    Default MHZ Mystic 1380mm build

    Hello Everyone,
    I thought I would start this thread as I have the Carbon/Kevlar 1380mm 54" MHZ Mystic on order including hardware. Should be here next week or so.

    The plan is to keep this one on a semi budget but make use of my Lehners (2250/5 D on 5s) or (2250/8.5 Wye on 8s) May be a bit on the short side but I'm not looking for TOP speed at the moment 130-150km/h. I would rather spend the time to get a nice build and paint job, and ofcause have some fun on the big lake.

    I havent desided on a theme yet, but I quite like the Lehner colours for the inside of the hull (black purple & chrome) so lots of carbon, anodized aluminium & polished steel.

    If anyone have any ideas, please share so we can all learn something.

    Do you have the drives yet? The new click drives are really nice! Similar to Christians drives on his turbine HPR.

    What exactly does this mini antenna do? I've seen these on some boats while I've also seen a really short antenna tube. For the spectrum MR200/MR3000, the exposed antenna wire is only like 3" long if that.

    It does the same thing, just a clean and removable external antenna mount that will extend the range. A must for carbon hulls.

    It's got a washer with a eye to attach the rx antenna to the external antenna lower shaft that attaches to the hull.

    So your Rx wire itself remains in the hull or is it threaded through the loops on this MHZ antenna?

    The rx wire stays in the hull and the external antenna with the loops is what is removable after running/storage.

    Hi

    Do you use this kind of antenna with a 2,4 ghz radio ?
    - I thought that was a bad idear.

    I use this with my 40 mhz radio. And it's realy good and comfy.

    Best regards Henrik

    Ok, back to the real world again. Just looking at propshop's site. where would you guys start?
    I'm going to give up on the traditional x447 for a hull this size.

    5017/2 - 5517/2 or in the 60's ?

    I think I'm hooked on the 8s setup motor is around 1380kv in wye mode

    I would think something in the 55 range should be appropriate.Should have some choices there.Fightercat has 5518's
    Mind you with 1380kv on 8s that is some RPM.50's or 52's then.

    I would ever only build what I can fit on the back seat LOL. RPM wise I'll be in the 37k on 8s so it should pull a 50' something prop. 140km/h would be nice.
