Guys, my MTB has a tendency to get a little flooded by her bow wave when under way at high speeds. She has a scale spray suppression rail at the bow which is notched like the full-size. I do not want to mount anything TOO gross but do any of you have some practical suggestions to make to alieviate this problem?
Aren't you supposed to be riding over that bow wave not wallowing in it? If you have Lipo batteries you probably have brushless motors (kV? how many cells?) - try a smaller prop - much smaller - let the motors run free and show what they are capable of.
I do so agree that I should be flying, not ploughing. In fact, she does plane quite well, but she is 'dirty' at very high speeds.I am concerned that sooner or later, I will have electrical problems, despite trying to be careful not to overuse the throttle.
She is fitted with 2 x JP EnErG brushless 600 O/R 1550 (C35 141), driving 38mm scale-type brass three bladers, contra-rotating. The pack is a 7.4 v, 30C lipo.
