Is that the motor end? Why not put a uni there?

That's what probably had been used before.

welcome to the club.

don't over torque the cable... you might have too much motor for the cable... you might want to drop down to a smaller prop....

rust is your enemy

and finally, hope this helps:

It's inline okay. I could get a new shaft and just stick it into the coupler. But, there definitely is no room for a uni.

That propeller should keep the mosquitos under control.

The J-B Weld held. I was able to go full throttle and measure the power.

Hi Kmot,
88 amps, that's very impressive for 1 motor, Its taken me four 700's to get to that level

Hi Bob,
Hobby king I reckon, banner at very top of RC groups, 3 people in our club have these batteries now, so far so good, the price is right too

Thanks Nick. Actually, it hit 98A yesterday during the quick full throttle test.

Bob, I got them from Hobby King as Nick thought.

I have also changed my Novak Smart Saver jumper wire from 16GA to a 12GA wire since yesterdays test. Might be a small benefit there.

hay Kmot, i see your running two bats at one time and you test with your watts up meter did you cut your wires to hook it up or does your set up have a connection between the two bats to the esc.i have a new wattsup but all my boats have two battery set up so to use it i would have to cut before my esc and install deans but i dont want to cause loss of power.
