boats r so much better, seeing the rooster tail and all. i always run my boat, and like never run my car.
09-06-2001, 05:52 PM
i would get a boat for sure if i lived near the water (pools are to small). i would have to have my trucks too though. i think a boot would be SWEET if i lived near a body of water.
i would probably run my boat more than my truck if i were near the water too.

I dunno, ive had both and ended up selling my boat for money for my truck. I like my trucks the best.
09-07-2001, 07:09 PM
i've said it several times before: you can't really compare boats and trucks. i personally like running my boats better though. you can't say one is better than the other. it's just personal preference.

i have three boats at the current time. a blast, a villain, and a kyosho jetstream 800. the villain and the jetstream are both modified while the blast is stock. the villain has water cooling and octura props and shafts while the jetstream has a novak super rooster esc and a 15 turn motor.

Which do you like better, the Villian IV or the Jetstream 800?
12-04-2001, 04:10 PM

I have enjoyed my Villain, Blast, Nitro Vee, E-Maxx and Nitro 4Tec so much that it is hard to think of one being my favorite. If it were not so much trouble to drive up to the flying site in Montgomery County, MD, I'm sure I'd see use of my Airtronics 2-meter electric Eclipse and Sagitta 900 sailplane, too. There is a satisfaction to the R/C sport in general that is hard to define, though for me it might include the vicarious thrill of imagining one's self actually operating a vehicle with such lack of abandon.

e-maxx is way better than any ped no afence. i also love my villian. i go to the lake to the lake of the ozarks so i get allot of use of my boat.:cool: :rolleyes: :mad: :p ;) :D :) :( :confused: :eek:
01-22-2002, 06:43 PM
Where do u race ur villain?, i have a 34 mph blast thats super modified and a nitro vee, i live in 6 mile cove formerly known as millionairs cove, and the old old party cove(original party cove) please let me know cuz i know 4 guys that have villains down there we can have some serius competition i also race sea doos -Ja
01-22-2002, 07:41 PM
i find a 34 mph blast a little unbelievable......what setup do you run. a boat like that cant handle the higher speeds and still stay upright......but maybe
i race boats and i have never seen a blast go anywhere very quickly
01-24-2002, 02:49 PM
Blast will go airborne far before 34 MPH. My Villain (which weighs twice as much) is mostly airborne at 33 MPH.
01-24-2002, 10:07 PM
i dont have a boat but Its on my list of rcs to get
01-28-2002, 11:05 AM
I use my Villain to get away from my cars (and trucks).
Cars are cool, but after awhile they can get a little old. So I got a boat. Play with it every now and then. Now when I go back to my cars, its a nice refreshing experiece all over again. :)
01-30-2002, 05:54 PM
well thats what teh radar gun reads 34.4 Mph runin astroflight equipment and fullers fast elctric outdrive hardware all modified besides hull, and guess what i got it all for free dirty, yes last weekend she did a triple backflip and the funny thing is it landed right side up and kept going, everything still works i have to practicaly idle though in the turns cuz it spins out so bad. -Ja
01-30-2002, 06:00 PM
what motor and batteries?
02-08-2002, 10:26 PM
GET AN E-MAXX THEY ARE SOOOOOOOO COOOOOL!!!!!!!!!!:D :cool: :cool: :cool:
02-09-2002, 10:13 PM
I once had my blast rigged doin'28 and it was verrry unstable. I don't know how one could do 35mph. you would have to have ALOT of weight in the front to keep it down because it want's to bounce up.
02-10-2002, 12:59 AM
Maybe some type of high down force wing like the ones used on cars. A front spoiler perhaps?
02-10-2002, 10:23 AM
Yes i do have weights in the front before i had put in a 16 turn with the same esc and a new prop, but u are completly right the boat wanted to just flip backwards like i said beofre she did do a tripple backflip i have solved this problem by in the middlfe front of the boat i have attached solid weights to the middle to the end of the battery holder, and now shes fine, i also put trim tabs on her and this baby flys its crazy seein this little boat beat my Nitro Vee, but im workin on that -Ja oh when i said 16 turn that was before the astroflight cobalt motor and astroflight esc, i was still testin out different combos -Ja.

By using weights, your making the boat heavier, and slowing it down in the process.
A wing on the other hand adds little solid weight, and *pushes* down as the wind resistance gets higher.
Makes more sense to me. The angle and placement of the wing would be critical though. Idealy you'd set up a 3rd channel so you could adjust the wing while the boat is moving, to fid the ideal angle, but an expensive ultra high torque servo would be required. And waterproofing it is another problem.
You should also add a small keel under the boat, somewhere near the middle of the hull to help keep it straight, and add some turning stability.
