the same.......... I bought it new and the box had NQD all over it. Just wondering.

Looks good but you do not need all that rudder for that boat.
You are just adding drag.


Yeah it may aid in handling but you will be better off and just fine with a single rudder.

I know it adds drag, but it looks cool and makes the handling alot better and it also improves the cooling.

But does anyone know why it keeps hopping? I have tried lowering the strut and i have moved the batteries all the way forward alongside the motor, but it doesent seem to help much...

Hey rebuilder, Looks like a good conversion. The knock off looks close to the same too. It's amazing what you can do with one of these Nqd hulls with a little tinkering. I think the tinkering is half the fun.

Hello, I built one of these Cesa 1882 aprox. 20 years ago. I used it a dozen times then broke the plastic prop. After not being able to find the correct prop for this I stored it away. Just yesterday I pulled this out of storage & i'm interested in getting it going again. I'll buy new motors and batteries and probally a new radio but I need help finding a prop. What would you recommend?
Thanks
You can use a brass sleeve to adapt the prop shaft to fit an octura prop like a 442 or something similar. I tend to think people run too big of a prop on these boats and it does go fast but drains the battery too fast.



Good Luck

Thanks Dam, I get way more enjoyment out of the tinkering............sure i've smoked some motors, but i've learned from first hand experience.....more fun that way. Plus, i have trouble buying into the old "X size hull needs X cells and X prop", people have put V8's in Pintos..............i dont think everything is exactly one way, if that were true we could all just buy generic boats.

My brother is after me to get my boat that was painted and restored to look nice this past summer going and in the water again.
I was thinking about making it single drive with a traxxas villian drive system on it.
I put it back together with the stock drive and dual motors and that lasted about 5 minutes as posted earlier.
Now its just sitting looking nice

The one in the picture is a 26cc $4,400.00 (usd) Gancia. ABC also sells the smaller gas version built with wood and fiberglass for 400 (shipped).

ABC Hobby also sells parts for the ABC Baltek and the Gancia. But they are in Japan.
