Genesis cat build

Just want to share my genesis upgrade build will be using the stock genesis motor on my sons miss geico 24 which has a 3650 castle motor in it just received a leopard 3674 1900kv for the genesis quality looks amazing i should be receiving my ose 3/16 drive parts to convert my 4mm shaft on the genesis and a octura x440 props. I will also be reinforcing motor mounts with fiber.... Any suggestions are welcomed. Enjoy

I honestly don't believe that cooling coil on the Geico is sufficient enough.

Others may not agree with me, but, I like things to run cool.

Get a full jacket for it to save your motor overheating.

Also, if you plan on running that Leopard in your Genesis, you may want to reconsider that also.

Here's mine running on a Leopard 4082 1600kv on 6S spinning an Octura X440/3.

First run of Genesis after rebuild (0 min 0 sec)

When i was taking off the strut noticed the the stuffing tube was loose and it slid right out is this normal or should i use some epoxy to keep it in place? Or is it supposed to slide in and out of the hull???

I don't think a movable stuffing tube is a good thing.

Hi nemz305,

If I see it correctly, you have a fluxring from a brushed motor around the can of the brushless motor and put the coil around the fluxring...

Why on earth would you add an extra layer between the can and the coil?
(Most likely to make the coil fit, is my guess.)

The coil is now mainly ornamental.

Please take a camera with you when your son runs the Geico and promise him you'll replace the motor later...

Regards, Jan.
