The 540 motor also controls the direction of the boat making it turn quickly without losing speed. The boat is constructed with fiberglass and immaculately painted and finished in a high-gloss gel-coat for improved glide and a glass finish!
You just need a 2~3S lipo and your own RX to power up this boat.

no parts for out board switching to tfl outboard more relyable

I now have two of F1 Hornets and both have been made to self right and they are great value for money. One is running the standerd set up from the box and one has a thunder tiger out board fitted. We now race then with the other mono's in our group without panicking of flipping. Anyone with rc experience should be able to sort it out. I have a video on you tube and also on my face book page , I will try to answer any questions on the face book page or the website, thanks HK.Face Book page is JMBC jerseymodelboats or join jerseymodelboats**** and join the forum. Cheers all Lance Gallichan

what is the warranty on the electric motor in the hornet out board mine stopped workink after approx 4 hrs running a 3s 4400 lipo ?

also found that moving the motor mount down 5mm more it does not cavertate as much and have the battery far forword as possible
 Ritesedfred 19 points
By moving the strut down so far you will force the nose of the boat up. This may cause the bow to lift when underway. Moving the battery forward to compensate may help things but 5mm does seem to be a little excessive. Have you tried the boat out since making the change?

Sorry, I forgot it was outboard. The angle of the prop will cause the bow to rise or fall, not the depth of the prop. Please forgive my mistake.

Great boat , hull thin,light ,strong.The outboard made from plastic with flex drive and 4mm shaft and 2 bearing .The esc heat too fast cause it draw to much amp. The prop is might be too big. If not reduced the prop size or just go with a turnigy 120a esc , it could run on 11.1-14.8v ,with out worry.It handle very good but the servo is kind of weak and noisy.Servo need more torque if you wanted to mod it.I had put Ammo brushless motor on stock outboard with 120a turnigy esc,lipo 14.8v and octura x640. It's flying and needs more weight in the front and adjusted the AOA

Hi! I'm The3PK. Just received hornet today it more valuable comparing to the price. Outboard is brushless size 380L, it's not 540 size but fast enough when used 3 cell lipo. The weakest point is water proof of esc isnot 100 sealed. I change prop to octura 3 blade 3/437 (Diameter 37 mm. Pitch 1.4) speed improved fascinating. The next run I try to setting outboard angle and lift it up a little bit for more stable while running in the water. Thank you the hobbyking to bring this stuff in your store and hope you are spare part to supply soon.
