Über mich

Mein Bild
Willkommen auf meinem Blog! Ich heisse Kai, bin Baujahr 1974 und hier geht es um mein Hobby: RC (radio control), also ferngesteuerte Modelle, hauptsächlich Autos und Boote im Elektrobereich. Meine Leidenschaft für RC begann 1981 und endete zunächst 1990. Dann habe ich 2004 mein altes Hobby wiederentdeckt und seitdem begleitet es mich mal mehr mal weniger häufig durchs Leben.

Systems setup changes

I made some changes to the setup of the Systems. It's now running a 3660 size 1480kV Leopard motor powered by 5s lipo and a 39mm prop. The increased voltage/less kV makes the Amps go down resulting in less stress on the the electrics. As I'm still running a lot on half speed I added some big capacitors to the speedo to make it stay cool. The boat can also be run @ 6s Lipo, but that's overkill again for such an oldie. More pics of the test run here.


  1. Hi,

    very nice. How did you fix the motor to the boat ? Can you give the reference to the stuff to do the same ? I ve a old systems with hydro speed 606 but the gearbox is broken so maybe I could upgrade it.


  2. Hi, thanks. The motor mount is this one here

    the entire hull is strenghtened with fibre glass and the motor mount is glued to the hull.
