Question
Joysway magic vee

Hi guys, for a few months I have owned a magic vee; but I would like a spare battery, and thought of going lipo, as have done with my rc car, the difference is astonishing, does anyone have any suggestions on which one to get?

I'm thinking of getting one from purple power, but not sure because of size!

You'll have to base it purely on physical measurements, I'm sure there isn't much room at all in that hull. hobbyking.com typically has decent measurements for the lipo packs they sell, just measure the battery area then get a pack that fits in there. You'll want to stay with 2s so you don't fry the stock electronics too.

Can the stock ESC handle a 2S lipo?

Hi Robadob,

As the stock layout is for NiMH, I don't think the ESC will have a lipo cut-off, so it's up to you to keep an eye on the speed and the runtime, to avoid damage to your lipo.

As soon as the (top)speed starts to drop, bring the boat in for a recharge.

Regards, Jan.

HI Robadob,

As Jan said. just watch your Bats. voltage. Run a few minutes, bring it in check the voltage. After you do that a few times you can figure out about how much runt ime you have for the bats. Then just keep your run times at or BELOW that time. Best of luck!

Sorry to go OT in this thread but it seems to be active. Does anyone know of a source to get a "Magic Vee" in the USA or the best source to purchase from internationally?

Thanks,

Hank

Hobby People. I picked one up a week ago for $50.

Do you guys know how fast this thing goes on a 2S lipo?

Thanks for the quick link. I still can't manage to find the magic vee. I see the magic cat but not the vee. Am I just missing it or what?

Thanks
