    (Pleasure Craft) Precedent Huntsman 34"
    I bought it with a Merco 40/electric starter/radio as an unfinished boat. Changing over the brushless electric. (Motor: 3648-1450kv) (ESC: Hobbyking 100A car) (5/10)
    (Fire Boat) Vosper Crash Tender
    I bought it cheap and in good condition, but with no running, driveline brushes required replacing, a repaint of the deck and uppers and rewire the lights. (Motor: L5055C-700kv) (ESC: Hobbyking car ESC 100A) (8/10)
    (Racing Boat) Blue Vee
    40 year old fibreglass hull finally finished. Using it for testing motors and props. (Motor: 3639-1100kv) (ESC: Hobbyking 60A car) (6/10)
    (Racing Boat) White Vee
    Venom Ocean Racer converted from brush to brushless motor. ABS hull. Turned a lemon into very fast boat. (Motor: 3648-1450kv) (ESC: Hobbyking 60A car) (7/10)
    (Racing Boat) No name
    Plywood frame and skinned with balsa. Three coats of fibreglass resin on the outside and one coat inside. Hobbyking F1 outboard. Shelfed the boat after a number of 3mm flex drive breaks and the hobby store double the price of the replacement ones. Will change to inboard with the same motor, but with a 4mm flex drive setup, also replace the deck and cockpit. (Motor: 3000kv OUTBOARD) (ESC: Hobbyking 60A car) (8/10)
    (Pleasure Craft) Aerokits Sea Hornet
    Building from the original plans(25 and 1/4 inch). One piece plastic windscreens, customized engine and rear deck opening. Planking the deck with 5mm blackwood and 3mm Huon pine veneer at present. After 2 years running, a rebuild, the prop is 32mm 1.4 pitch 2 blade brass and clocked at 45 KMH. I only run on 3S but can run on 4S, it's a sleeper at low speed and a rocket on throttle. (Motor: B28-57-15L) (ESC: Hobbyking 6oA car) (8/10)

    Hi Bill
    A Hobbyking 3639-1100kv 800Watt on a 3S 5800mah Lipo battery with a 100Amp ESC and for a prop 2 blade 40-45mm.
    If you require a faster motor a 3648-1450kv is a straight change over with all the other bits the same.
    Also you can change the battery to 4S and it will be a rocket.

    Hi justkiddin
    I live in Hobart, so not to far away from you mate.

    My mate and I both have Sea Hornets, his has a funny cabin on it also.
    Mine is build by the original plans.
    Brushless 28mm 1900kv, 45Amp ESC on 3S with a 32mm prop.
    Was GPS at Lauderdale canal at 45KPH.
    WE sail on a Saturday morning from 9 to 12, so if you are down this way call in.

    Hi Guys
    If you use the 3639-1100kv(800 Watts), you can straight change over to a 3648-1450kv(1600 Watts).

    So starting with the 1100kv
    3s=12,210 rpm
    4S=16,280 rpm

    The 1450kv
    3S=16,095 rpm
    4S= 21,460rpm

    Only double the power and 5,000 rpm more!!!!
    And the 1450kv can handle 6S, if you are brave !!!!!

    Hi Bengtt

    For that size model I use a Hobbyking 3639-1100kv brushless motor or a D3548/4 1100kv on a 3S lipo battery(between 3700-5800mah), a 60 or 100Amp car ESC (HK-60A-SL or HK-100A), program card(HK PROG-CARD).
    I have a good setup for this system, if you require.

    Prop start with the one you have, but I use a 2 blade 40mm or 3 Blade 37mm (brass or CNC).

    Slightly over scale speed, depending on the boat.

    I use 10mm magnets in a double setup, one mounted on the hull and one on the cabin on each corner of the cabin.
    On my last Perkasa I used the double setup forward and a single double setup on the stern.
    The total weight of the boat is six pounds and I can lift the boat by the cabin!!!

    ๐Ÿ’ฌ HMS BRAVE BORDERER
    5 months ago by canabus ( Midshipman)
    Flag
    Hi All
    The boat had the rudder completely vertical to start with and that is the problem.
    With the rudder vertical the boat pulls the bow down in the turns which makes it sit up on the chine.
    A planning hull attack angle is about four degrees to the water, but these boats like an angle of about six degrees.
    The leading edge of the rudder and the angle of it governs bow lift or dip in the turns.
    Also the balance point of the boat is as important as the rudder setup.

    Hi
    A few pics of my modify setup, no pics before hand.
    Moving weight fore or adding ballast works better than wedges.
    Only tested the boat by myself and I gave it a real workout.
    Motor 3639-1100kv, 60A ESC, 5800mah Lipo and 37mm 3blade prop.
    A 40mm 2blade works better and uses a bit less power.
    Rudder blade size 30mm across the top, 22mm across the bottom, 45 deep and the shaft 10mm from the leading edge.
    Sharpen the leading edge and the trialing edge flat.
    This catches are air in the water and send it to the surface.

    If you require a brush ESC.
    The Hobbyking one is the only one I have found with straight forward/ reverse with NO BRAKE.
    Set is with links, but the they only work on Nicads and Lipo batteries.
    They will run on 12 volt SLA, but no less!!!!
    I am using them in my two Hellen fishing boats with 55 turn rock crawler motors on 2S Lipo on 60% throttle.

    Hi RHBaker
    I had the motor ,so I used it.
    The sister motor is a 3639-750kv 600Watts 8325 rpm on 3S.
    The 3639-1100kv 800Watts 12210 rpm on 3S.
    Next up the 3648-1450kv 1600Watts 16095 rpm on 3S.
    All are straight bolt replacement, but, the 3648 requires a 100Amp ESC.

    The 3639 750kv would be the better motor for the boat to get scale speed.

    Hi Sandgrounder
    There are a number of speed 400's with voltage range from 4.8 to 7.2 volts.
    The revs range is between 16,400 to 22,000 rpm.
    So 28mm brushless like a Prop Drive V2 2836- 1800kv(shaft 3.175mm) on a 3S Lipo battery with give you 19,980 rpm.
    ESC 45Amp.
    Prop 30-32mm 2 blade.
    If it's tight of battery space Hobbyking have small ones you can parallel together like the Turnigy 3S 1500mah 25C (73 x 33 x 27 mm).

    Installed the deck and filled around the edges.
    Gave the hull a quick run and it handle very well.
    Good turning circle and at 50% throttle still over scale speed.
    3/4 throttle looks about right.
    About to start planking.

    Hi All
    Installed the rudder with oiler, also installed the 60 turn motor with metal joint from banggood.
    Installed the 4.5KG servo with linkage to the rudder.
    First coat of Matt 37 which showed up a few spots that require a bit of filling.
