I use the 50A birdy water cooled esc.
I have run the same motor in a 500mm home made Jetboat with the 50A Esc and it runs really well. Read the reviews on the esc before buying, I here many have had their esc burn out. However I have 2 that are still running realy good. I have tyed both 2 cell and 3 cell. 2 cell run better in a jet boat, but there is a hell more power on the 3.
hope this has helped.
This little motor really screams and would be a good motor for your boat. Just be careful fitting the cooling hoses. If you put too much pressure on the especially sideways they will snap. Try soaking your hose end in hot water before fitting. It will just slide on easily.
Im not sure about the NQD Jet, but i read some forum about it and saw there is someone using these motors on it..may be it suited/fitted the stock coupler since these BL motor has the smallest shaft diameter in the market as far as i know. Hope this help.
Hey sharim , i think i have esc issues it starts very fast and quits an then you hear the beeps as the motor or esc resetting it had a hk 30 amps esc do you think im falling short of amperage or i still have programming issues it does not quit while not under load
Hye Bryan, my esc behaved like yours too..my boat suddently stop like the Rx dosen't received any signal from the Tx and the motor beeping a lot..i tried with new Rx and even another Tx and still the same..may be this is the bad things about that esc..
The ESC could be cutting out due to overheating. Try increasing the water intake by fitting a transom intake. I've seen a piece of copper tubing and even a piece of carbon fiber pipe cut a 45 degrees and epoxied to the transom to pick up water. Run the two intakes through a T piece and always go through the ESC first then into the motor then over the side. Make sure you wire tie the hose fittings to stop blow out from pressure.
What then Sharim it keeps beeping will it ever ? When do I let go the trigger ? How do I know is ready ? I. Used to the old school electronics on rc sorry man thanks for the help by the way I'm in puerto Rico where r you give me your e mail so I can post a picture iPad won't let me post it here for some reason
Once you let go the trigger it will enter to the program options, this will be difficult..just change the 1st options only so that your esc can responded to all.. after the single tones let the trigger go and you will hear another tones, Then put ther trigger on Full Speed again after another single tones. THEN SWITCH off the TX
Sorry to hear that pal, anyway basic programming is using Tx/Controller..my steps as below:- 1- Connect your Motor to the Esc 2- Switch ON you Tx and put/push your trigger on FULL SPEED 3- Then Connect your Esc and Lipo together
Make sure your Trigger still at full speed after these 3 steps.. After that, you can hear programming tones..after 3 musical tones, there will be another tones (optional tones, 5/6 different tones) If i were you i will only change the 1st setting, which is Movement (forward and reverse options),
Sharim just got around installing everything on the miss geico 17 just got a couple of questions got a hk item number 9261000008 esc and bought an octura 427 prop , regarding the esc if you hit reverse I will keep running on reverse until you hit forward is this normal
Regarding the HK esc, i owned the 50A version and it's hard to understand the programming and i just change the running mode. Anyway, how did you programmed your esc? Make sure to use only 25% Reverse Force only.
Do not worry about the stock MG17 shaft..fyi i owned the MG 24" version and it has 3.17mm prop shaft..im sure the 17" version has the same or slightly smaller diameter too..if smaller, you just need to put shrink tube on the prop shaft for adaptor..Hope you get me..
I put it in a redbird hull from H&M with 2S LiFe and it go very fast. With a 2 lipo it can go more than 50 km/h ! The cooling is very effective an with a k29 the motor is cold. I have more than 10 min of run with 2300 LiFe. Je l'ais mis dans une coque de Redbird de H&M avec un pack de 2s Life et il va trs vite !! Avec un lipo je peu aller plus que 50 km/h. Le refroidissement est efficace. J'ai plus de 10 min d'autonomie avec un 2300 mA.
