2306 x2000
note the shaft size goes to 3mm what prop does the boat have??
look at the spects the stab size is 8.75mm(part that goes to mount)

2211x2300
2mm shaft close to the same spec. you said the shaft was 2.3mm
can't find one that is close maybe they will stock later lots of spair
parts but no motor??

syhammer, you may wish to look at this one also.
TY-2730
it is faster than stock the air boat is a 400 size boat from what i have read. if you can drill it out easy some of these have a 10mm stab on them.i rewind the 2410& 2409 all the time realy just get it for the "kit" part and pull the windings. there is a shaft that will fit the 3mm and take it to 2.3mm (standard 400/370 can type motor size).it looks as if i will have to change to the TY motors as the towerpro and ty 24/09,10 have not restocked for some time now. the stock prop looks as if it had a press on mount for it with a cone??. you could use the 3mm with a standard prop.there is some one that is looking to up grade so IF you try any of thease please let all know how it comes out the motor i suggest are the cheep ones so that you don,t waste a lot of cash to try.

no that would be close to 30,000 rpm. 2 cell only @~ 12 amps you will be ok.not sure for the prop, all 5x5 are not the same.

if your looking for more power i would say.5x5 or 3 blade 5x4~5 on 3 cell.
stock ESC will not hold up on this.

Hi, I just bought a swamp dawg and although its a cheap boat I'm still dissapointed with the quality. The hull is so badly warped I can't use it and the motor won't even fit into the mount.

I replaced my swamp dawg motor with one from the axn floater jet. Fits right in and as a bonus uses three s power! Really flies on the water! You will need to upgrade you esc to something better, I used a haobbyking plush 40 amp and it works fine.
