H&M Skyper Mono 1

Hi guys!

I saw this hull last year and I thought I'll give it a try. Excellent quality as usual, good finish and very solid.
One thing I changed from the original is the height of the cockpit: added about 2cm to help the floodchamber.

Hardware: Stinger - home made, with 2 pcs 8x5mm H&M teflon bearings
Cable - H&M 3.2mm x 5mm with M4 or Dog Drive
Cupler - H&M 5mmx3.2mm
Motor support - home made
Props - Graupner Carbon 35, 37.5; Octura X437

Electric:
Motor - Leopard 4042 4000kv (1200W max)
ESC - Sunrise 100A BEC
Baterii - 2S: No name 5200 30C or Etti 5200 20C
Servo - not yet decided, but definitely a mini
RX/Tx- Spektrum Dx5, Orange DSM2 6ch receiver

Still waiting for a Graupner rudder or an Etti do see which fits best...

Hello!

I am also a skyper owner, i haven't make flood chamber to work jet, but the boat is super stabile so flood chamber is not so urgent, still it's a good idea.
Will you install the flood chamber suplied by hydro marine? (that weird thing that's supoast to go in the back of the boat)
I got my boat with it already instaled and had a lot of problems ataching the strut.

5200mah is a good idea, don't use any less as the boat is not so economical with power (same setup on a diferent boat will have less consumption)

Your boat looks very good, have fun racing it

here is my boat http://www.freewebs.com/blazalb1/skyper.htm

Yours looks better in red I started buying/building yellow boats and I'm trying to stick to it...
I am trying to avoid the use of their "box" by modifying the cockpit. Hopefully it will be ok.

You get decent race speeds with the 540S? I have a couple of them, as well as some 28mm from Leopard in 4000kv, so this option is still open. The 28mm Leopard is rated at 1000W vs the 630W of the Feigao 540S series, so I could be ok and save some weight and current...

Well I actualy wanted a yellow hull but the color wasn't awalible at the time...but red turned out very good
I had a 380S no name 3900kv motor and a graupner k37.5 propeler on a race, didn't go as fast as it should as a had prblems with rudder being to wide and slowing down my boat.
I did replace the rudder but still, 540S gives me more speed, but I only tested it once for now (frozen lake, burned ESC etc.)

Here in Slovenia, most people have 540S size motors in Mono1 category...

Am looking forward to see a video of your boat :P
