bout time. I'll grab one of these for sure. shame they put crap electrics in it. Motor can is to short and to high KV, everything down the line runs way to hot. will change out motor and esc immediately. longer can 1900kv and 160a esc , new prop. this set up would run low 60's easy.

Why not just buy a bare hull in this case?

That new PB looks like a little competition for the UL-1 .

If that's the case PB missed the dock by 7 or 8 years ,UL-1s are hardly ever talked about anymore.

Looks like a really cool boat. I just hope this doesn't turn out to be as disastrous of a release as the River Jet was.

However I'm not sure why they seem to think running a 2000kv motor on 6S is acceptable as far as long term reliability is concerned. That's about 50,400 RPM unloaded with 2 fully charged 3S packs.

Yeah I agree. Seems a little late to the ul-1 party lol

Yeah I noticed that. Seems they should go down on Kv. Also not sure the ESC will be up to that task?

I looked at the prop that comes on this boat, the pics show that it has a 1.7p prop on it maybe ,and with 6s seems to me that's way too much load on motor and esc.

Educate yourself on what this boat was designed for before making crap comments about "crap electronics".
