After the first step of my Mystic 400 (40cm length cf page 9) there is the second one, 45cm length and now the speed is 91km/h (X430/R-2xLeo 2040/4450kV-3S/1000), with a run with an average speed of 88km/h for 100m.

Two pictures and one video at 82 km/h (K31-2xHK 2040/4800kV-3S/1000) :

The full scratch build of this version starts here.

Apart from that's fast, I thought it was much bigger until the guy picked it up!

By the way, this goes for everyone, please don't encourage your videographers to use the zoom when filming.
They always miss half the run!!

Other than that, great little boat!

Hello from France,

Many thank you for your good words !
Making this boat is a real pleasure, as well as to see it running !!!

Mozzyrocks : I'm alright with you !...

Kruno : since these performances have been made many guys are going to make this boat in 400 size, and one in 29cm size, thanks to your plans !!!
Thank you again.

Since the last post I have replaced the Leo 4450kV with Leo 4800kV (timing 22.5°) and I passed the wall of 100 km/h !!!
I think it is a great performance for this size ! (for the curious the Photomate file is there)

I will make a video after the holidays.

One more time I thank you Pulsar/Kruno !

Good work!!

I can't wait for that video!

I've been inspired to repair my boat tonight after my WOT impact with a submerged tree.

I too will have some footage once back on the water. New paint scheme to come too, no more Genesis paint.

A little bit late, but this is a video of the 450 Mystic, which is now pass the wall of 100 km/h (100-104 km/h)

I have a big problem with the direction not yet solved ... (a motor stops when I engage and sometimes during the run !)

It stops because your at the thermal limit of the ESC, so it shuts down to save it self and cool down.
The slow running at the end of each run is REALLY heating it up.

Hello Jim,

Thank you for your response.
But the problem is very complexe, I will try to explain it.

At the start, the middle or the end of the run, the problem is there. I run for 4-5 minutes and the ending voltage is about 3.85V.

The pb is when I turn on the both sides : the inside motor stops (right when I turn to the right and left when I turn to the left).
I inverted ESCs, changed motors, batteries, two different digital servos. I used one integrated BEC, two integrated BEC, changed the position on the receiver ...

I use two Turnigy Marine 35A with integrated BEC, two Nano-Tech 3S/1000mA (4 pairs) directly plugged on the ESC, a Spektrum AR6200.

The only things I didn't change are the receiver and one ESC.

I wil try to run without the servo, then with an other receiver ...
