Default Blackjack 26

Finally I rounded up the rest of the parts I needed to start my build. I can't believe how much it cost just for the running gear. I'm almost a $100 into it already and no electronics included. Hope it's worth it . Anyone have any input on this hull ? I have a proboat 60amp esc for it. Can't decide 1500kv aquacraft or 1800 proboat motor . Then it's time to start props. Ohhh makes my brain hurt. She's at the paint shop hope she turns out nice.

What voltage are you doing to run rod? I'd think the 1800kv and 60a esc would be good in that boat on 4s with an x642

What kind of hardware did you get? I personally like the 1500 pb motors. I would at least get the ss version of the stock prop.

I did get the ss because this boat is an ss. I just got the stock hardware. Not sure if I'll keep it. Lol.

Nice hardware. The stock is about 1/2 that and right now I gotta budget so I can get some nice new batteries.

Battery trays still in it but radio box is gone. I did just pick one up though. I was going to go stock with it first then start to modify. Except electronics of course. Will either be 1500kv or 1800kv aquacraft motor and probably a 60 amp proboat esc . For now.

Painting is going slow. But it's at least white now. Gotta dig through my sticker collection and see what I can find for decals.
