Kyosho Jet Stream GP10

Hi all,

Just bought an old Jetstream out of Ebay and thought I give it a new paintjob and upgrade the small nitro-engine to a fast brushless.
It would be great to get suggestions on a cheap but fast motor and a esc to use for this project.
I bought it for 30 bucks so if i could find something in that pricerange it would be great.

Hi Jesse,

Could you post some pictures of your boat?
The rear end is the main point of interest.

If the boat has the stock steering outdrive, a fast brushless motor will eat that up very quickly...
You'll have to replace the hardware to be able to put some substantual power in that hull.

Chances are the plastic hull has aged and got brittle, is it painted, or has it turned yellow(ish)?
Upgrading an older ABS hull usually involves re-inforcing it to prevent it from falling apart during fast runs.

Regards, Jan.

..and posting in the Racing Boats - Electric forum will get more answers on converting your racing boat to electric drive than in the Dock Talk forum. I had posted my fast scale questions there and got lots of advice.
