So I changed it out and got my tubing bender ahold of the stuffing tube and bent it back as true as I could get it. This boat will really haul the mail when I get my good packs fully charged in it.

Veles 29 Hits 75mph (121kmh)!!!!


Ran the boat today and I have to say I believe that I still left some mph on the table... I didn't have the trim knob centered so I had to stop halfway on my first pass to center it then I took off again from the middle of the lake and I only got 75.18mph (121kmh). I had to let out a little early due to the boat getting very close to shallow waters on the other end of the lake. O well I guess there is always the "next run"... Thanks to Dasboata for the prop work!

Veles 29 hits 57mph on 4s!!


I finally took the Veles out today for a 4s run. The speeds were 56.3mph and 57mph from the GPS devices. I ran several laps on this run with this setup and the temps were 140 ESC and 145 motor. Thanks to my "Propsmith" Chris Hoffman for the custom ABC prop. Batteries used were SMC 2x2s 5200mah 7.4 volt

Impressive, same prop as with 6s?
It looks slow and under powered compare to 6s, but gps do say something else. 4s speed will save the boat for long lasting ownership, perfect for small ponds.

It's not easy to find large enough water for 57MPH.

In a large pond they sometimes appear to be going slower than they actually are...6s is definitely faster...lol! No, this was a different prop. This prop is a 1816 custom cut by Chris strictly for 4s runs on this boat.

A couple of runs today with the Veles on a windy day. The first run I was running 4s 2x2s 5200mah SMC 90c 100% all stock and got 42mph. The next run was a 6s run with a 1716 using 2x3s SMC 5200 90c lipos and got 72mph. The SMC's I thought might rival my Revo 420's 5000mah but they came up a bit short, However, in all fairness the conditions weren't the greatest for the SMC's for matching apples to apples. I would say they are very close to My Gens Ace in performance wise in this boat.

Veles 29 100% all stock on 4s 10-29-17 (5 min 40 sec)

Veles 29 with SMC Lipo's speed test (72mph) 10-29-17 (6 min 0 sec)

Veles touch up paint option


For anyone looking for touch up paint for the Veles I have found a combination that looks decent. It's not an exact match but close enough for me. I mixed some Testors Sublime green with Gloss Bright lime and It blends in and matches where I have to really look for the spot in order to find it, so I am ok with it until something better is found. I believe this could be made an exact match if one wanted to keep mixing until you mixed the exact shade. In the below picture with me holding the two bottles together you can see the spot that I touched up with it.
