... no clue when ill actually be able to run her.
Sorry for delay, lot's of stuff was going on...
Tested this setup. I was very VERY pleased with how the motor performed. Sadly I did forget my eagletree at home. I ran the setup 3 different times for 3 minutes each. The hottest the motor reached was 105F and the Swordfish 200 reached 115F at the boards. The motor/esc did not mind the prop. I did however find that the hull did not like the prop at all which was disappointing. The prop was a x447/3 cut down to 42mm, detongued with a slight cup. I generated a lot of prop walk in the hull and the transom had a very noticeable shimmy. I love the motor/esc combo though. I ran twice on 4s1p setups. The first was Gens Ace 2s 5300mah 25c/50c they handled pretty good, but did kick the lvc in prematurely a few times. I figured they where getting pushed for that to happen, next I tried 2s 6000mah 25/50c nano-techs. They also kicked in premature on the lvc even more then the Gens aces. I then went to 4s2p and the hull liked the extra weight and the system responded better to the 2p setup. I gps'd the first run with a disappointing 48.8mph, but when I seen how bad the prop walk was, speed (like normal for me) wasn't a goal. I wanted to try some different props, but of course my prop box was next to my eagle tree left at home
I'm thinking a m445 next or even actually propping down to a grim 40x52/3 and using a 1p setups as i have more 2s packs then 4s packs. I also have my trusty grim 42x55 I would like to try. My goal is to get this think running as perfect as I can get without top speed as the #1 goal. I'll load some video soon.
