Tear Into RC Jet Boat
« on: May 06, 2012, 07:04:56 PM »
Had some fun with my toy boat, modified with brushless motor and a 30Amp ESC powered by a 2200mah 11.1v LiPo.

I love the on board cam view.  Not really enough space to open it up in there, but you would not want to be on very rough water with such a small boat either.
I don't always fly a good gyro, but when I do, I prefer Vbar...Stay inverted my friends!

Thanks Wayne,

Yes indeed, there was actually a beach just outside the pool perimeter hahahaha

I think I put the battery too much to the front, hence the hopping mode and the jet looses water supply, or the boat is simply to light in weight.

Up it to a 6S 3000 and you will have some more weight  :130:

But be careful, not all esc's and motors can handle 6S....

I was totally being stupid there.  You drop a 6S 3000 in it and it is going to sink straight to the bottom of the pool, so I don't think he will have to worry about the ESC  :laugh25:  :laugh25:

You need pics of your models racing around hot bikini chicks  :130:  Like the ones I posed with at IRCHA last year.
