Mtb Bpc 71'6"

Got my MTB project in the water at our clubs annual Dine and Cruse night on Feb 4. Every Year the Rideau Nautical modellers go to Perth for a dinner and then a night at the local pool for shake down cruises of our newly completed projects.
I really like the way she performs with that MCD SC480 ESC no glitches good acceleration. With the twin Robbe700/13 motors it really moves out. High speed runs had the 12v 7.2 amp lead cell drained after about 15 min of run time. To be expected with this setup. Still had some battery, mind you could only run at a very sedate speed, after an hour.
Some things I will consider:
1) I think that I will install a water cooling system for the ESC and maybe even the motors just to be sure.
2) Will consider using 35mm two bladed racing props to see if the performance and run times improve. The 3 bladed props are fairly agressive and move her along at very scale like speeds however.
