Maby the shaft failed and caused the damage. I just installed a CNC prop and it happened right after the boat hit a wave and came out of the water.
Something happened and melted the stuffing tube then the brass tube got so hot it melted tray mounts off the wrecked the flex shaft b
Can I remove the plastic stuffing tube? I keep having the tube spin inside the brass tube.
Did you turn on the low volts setting
Also how would I go about measuring to make sure the rudder is straight?
Tq roll worse
Tq roll gone
I made the trim tabs a little shorter to see how that works out. So I measured everything as I always do but these are my measurements for test 1. I will adjust the trim tabs and strut accordingly. ...
It eliminated a lot of chime but I picked up more torque roll
I searched around on here an ose but didn't find anything. Has anyone tried making longer and wider trim tabs? If so what were the results good or bad?
I used clear silicone
Comes to find out he bought a pro boat 31. We were out yesterday with them and mine was running awesome(until lipos puffed) but he couldn't get his to stop porpoising.
Traxxas power cell 25c 11.1 3-cell 500ah part #2872
Ok so I was out running the boat making trim changes and what not and the lipos puffed. I've only ran the boat 3 times what would cause the lipos to puff?
What setup are you running?
Thanks. For all the help and responses.
Stock prop. I was talking to a guy at the local hobby store and he said I would gain 5mph if I switch to a metal prop.
Very true I plan on running the boat every day until we race. He didn't say what kind of race he wants to do but we are racing in a aqua range so there are some floating islands.
Me and my buddy are real competitive. I have a spartan vxl-6s with 3s lipos, 5in dual pickup rudder, alum water jacket,dual water outlet, splash guard, 69mm turn fins, and adjustable trim tabs....
Team21 I placed my order last night with kintec and I got a USPS tracking number today.
I bought mine from ose along with the splash guard
Ose is more expensive
What's the best way to install the kintec rudder?
Rob the pickup is water in. You need something like "Standard Size Water Outlet machined aluminum with nut and o-ring"
I'm going to place an order with kintec so far
1. 5" rudder with dual pickup.
2. 69mm turn fins
5.foam seal tape
Anything else I may need?
