Snap Roll, dont do this at home Kiddies!
« on: October 04, 2016, 04:22:35 PM »

As the title says, yesterday, at our last show of the year, one of our members test ran a twin brushless set up on a 38" Motor torpedo Boat. With both motors running in the same direction, and in my humble opinion, to many of those pesky volts (11.1 to be precise.), as the speed increased, so did the models aversion to water! followed by a deep relationship with the deepest part of the pond!
All items flushed with fresh water and now bedded down with a nice bowl of rice...TBC...

oops !  we could all use some lh m5 props in varying sizes to test with , my spear can be a bit of a handful if being pushed hard amd shes on opposing rotation props . the nelson 40 has just eaten both esc following a rapid shut down from full speed ,which dumped the bow and got saly water over the foredeck , but it was running on 2 22.2 volt packs at the time !
