    Jae 33Fe V2 best motor choice on 6s

    A 2080kv on 6S is a SAW or 2 lap record setup. Works but very narrow and precise range of props. We use 1400-1700kv motors and M445 -1450's - 1717 &1719 /38 props. 65 to 70 mph and you don't need to lift in corners. 140-160 amp draw with a 4074 allows inexpensive Flycolor 150's Mic

    Jae 33Fe V2 best motor choice on 6s

    One thing to consider is too much power. If you power beyond a hulls capability you have an ill handling boat that is a nightmare to drive. Easy to overpower with FE and power takes more battery. As Shawn said our 4074 setups perform and run efficiently. Plus cost for motor and esc stay...

    1/8TH Scale IMPBA 8s or 10s ?

    With the recent release of the Castle XL2 being the best affordable almost bulletproof controller we have seen in a long time and 8S capable I would opt for 8S all day long. 2 4S in series you can use all those P batteries you already have. Mic

    Drones

    There are drones you fly with manual control. Most like the DJI you set an altitude just above the trees and push it left right forward back with the sticks. You can fly higher or lower at any time. You can rotate the drone as the camera's generally are locked forward and just angle straight or...

    Zipp 30 motor recommendations

    The M series has a reduced leading edge. (detounge) I am generally more concerned with diameter.

    Zipp 30 motor recommendations

    On 4S with your 3630 1950 will work very well with an M445 or ABC 1714-1715. X642 also. I cut down a bit of diameter on 45mm props to keep the heat down as you have more than enough blade aea to carry the boat. 6S with a KV in the 1400-1600 range will work but overpowering will result in...

    Gas prop to electric jet conversion?

    I would go with the Castle XL2 which is a proven ESC on 8S. 4S batteries in parallel are plentiful and reasonably inexpensive. A 4070 TP from 900 to 1100kv and you should make 60-70 mph and decent FE run time. 200-300 amps. Props from 52mm-62mm diameter. Stay with the 1/4 drive and get a step...

    Is the OB class doomed?

    To quote Yoda "there is another" Brandon put two FE Tunnel classes on the roster and 5 Tunnels entered. 2 in Q/L and 3 in P/L. FE is another possible area to grow tunnel numbers. I applaud Carl and Gabe for all their efforts plus the Atwells for keeping the faith and all the racers who support...

    How does the MGM outperform? Performance or features. Not reliability with the ones I have had. Mic

    HURRICANE

    I have a mess to clean up but watching the local news footage from a helicopter flying around the Sanibel causway has sections totally gone. The island will be isolated for a long time. 50-60ft boats piled on top of each other in marinas. We had 140mph winds in my Neiborhood. Older buildings...

    HURRICANE

    We are on the east side of the eyewall and winds 120-140mph. Still have a roof but trees are a mess. Two more hours and were clear of wind. Now the water is rising above my seawall but I am 14ft above so it might get close. Jay lost some shingles but hes fine. Mic

    HURRICANE

    Maybe in a day or two I can tell you what it's like in the eye of a Hurricane. Couple of not fun days ahead. Big question is when we lose power then how long do I have to run generators. And chain saws. Mic
