Double horse 7000
« on: May 18, 2014, 08:24:53 PM »

Just getting into rc boating from rc planes. I've bought a cheap boat to see if it grabs me then it's a tunnel hull F1 without doubt.
Anyone had any experience with these boats?

Good boat verging on great straight from the box. Fast, nice handling hull with "proper" contra-rotating twin set-up, powerful enough 380 motors and decent props, tubes and shafts...and a good candidate for easy conversion to proper proportional radio/higher capacity battery when budget allows/fitting of proper servo controlled rudder(s)/even brushless motors if you are feeling adventurous!

Says him who STILL has one in the workshop undergoing the first 3 stages above  :embarrassed:

Ah! I bought 2 of them too.
They used to be called Century or Victory, I'll look it up when I get home.

I have a Futaba skysport 6 radio setup "40mhz" and also a Spektrum 6 "2.4"so I don't have to struggle with paying for uprated gear.

Converting one of these to brushless would be interesting.
Replacing 28mm would be straight replacement(800watts total from the two motors max.)
 2200-3700Kv on 2S or 3S batteries.
2650mah 3s 40C is about the same size and weight as the NiCad pack
You would require two ESC's and a v tail mixer (Turnigy V-Tail Mixer( code TR-V-Tail)to link them to one channel.
Your props look like 35mm x 1.4 pitch the same as on my Venom Killer Vee.
