I have an aquacraft Motley crew I run on 4S. Its stock other than a metal prop (stock size and pitch). Its more than fast enough for me and I like it. But I just bought a spartan and am wondering, how are 4S speeds? Ive tried to find a decent video on youtube that illustrates stock 4S speeds but all the videos I find are either of modified boats or are from stupid angles that dont really give a good idea of how fast the boat actually is.
I only own 2S packs, thats why im sticking with 4S... im not going to go out and buy new 3S packs just to run in a boat every once and a while. So if its not fast enough, whats the answer? Higher KV motor or faster prop? I dont want heat problems. I can run my Motley Crew wide open all day and it never overheats. i like the simplicity of that. So whatever I end up with in the spartan I really just want it to be reliable and not suffer from heat issues.
Anyone have any experience they can share?
