Hello,

Today we had a long and intensive spring maintenance day together, Olli has changed powerplant in his Watercat 1500 SAR Kotka to electric one from CY26 gasoline,
new is Dualsky XM63 series outrunner, kv 305, with Dualsky 90A 2-12s esc.
Old gasoline motor gearbox is still in use in electric setup.

We get info, that there is some open water in closeby pond, finally, so
tomorrow is first test run,

My PV260 Watercat 1300 buckets are now trimmed and working, testing it also tomorrow.
Hope there is enough large open water area, I´ll be running with 2 X 10S lipo set-up, it is truly interesting how all these jet modifications are working

BR,
Hannu

Hello,

Today we had a fantastic weather, and some open water also!
We get both Watercats running, Olli´s first electric trial after gasoline conversion was complete success!

PV Kotka was equipped with 6S 4500mAh lipos at 28amps static, my PV260 2 X 10S 6000mAh Polyquest

Hello,

 actually it was maybe one of the season´s finest days today, first run in between the ice patches while sun is shining, it was making driving more exiting than in total open waters ..:-)

moving accurately sideways, have a look: http://vimeo.com/22202125

Hello,

Well, back to the finetuning of Watercat 1300, now speed test made, according to gps it showed 38,7 km/h //  21KTS top speed.
Not that fast as I was expecting, but little bit more than with old keel configuration.

Also, balance point was a bit too much on front, but in high speed it was slightly still too much nose up, so next tuning is to mount
movable trim plates

Best regards,
Hannu
