Haven't been following football much this season until recent. I see the Steelers are killing it this year ! If they end up playing the Chiefs,, I hope they put a ''big'' woop'n on Mahones. They lucked out beating my Raiders, that was a real good game though, Sunday night in Vegas. It's funny that the Chiefs got most the penalties & played dirtier. ''That's a switch''. LOL.

No reply's or likes ?? What's going on Guys??

''Note'' :,,
ended up with a 6.1 - 1 gear ratio on the 48v Mini.
10t on the motor & 61t on the rear.

Got it all buttoned up & took it for a couple of ''chilly'' shake down rides. ''It flies'' !! Not as quick as my ''Purple haze'' GX-200 Mini,, but every bit as fast. AUW is only around 75lbs!

Am making the frame // batt. housing work,, out of ''very stout'' 3/32 aluminum.
The packs will set in the upper part, with the length of the batt. tray being 11 inches.
It's ''a lot'' of work with out having a press brake, & having to clamp it all to the end of a bench,, & use ''lot's'' of map gas heat, & elbow grease, to get the bends bent & dollied down correctly.

New project in the works for a Guy. Brushless 48v 1800w electric, powered by 2 -13s 3p Li-ion packs that are run in parallel.
Each pack has 39 18650 cells, with each pack also having a ''BMS'' protection/balancing circuit board.
Ah rating for each pack is supposedly 32 ah ea !
Hooking both packs up in parallel,, the Ah rating doubles to 64 Ah.
Full charge voltage for ea. pack is around 56v.

I74 Added,, hit my limit on the first post for words. Anyway,, with the ''hi volt'' ect. systems,, I run XT-90 ''anti spark'' connectors for the power leads, & for the ''in line'' fuse leads. The anti spark conns. have a resistor between the + connectors,, so that when you plug them in,, the resistor absorbs & takes care of the initial ''spark flash''. Gearing is going to start @ 6.3 -1, with a 10t... Show more 2 months ago

Have always had a love for Hydro's, & had them off & on since the late 80's, of various sorts.
Been looking for one of these little guys for over 1/2 a year, as they were discontinued 5 years ago. It's 18 in. long, & has a 2200kv motor & 30a water cooled ESC. AUW is right around a lb., with the 3s 1000ma lipo. Did a bunch of mods to it, & it cruise's smooth @ about 1/3 thrott. going 30+. - feeling cool

I74 Added,, Giving it more thrott. & getting up in the mid 30mph+ range, it starts chine walking pretty good, & want's to take off the water. That prop under load is spinning over 25k rpm's, & the power set up is actually overkill. I have had to ''detune'' the ride set up , just to get it to settle down.. Run time is around 4min. with the Zippy 3s 1000ma 25c packs. It's ''super smooth @ the 30mph... Show more 2 months ago
