That is kinda what I thought. I am torn between the revolt and the MC? I dont want to copy my friends mc but if its a better boat then the revolt I will get it. I love the blue revolt and the battery tray is perfect being right in the middle! Problem is 4s might not be enough and not sure if this boat is controllable on 6s?
I know its a totally diff boat, but maybe a UL1? What can you do on the cheap for that boat to make it fly? Im on a 350ish budget. Thanks

Do you mean the new 1 that is 6s capable due november or the 60a one out now? I do like pro boat stuff, but there paint is boring. My sv 27 is getting @42mph for comparo. Will any of these 3 boats do 50+ on 4s?

If I get it, i'll try my 5s 4500mah 40c packs and see how she does. Then funds allowing jump to a 120a.

Dis-able the bec and prop a tad small. Shouldn't be an issue. Something like a x440 or prather 215. The 120 will def give you some head room.

Look around on the for sale forums, you can get some good deals, I've got a fightercat 140, the 42mm prop with it would go good too, I think I saw another ESC in there aswell.

To get 50+ on 4s out of any of them is going to require a lot of amps. You can get close to 50 with a Motley Crew with the stock motor/esc, but I'm not sure if anyone has actually gotten over 50 without going to a higher amp ESC.

I can see now 50 on 4s is not going to happen. My friend's MC has the 120 in it and it is still at @43 on 50c 4s batts and a prop. I just need more cash and to run a 120a and 6s and have the speed I want. I would like mid 50's, so we will see.

I would love to hear from actual owners too. Thanks

Strut adjustment and a m445 you can get 45-47 on 4s stock. 50s on 5s should be obtainable. Most all my setups are 4s and most are in or can run 50+ depending on how I prop it. I'm just not a big 6s fan, just a me thing though. I like 4s with the possible 5s. 5s is my fav voltage and 1700-1800 is my fav kv range. Like I said just a me thing

Wonder if an x642 would nip at 50mph?

No harm in asking again, but has anyone thrown a 4074 or 4082 in one.......?.........anyone planning on it?
