Can you please tell me where you found the Octura M545 prop and what batteries are you using? That's some serious speed ouf of that boat. Great job!
Do you have any other mods or upgrade on it?
Thanks

Props & stuff

The M545 I got from Kintec, the batteries are Hyperion 4s 4200mah.
The only other mods are scuffing the bottom with 1000 grit and adjusting the strut to 0 degrees.

I also got the M545 from kintec. I have no mods to my revolt but the prop, will sharpen my rudder, strut and turn fins this week and run it again over the weekend, running on 2- 2s 5000mah 40c sky lipos. I will bring my turn fins up also as they were catching some last time out..

This run I hit 44.2mph

Stock revolt 30 with m545 prop (0 min 49 sec)

Where are you runnin lildvl? Boat looks pretty good to me.

I recieved a new Leopard 4074 & Seaking 180 last night. I was thinking about putting it in the Revolt but, it may be a bit too much....and not quite enough for the new Cheetah.

ugh

Revolt etc

It's nice to have a pond close by, The Centreville pond is very close to me but, you have to pre-arrange to run boats there. I think the weekend of the 20th is the last time this year we can run.

Supposed to be in the 20s tomorrow morning.

I got quite a few close by but no one around me runs rc boats.. Me and my dad are hoping to do some runs this weekend.

If you dont have a use for the 4074 & seaking 180, let me know, i have another motley crew hull that it will work in

Hi, Mike grimracer zaborowski
I think there are serious problems with the design of the rudder, the water pickup hole is very high, need 1 inch below ( the water pickup hole should be no less than one inch below the keel) very small rudder, a minimum recommended length is 1 times the diameter of its support below Lx 15% 30”x15% = 4,5” minimum. (REVOLT 30 ONLY 4")
LVC not protects the batteries 2,9v
Water cooling system it should go through the esc first because it won't heat up the water enough to make a difference on the cooling on the motor. But if you run it through the motor first it will heat the water and then the water will heat the esc

thank you very much

Manny

Formula or not, it seems to run great on the stock rudder and doesn't seem to need a longer one at all.

What do you mean the LVC doesn't protect the batteries?

I don't know about the rudder, but the stock ESC makes me uncomfortable as well. The voltage warning is at 12V and cut-off is at 11.6V (according to the manual). On my cars, I have my LVC at 3.1v/cell, so that would be 12.4 for a 4S pack. For that reason, I bought a Seaking ESC and sold the factory ESC. That said, many people have used the factory ESC with no complaints.

The stock esc is Very good! Smooth throttle and very reliable. For that reason they are so popular and heavily used by racers. The aquacraft electronics (60esc, 2030kv and 1800kv motors) are the best provided in a rtr by my experience. Lack of programming on the stock esc is the only negative I have.

If you're relying on the LVC at 3.1v/cell it's already too discharged IMO. The best safeguard is to time your runs.

If the packs are under 3.7v/cell resting that's more than I like.
