Bought a villain in excellent shape a few years ago for 100$. Never used it or powered it up and threw it in a closet.
Just dug er out. I need help fidiggerrin' it out.
And all these spare parts.
It's all there, as far as I know.
How much voltage can the ESC handle? I have very few NiMH packs in good shape left, and no pairs. Can it run off of a 3s or 4s pack you think? It was designed for 14.4 volts.
Is trim adjustable?
Anything I need to check?
I'm assuming I need to shoot a little grease in the grease fittings behind the motors, and float her for a few minutes while I watch for leaks at any thru-hull fittings.
What sort of speed should I expect from this ol' girl?
Also, the little bung (or whatever you call it) in the cap that is threaded and looks like it accepts an antenna is there, but I have nothing to screw into it. Will I need to do something about that, or invest in a 2.4ghz system for it?
