Kyosho Jet Stream to leccy ?
« on: January 25, 2008, 01:49:34 PM »

Hi All
Got a jet stream 800s fitted with a gt 16-mr i.c motor.
Engine mount cracked up again ! & gears striped again >>:-(
Its a half decent hull runs & turns well.
So i was thinking converting her to leccy.
Ideas being 700bb or 850 m.f.a running on 14 cells.
Not expecting the same performance but close will do.
Any ideas ?

Speed 700BB sounds about right to me.
Also get a selection of propellers for testing.

You might have to replace the stub shaft in the strudder.

How much does your hull weight? Have you also read the other leccy convertion on this site that runs a 700BB.

The one I was on about was my SHG Shadow convertion on Sports,pleasure craft,speed,race etc in the our builds section. However if you do a search of the site you will find many topics on Graupner 700BB turbos also there are lots on different alternatives. O0
