This bangka finally arrived
And its bigger than I thought
Its 51 inchess long from tip to the tip
But its light weight
Now im worried about the mfa500 motor I have picked up for this boat
if it has enough power to turn my 3inchess 3blade props

Hi guys

this boat came with a props and driveshaft
but I dont like it
The sleeves for the driveshaft is to short
Im thinking itll be essy for water to get in from there
So im going to picked up a driveshaft with big props


What motor and props would you use if you want your scale model to pull you on a kayak?
Using 12v 6ah battery?

You would have been better off sticking with the 800 motor which you were originally recommended. The 500 motor is completely unsuitable for a 3" prop unless it's coupled to a gearbox or belt drive of about 6:1. If you want more performance then the 850 motor will fit directly into the same engine mount and shaft coupling as the 800 but will take more current and therefore reduce the running time per charge.
I can't advise you on MTroniks speed controllers as I have never used one.

A lot of guys here are using the Mtroniks speed controls without any complaints.

Hi guys

I have decided to ditch that props that came with the boat
Its much easier for me to just get a new props driveshaft motor esc battery
I think I can use the 6v12ah battery on this boat









it perform well on the beach hahaha
One problem
is when the waves come from the front
Itll just splash all over the boat lol
I think I will need a styrene cover for the hull
