No pics of the manta running had to get someone on the t.x for me to take cr*p pics of the jet stream & they nearly stuffed that !
So g*d knows what might of happened with the manta :-\  nearly twice as quick.

What fuse are you running with this set up as it is nearly the same as my Shadow.

Me again
Going to take the motor and e.s.c (brushless 3000kv 60amp e.s.c on 19v ) and try it in the jet stream.
I think it may work because the j/s is surfacedrive & lighter than the subdrive manta.
Any thoughts gents or just try it & see what happens.
p.s has anyone had dealings with a hydro rat hydroplane just got one @ a good price.

That should fine as both the manta and jet stream are about the same size, should go like stink if it works as the stock motor in a electric jet stream is only a geared 550.
