    I would suggest OSE, which is offshoreelectrics. I bought my Octura X442 prop and aluminum cooling jacket from them, they will even sharpen & balance the prop if you need them too...for a fee of...

    IMO, I love my Octura X442 prop. Like said before, it is almost stock size but because its brass/aluminum there is no flexing. The stockish size also keeps the electrics from being strained.

    so I figured it out, a couple days before, the upper main shaft came loose and flew out of the heli. I reinstalled it, but It wasn't seated all the way down, so the gears weren't lining up right. ...

    IMO, the Spartan should only be run on Lipo's, the boat demands way too much current than the nickel batts can deliver. Like everyone else, I would recommend 2 2s packs with a high discharge rating...

    haha, thanks orca...I truly appreciate your expertise. I ran them last night, for about 15 mins and brought it in before it hit the cutoff, checked the cells when I got home and they were about 3.77...

    thanks guys, I really appreciate all the responses. I have balanced everything and ran it again last night, all the cells seem to be decreasing equally, so I'm going to just keep using them. They...

    Hey all

    Like the title says, Ive run mine a few times now with no problems...but lately as soon as I hit the throttle on take off, it sounds like something is "slipping" or making a squealing...

    hhhm, that is strange. When I go to charge these the cells are all really close, like within .01 -.02v of each other? I unplug them right away from the boat too, so they shouldn't have enough time...

  13. quick question about the castle ESC in my spartan

    I have a couple year old Spartan and got the castle motor/esc upgrade after the first style burnt. I was running my boat the last couple days with 2 3s 5000 packs, after running for a while it...
  14. I don't see why they wouldnt. All they will need...

    I don't see why they wouldnt. All they will need is the serial # from your boat. Seeing as the spartan hasn't even been out a year, I don't think it will matter if your the second owner. I believe...

    mine did the same thing, the motor would be at 165 after only a few mins of running. check your motor temp when it does it next time, i'll bet its over 160. If it is, just call traxxas and they...
  16. does your boat have the new castle version...

    does your boat have the new castle version electronics? If not, it might be the motor overheating, which in turn shuts down the ESC. If you have a temp sensor then you have the old style motor/esc...
