The fact that it will be broken on arrival is not bad packaging just an adjustment to keep it up to date and to scale  {-) {-) {-) {-)


Question is still unanswered
Should look pretty cool, who is selling them ?

Being a Kiwi I got very curious about a model of this so I went hunting and found several sites. Here is one http://totally-rc.co.uk/index_files/Page3505.htm

Nice looking model, just can't quite put my finger on what is incorrect on this version.

If anyone is modeling the shonin maru 2 then revenge will be sweet lol  prop foulers
hope to have it at Wicksteed this yr with twin 500 motors not a single brushless as they give too much welly and any changes made to make it as real as possible prior the incident laser nav lights radar gps mods etc

Getting the earthrace but prefer realism over stupid speed so the plan is to use a twin motor setup as per the real thing the model is 920mm long and weighs 6,5 kg
it comes with a 3.4kv single brushless setup this will be removed but what props shafts and motor combo's would be best for good speed but nice slow running?
cheers

well thanks for that i just want a good usable boat that is as close to the real one as i can get it
i am not into brushless as slow running is not smooth as i found out with rc cars would sooner whack in a couple of 480 500 size motors that would give good perfomance and slow running

You have a left thumb for a reason - speed control ;)

It was a pretty rapid boat anyway...

It depends on the speed controllers if you buy good brushless one you can crawl along without a problem I had the same problem with cheap brushles ones but got some better ones and no problem, there is a video on hear from red181 with his boat on brushless on hear

he uses    http://www.castlecreations.com/products/products_boat.html   they are great to set up if a bit expensive.

I assume that your 3.4Kv actualy means 3400 Kv?, there are a bigger range of brushless motors with different Kvs compared to brushed motors, picking an appropriate motor is much easier I thing, turns, what the hell is turns <*< ( of course i do know) most wouldn't have a clue
i had a Novak 5300 in the car slow running seemed fast

Thats 5300Kv, at 7.2 volts its no load speed is 38000 RPM, the 3400 Kv is 24400 Rpm,
You need something around the 1000 Kv to 1500 Kv, that will give good slow speed as well as reasonable speed at full throttle
