    Default Batteries either side of the motor.

    Here is how I have put the batteries either side of the motor using some balsa wood, doesn't look the best but it does the job. Now I have loads of scope to move the batteries back and forth for the best cog. I haven't tried it out yet but in the bath it sits in the water very evenly. My last p1 was rear heavy with the batteries at the back.

    Hi,
    I took the wood out and put the cells strapped to the floor,
    So I can do the same think, But just lower cog.
    Also moved the servo to center of hull,
    I am thinking to offset the rudder to, Still not sure if I should.

    First time out a little to wet,
    My temps were a little high after 4 min runs on 4s2p,
    But the prop that came with the boat was a x640 and I just looked at it good and it is not s&b right.
    So I have a s&b m440 and a s215 that I will try today and see if temps get better.
    I would like to make this link a mod thread so we can look in one place for stuff to do.
    I am going to try and move all mine post to that link.
    Hear the link on it,https://forums.offshoreelectrics.com/...-offset-rudder.
