Current Draw Measurements of the Brushed Geared Speed 600!

Guys,

You might think I am a nut, however, I filled UP my BATH Tub and placed the Coast Guard Rescue RC Model in the water and started her UP!

Used two (2) 3-Cell, Turnigy 3-Cell, 2200mAH, 25C, Li-POLY connected in Parallel and carefully measured the current Draw demand in static form.

The Results:

1/4 Throttle: 2.5 AMPs
1/2 Throttle: 4.5 AMPs
Full Throttle: 20 AMPs

3/4 Reverse: 13 AMPs

As you can see the AMP draw is no where linear and at High Throttle that Speed Propeller takes effect and makes this little boat into a speed demon.

Here is the Video!
