    Default Blackjack 29 V3: opinions, thoughts, etc?

    Just saw some for sale on fleabay, new graphics, new/faster motor, higher amp ESC. Anyone have one? How does it compare to V1 or V2?

    3-up: Horizon tried to use pixie dust as a coupler and it wouldn't work. This coupler is door #2.

    Check connection to your receiver. Should be in channel1. Other than a bad servo you have a bad rx. Does the motor power up correctly?

    The esc looks like a sk120 v3 but has a better cooler. Be good if the sk180 v3 had the same style of cooler.

    Thanks for the info. It came with a Spektrum S603 servo which they no longer make. All hookups are OK. Replaced the receiver with a Tactic just to check and the servo still malfunctioned. I am assuming it is a bad servo. The motor powered up just fine. Thanks again.

    Sometimes they are plugged in backwards.

    I bought a Geico from Ebay once that said the esc and RX did not work but, it was plugged in backwards. With servo's sometimes this fries the Rx.

    If the servo is bad, just get another one, doesn't have to be from Horizon, and it is not that hard to replace on the boat.
    If the polarity is reversed, it might damage the rx( receiver). Although I find this to be rare, still, it happens.

    this boat is my work horse, I have it for a while now and its just like the energizer bunny keeps going ang going. Electronics, the esc is a seaking 120a and the 2000kv brushless motor just works with no hick ups, upgrades i did was an additional water pick up, additional aeromarine water outlets, ose shaft waterproof servo. also me and my son run this thing on 6s all day long. we are very please to say the least!!!
