FINALLY finished my Mystic 29!!

Well I was finally able to order the rest of my parts in needed. Many thanks to Jan at Kintec Racing. Awesome customer service to say the least! Now I just have to wait for the water to thaw......how bout now? Leopard 4074 2200kv, Seaking 180 (V2), Kintec flex shaft, water cooled mount. I had to fabricate some "stilts" for the motor mount out of 2mm Carbon Fiber to raise it up off the hull and line up with the flex shaft. Got a 3 piece collet from Jan also. The teflon tube didnt fit in the brass tube so I filled it with marine grease in a syringe. Hoping to maiden it saturday, draggin the wife with me to video. Cant wait to see how this Puppy Rips!!!!

8 to 10 mins is actually very good to be honest. to get 20 mins you would need 2 packs in the area of 10000mah a piece. FE boats just pull to many amps to run for much longer.

Anything over 4-5 minutes is typically a really long run for a FE boat.
