Default HELP - modifying boat

Hey guys,

This is my first post on here and first ever attempt at putting together an RC boat.

I purchased a micro 7009 dash RC (which I am unable to leave a link for, sorry) from a local shop, it's a super cheap boat but I had a great time with it and it seems to be perfect for the small lake I use it in because of its ability to turn so sharply.

Although, within the first couple of times using it the speed controller/receiver which come all in one cheap little plastic box seems to have fried. So I sent it back for a replacement and within 20 minutes of the second one being in the water the same thing happened.

So my plan is to keep the boats hull and anything else that might be useful with it but purchase a motor/esc or whatever it might need. I'd love for it to be as fast as it was or even a little faster but I obviously don't want to spend too much. I'd happily spend up to $100 if need be but anything less would be a bonus.

So basically, if I could get some suggestions on what I need or any recommendations on a motor, esc, servo to actually make this happen I would be very appreciative.

Cheers

Im after some advice on my boat setup, I would like to know if what im running is all compatible or if I will just burn something out.

Here is my setup along with the specs:

Boourns.. thats overkill.. ur boat came with a370 brushed motor in the 1800kv range..with a 650 mah nimh 7.4v..
and you cooked 2 sets of esc in 2 runs.. it says ur boat is good for 6-8 minute runs not 20 thats why ur cooking ur electronics..

a 2200mah 2 cell lipo is alot of weight for a 15" boat.. also the 4800kv motor with stock prop is also way way to much stick with a 1800-2350 kv.. and shorten ur run time to 9 minutes max..
a 15 amp or even a 25 amp esc will be good..

what you plan on putting in this boat will bring you great joy and alot of fire and money going to bottom of ur POND..

Im a Certified Marine Mechanic on Real full size boats ..sorry to dis u but . WAKEUP thats not gonna work..smoke fire . sinking.. yippy..LOL..

My second post regarding the specs and compatibility was of no relation to my first post, I have that boat running beautifully with a completely different hardware setup.

I am modifying an NQD jet boat with a lot more room for my electronics, hence the large battery.

Thanks for the response and I should have been a little more clear on which boat this was for.
I guess now you can relax hpikillr! Sheesh

The receiver/transmitter is a cheap Flysky fs-gt2 2.4ghz
and I have a Turnigy 9g high speed servo for the jet boat also.

Haha... A mess of parts? All of these items are pretty much made for each other mate and it runs perfectly. I can post some photos if that would put you at ease?

I should have said it was for a different boat but that was not my question in the second post, I simply asked if those PARTS in bold writing would work together and I clearly state that the prop is a jet drive unit.

Nice little upside down joke. Douche.

The boat modification is very careful process for keeping it balance.
It require some experience and technical staff to modifying.
