Hacker by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
Hi Hacker I have a 650mm deep vee with an outboard motor setup, the standard brushless motor is a 28mm 3000kv on 2s 2650mah lipo. On full throttle it sits up on the prop with no hull on the water. Increase the battery size for a long run as you have decrease your weight and have 200grams to play with !!! Canabus

Propeller for brushless by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
Hi CB90 I totally agree with you on that, they like to rev !!! Canabus

Propeller for brushless by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 14 days ago
Hi A 2 blade 32mm x 1.4 pitch would be closer to the mark. That's what my Hobbyking outboard has with a 3000kv motor, but, it's now running on 3S 2650mah. Canabus

Aerokits Patrol Torpedo Boat by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi MouldBuilder I use solid joints for motor to shaft coupling, but, Banggood have metal universal joints which come in different hole sizes. Canbus

Aerokits Patrol Torpedo Boat by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi MouldBuilder As for radios they are the same, go for the Flysky. As for servos I think Futaba ones will work, but, the price of these from Hobbyking are cheap. The good balance will have auto cutout, but, check out club members to see what they use or model car clubs. The 1100kv has power to drive the boat. The kv rating is the base and multi by the voltage to get unloaded revs. 1100 x 11.1 volts(3s) 12210 and 4S(14-8volts) 16480rpm. Canabus

Hi MouldBuilder I use the Hobbyking Turnigy IA6 which is the same as the Banggood Flysky I6 2.4G 6 channel sets. You can set up 20 different models of the one transmitter. I have both and are great units. I was scarce of this Lipo stuff years ago, but, a good balance charger with a safety bag you will be OK. A battery alarm is a cheap handy little unit or add a sensor unit into the boat so you can monitor the battery voltage at the transmitter. Check out you tube about the radio. Canabus

EBAY Boats by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi All A few links for model boats for sale !!! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MOTOR-BOAT-MODEL-KIT-PART-BUILT-L... It's a Vosper Crash Tender 46". A 16" one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vosper-Crash-Tender-model-boat/20... Huntsman https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VINTAGE-PRECEDENT-HUNTSMAN-31-WOO... Canabus

Aerokits Patrol Torpedo Boat by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Guys Looking at the motor 5,100 rpm @12 volts is 60 Watts of power. We use Hobbyking gear in our club mainly. As they have a special on a present with free delivery over $50 US. 3639-1100kv(800 Watts)(170 grams) is cheaper than the sister motor 3639-750kv(600Watts). ESC car 100 Amp is near half price. A programming card is required but these are cheap. We used a MFA Spearfish as a test boat with the 1100 and on Zippy Compact 3S 5800mah 60C(449grams) clock 27KPH. Changing to a Zippy Compact 4S 5800mah(567grams) 40C clock 37KPH. Run time a good half hour or more depending how fast you push it. We do not watercooling on this motor which will work out OK in your setup. The Hobbyking car ESC(part No.HK100A)(106 grams) has a fan for cooling and with the large interior of you boat heating will not be a problem. I am using this setup in both my Sea Commander and 1920 Gentleman's Runabout. My little Sea Hornet is using a 1900kv 28mm motor on a smaller 3S 2650mah. If you have no plans for your boat, I have a PDF copy(free of course). If you wish to go faster, a straight change over to the 3648 1450kv(1600 Watt) beast!!!! Canabus

Hi MouldBuilder As for motor upgrade a 35mm brushless motor with an ESC and lipo battery would be a far better choice. These motors are far more powerful and the Lipo batteries, less weight and delivery the power the brushless motors require. As for a prop a 2 blade 40mm or 3 blade 35/37mm. Canabus

Anyone else...... by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Check out other forums like http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/forum.php?fh=1 http://forums.offshoreelectrics.com/forum.php I found a few pics of one on rc universe and off shore is an American forum so they are right into hydro's. Canabus

Too Powerful Brushless ? by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi I found this PDF on Graupner motors. Also the Hobbyking site shows the specs on a large number of their brushless motors. I am looking at replacements for two Graupner speed 600 7.2 volts for a mate. I found a D3530/8 1700kv on Banggood with the same 5mm shaft and more grunt, less weight(74 grams against 192 grams)and about a third the price!!! I am going to install one in a Sea Commander(34") with a smaller 2 blade 32mm CNC prop on 3S Lipo 3300mah to test it out. Canabus

Too Powerful Brushless ? by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi I use 4mm stainless steel shaft with a brass or roller bearing at the motor end and a Teflon bearing at the bottom. Grease I use Dow Coring Molykote Compound 111. A squirt in each bearing and install the shaft with a finger over the inner bearing( the air escapes via the oiler tube) and cap off the oiler. I the picture is the shaft support on my Huntsman which is a slide fix for the prop shaft tube. Canabus

Too Powerful Brushless ? by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi All I am using Hobbyking 3639-1100 and 3648-1450kv motors in that size boats(Sea Commander, Precedent Huntsman and SG&K Gentleman's Runabout). 60 Amp ESC with either 3 or 4S Lipo batteries. Props 2 blade 40mm 1.4 or 1.6 pitch. The motors are a straight change over and the only change to the ESC is the low voltage setting for the 3S and 4S batteries. Canabus

SG&K gentlemans runabout by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi BigAlio Thank you for the you tube link, some very nice boats. The double seat SG&K with the motor up front was especially interesting. My single seat model preformed spot on straight up. I would drop the sides down from the bow and add in some hidden spray rails, has it is a very wet boat at slow speed and cornering.

LiPo Battery Monitor by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Andy I use the Hobbyking Low Voltage Alarm(black) part no. Alarm-Voltage. These monitor the total voltage and each cell voltage with a digital read out. The connector from the battery, the black wire is to the left looking at the front. Banggood have one without the black which does the same job.

Hi Richard Great looking boat and sits very well in the water. Good turn and turning. Well done!!! Hope you have many a good years with the Swordsman. Canabus

46" Firefloat What Motor/Battery by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Jarvo I also have a 46" Fire boat, but, it's only single shaft as I am the second owner. I am using a L5055-700kv, 4S 5800mah 40C Lipo, 60Amp esc and a 2 blade 52mm prop. In a twin setup a pair of Hobbyking 3639-1100kv on 3S or 4S batteries with 60Amp ESC's and 3 blade 37mm props and if you wish more speed a straight change over to the sister motors the 3648-1450kv but you may have to drop the props back to 2 blade 40mm. Canabus

What is this boat ????? by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Dave M Pics as required, one Sea Hornet 28mm brushless motor 1700kv, 3S Lipo 2650mah and a 2 blade 32mm prop. Canabus

What is this boat ????? by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi All The boat is not a Sea Hornet which is 642 mm long and the stern is totally different, also, the rear cockpit is to far forward. It is still a nice boat and would look well restored. I have the original plan and boat. Canabus

Hi Replacing the drive shaft with a flex drive can be done, but, flex drives DO NOT LIKE REVERSE !!!! They are only design for high speed boats. Canabus

Sea Queen Water Line by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Andy I looked on the original Aerokits plan which I have as a PDF copy and no Water Line marks on the plans. Canabus

motors by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi pilot ChrisF is about right with the overland, but, if it's Hobbyking stuff. A Turnigy L5055C-700kv 1600watts on 4 to 6S with a 100Amp ESC which will handle up to 6S. I am starting with a 2blade 52mm CNC prop(377000019) on 4S. The 3674 1900kv is more for a high speed race boat. Canabus

Sea Queen by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Guys I have a PDF copy of the original Aerokits plans, but, it has no frames. With a few measurements I think the frames can be got for these plans. I did this on the Sea Hornet plans. So if you guys require the original plans PM me. Canabus

850 Brushless by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Andy Slightly more power with a brushless motor is a no go!!! Brushless motors the same size are far more powerful !!! But, the about same RPM a Turnigy L5055-700kv(500 rpm more on a 4S(14.8 volts) Lipo battery would be a good replacement. Mind you at 1600 watts( about 2 and 1/4 HP) these will used in a large boat like a 46" Vosper Crash Tender or a 46" Sea Queen!!! My move into brushless motors I have found that they are 7 to 10 times more powerful and equal to, if not better than the old IC motors!!! My Sea Hornet, Sea Commander and Huntsman run brushless motors . My Crash Tender is getting the 5055 motor, so it will be interesting to see what it will go like!!

Hi Andy I have received paper plans folded up and the first thing is I roll them and place in a cardboard tube. The tubes are free from carpet places. Canabus

Prop Shaft Grease by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi All I was told to use plumber's tap silicon grease, which I have used for 3 years and only regreased once each year. I have added oiler/grease tubes to my rudders as well. Also you can get a silicon spray like WD40, but, with the silicon spray it crawls up the shaft. With the shaft out and the tube cleaned out(pipe cleaner works well for this) a shot of silicon grease in each end of the tube(only small amount). Hold your finger over the other end and install the shaft, this stops the grease coming out as the shaft comes through. A shot of silicon spray down the oiler tube and seal silicon fuel tube sealed off at one end. Canabus

huntsman 46 by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Pilot I have the Precedent Huntsman 34" hull with the 3648-1450kv, 100 Amp car ESC, 2 blade 40mm 1.4 pitch CNC prop and at present only running on a 3S 5800mah Lipo. I am still working on the cabin and that windscreen. Installed the front, rear, toilet and kitchen windows and frames today. The boat is very quick in the 35-40KPHour mark, so it's not slow. Canabus

huntsman 46 by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Pilot If you are using 540 can size (35-36mm brushless motor) a 3639-1100kv 800watts, 3648-1450 1600watts or a XK 3674-1900 1769 watts. All run on 100Amp ESCs, but check the maximum voltage they handle. I use car ESCs with the electric fan on top because they run cooler at slow speeds and no water plumbing required. The same with the motors no cooling. Props for these motors 37mm 2 blade or 40-45 mm 2 blade. If you go for a larger motor for a larger prop, a L5055-700kv 1600watts same ESC, but, start with a 2 blade prop about 52mm. Battery a 3-6S 5800mah or more with a C rating of 40 plus. I have used the 35mm motors in 34 to 40" boats, but, for my 46" Vosper Crash Tender I am going to the 5055. To large a prop will cause over heating of the ESC, battery and Motor. A in line amp meter(Hobbyking 9598000004-0) is the one in use. It reads the maximum amps, so for run speed amps slow speed up to maximum as a hit the throttle hard will give you maximum amps. Canabus
