Guys will this fit in the stock Thunder tiger desperado motor mount? How much faster will the boat be on 3s compared to the stock motor and what would be a good esc to pair with this for the thunder tiger depserado jr. Also what is the best prop to run with this?
I installed this motor into the Centurion mini 450mm. I used a 35 amp ESC and a 32mm prop. The ESC I'm using came out of a plane, I fitted a water jacket from the original ESC. On 3s it's over the top. Too fast. On 2s it's awesome, it's right on the edge of controle at full speed. Everything nice and cool after running with either battery.
I just bought ads 400 birdie 70 amp esc and zippy 5000 3s lipo for my impulse 26. Hooked it all up and all I get is clicking noise from the motor when I pull the trigger. The prop doesnot move. The steering works. I am new to this any suggestions would be appreciated.
Turn on the transmitter, hold throttle on full, then plug in ESC. After the first set of beeps, set the throttle to neutral, then after the next set of beeps, the throttle range is set. If the ESC starts to beep first once, then twice , then 3, 4,5 etc, you are in program mode, DON'T MOVE THE THROTTLE and unplug the ESC. Sorry that's all the advise I can give. Programming depends on the ECS.
I take it you have the HK 50amp boat controller,if so then best to buy the correct programming card SKU: 9261000011 and if it was me I would use the following settings to start with* Running mode, forward/reverse (cannot see a reason for brake on a boat). Acceleration, 6%. Low voltage cut-off, 3.00 or 3.2v. Start mode(punch), level 1 or 2. Reverse force, 25% or 50% at most otherwise you will sink the boat going too fast backwards. Timing, 15 degrees or a bit more as it is a high revving motor or you could use auto.
My speed control allows you to select several different timing settings.
what setting would be best for this motor, on a 2S LiPo in the outboard unit on my Hobby King Hornet tunnel Hull boat?
You mean 500 heli outrunner motor! Much better if they produce 500 or 600 version water cooled, 5mm shaft, 4s-6s lipo capable and around 1800kv- 2200kv. And please don't put aluminum water nipple cause it easy to break like your 300 and 400 version.. Much better if you put 4mm-5mm brass water nipple..
After buying one of these type of motors it is indeed a filter. Its just a small piece of screen. I didnt use it. The opening in the water pickup is filter enough.
Nice strong engine. Put it into my small bolt with the 60A MARINE ESC an a 3s 2200 mah 25C using a octura 430.
Fits with light modification. Ultra fast setup engine temp about 30-40°C and a runtime of 8-10 min in average. Tighten the waterinlet only by hand or it will brake.

im using this motor in my tear into jet boat, goes great but does have a stutter on start up but once its goin its good on 2 or 3s had the amp meter on it on 3s and pulled 52 amps 564 watts, using the 50 amp watercooled birdie esc. very light weight for the power. only slightly slower than my other boat with the 3900kv watercooled inrunner and 100grams lighter. 4 stars because of the stutter. will try and post vid.

i bought this motor and there is a leakage (not at those nipple but at the body of the water cooled thing) that make my motor smooking... so your faith with these motor depends on production quality .. tq.

Nice motor, lots of power. No problems with leakage and it runs cool. I used this to upgrade my Impulse 26 to brushless. I dropped this in with a Birdie 70A boat ESC and a 3S 2500mAh battery and WOW! It's a rocket!
