gearbox fitted, tested today with 8.4v graupner, running on 19.2v nimh. GPS Data logger Installed, measured at 14.63mph, sound like a jet turbine!!, and this video was the slower of the 2 props tested.
Improvements with gearbox, motor Is stone cold (it Is water cooled, but was still hot as direct drive) , quieter, longer run time, esc cold, now able to upgrade from 2 blade 40mm prop to 3 blade, and possibly 4 blade, amp draw much less. Video taken at Newsham Park, Liverpool. Handling Is now difficult, as Its going way too fast, but Its great fun! and might go faster, with the motor thats been fited tonight, watch this space!!

Response by pmdevlin on the 3 years ago
well that was the distant memory of brushed motors!, way back when we had gas lanterns Instead of LED's 😀

Unfortunately I cant remember the ratio, I think It was 2:1 from memory. It was later converted to brushless. Has not been run for two years since the bigger brother fireboat came along. I keep thinking just put a brushed motor back In It, and have plodding speed, It looks silly doing all that porpoising, and the bigger brother can give me my speed fix 😁
Response by CraigRobotham on the 3 years ago
Maybe a little more bow weight would stop the problem , my Spearfish used to do that all I did was put lipo length ways and It stopped , but yeah If your happy with the bigger being the faster then go for It 😊

here Is my Fireboat after extensive testing of motors, batteries and props. Full details In "power set up".

Its about to have a gearbox fitted, this should enable me to fit a larger prop, and get longer run times, hopfully!

Its going OK as It Is Paul, stop messing with It 😁

This Is a video of my completed Seaplane Tender on Bournville Boating lake In Birmingham.

The boat was completed just a few weeks ago, but the weather hasn't been right for boating.

The boat Is powered by a 7.2V 400 motor and a 7.2V 1600Mah battery.
