Question

AquaCraft Gator Airboat


Anyone have one of the AquaCraft Airboats? What do you think of it? How well does that SuperTigre engine run, perform?? Anyone consider converting it over to a brushless outrunner??

One of the guys in our club converted to brushless. Somebody else asked about his setup awhile back. You can see what I posted here:

I'm in the middle of my conversion, and was inspired by Prins's posting a while back. Hope to finish before summer is out. Damn work has been keeping me out of the shop *&*(^^&^%$#

I would suggest an E-Prop of the same dimensions, on my (not aquacraft) airboat I tried my 9X6 from the OS 0.25, and it was ordinary, put a 10 X4.7 Electric prop and was far superior.
