Motor swap for self rigthning


The gravityrunner self-right function on my offshore infinity is kinda rubbish, i managed to get it to 30 degree leaning i guess. my idea was if i had an outrunner motor in my infinity it will self-right in no time hitting the throttle like my other boat Rocket 26, cuz as now the self rigthning on infinity doesnt work at all.

Is your battery in the stock location? I have 2 infinity's and they both flip quite nicely.


If you want to drop in an outrunner, then you will need to swap the motor mount for a water-cooled version. And the stock one is not easy to get out with out some cutting, so be forewarned.

ESC and receiver sit between the motor and steering servo: http://resources.hobbystores.co.uk/p...-js-9305_d.jpg

Could be too much weight was added that affected balance and self-righting.

A quick google search for " 2845-3540 KV outrunner" got "About 203 results (0.34 seconds) ", so no real lack of easily findable choices.
