Search YouTube for rc boat prop balancing and sharpening. I watched almost every video on YouTube, than bought a sharpened and balanced prop as a guide.

My next trial prop I'm going to try to detongue and maybe back cut it.

Also I'd suggest reading up. Head to offshoreelectrics.com and read read read. Understanding what cuts effect how a prop performs helps, as well as fully understanding how a prop works.

Thumbs down widowmaker

Advise, sell it. I haven't read or heard of anything good about it and parts are hard to find from reading OLD FORUMS.

Thats funny cuz all the stuff i have needed i have been able to get(esc, prop, plastic cover under lid)

But the only thing ive seen i cant get ive noticed was on ebay, but the only thing i noticed that could be an issue would be the whole boat or hull and if something happens to that it will be at the bottom of the lake or i'll just buy another/different boat and throw this stuff in it. Along with the SS prop has been on back order but thats an upgrade

TCC, the forums of old from posters complained of this and that. I first saw it and was about to buy it and cruised the forums and read and said my present boats were way better than that one. I have a 22" mono by the name of No Step 1 from Finedesignrc.com that has a Feigo motor on 2S with no trim tabs and a very good performer. Another boat from same sight is a UFO/HO 22" mono that I have 3 of them and they do 30 mph and are a great boat. I've had these for 6 years or more and still perform. I put a HK 2836-2700 outrunner on 3S with a 632 prop, all 3. I wish I could find the thread but don't remember. Try OSE -RCGroups search would be my guess.
