I didnt expect the 3 blade to be faster. I bet it feels great to see it gain more top speed

I once didnt program an old esc (an old proboat shockwave 26 bl) from NiMH into lipo mode and so i puffed open my battery, luckily it didnt blow up into flames and destroy the boat!

The 53kmh video:

-This prop defenitly moves the boat faster! :P

The higher amp draw from the 3 blade prop is putting the esc into lvc cutting in, this can be a common problem with some esc's when amp load is increased. Sometimes you have to turn off the lvc all together & time runs so as not to discharge batteries to low.

I paid 295.00 (GBP) which is $381.00 (USD) !

Europeans always seem to pay more when compared to the US.

I saw a YouTube video with a Recoil 26 fitted with 6S and it ended badly with a cracked hull and broken canopy.
