    He ran the bigger prop because he used a 1800kv motor since the 2000kv motors were not ready yet.

    It says in the information that it comes with a 1.7 (43.18mm) X 1.6 Pitch and if you look closely at the pictures it looks like a 17 degree rake prop.

    So it would be very close to a ABC 1716 - 17-45/2 which is a 17 degree rake prop,

    People need to stop upgrading the boat before they even have one. You may find that it's pretty well equipped out of the box.

    Do a proper sharpening, perhaps a little thinning, and balance the stock prop. I think you'll be surprised. From there, getting more speed is relatively easy, especially with the selection of ABCs available.

    that is why I asked. not all of us have access to people in their area who balance and sharpen props.

    You don't need access to anything other than YouTube to resolve that. Go do a search on "Balance RC Boat Prop". There are tons of videos there explaining the process.

    If you want to buy prepped ABC Props, you're best bet in my opinion is Brian Buaas: brain@raptorrc.com

    If I were starting out with something other than the stock prop, on 4S, I'd probably get myself an ABC 1716-17-45(2). Whether that's "ideal" or not remains to be seen. Boats need to get here first.

    Also, keep in mind... I'm NEVER going to attempt to recommend a prop that'll give you the "best speed". Maybe I can make it work, but maybe you can't. It's not as simple as just bolting a pinion gear into an RC Car. If I suggest a prop, and you end up burning up a power system, then I'm the bad guy, because you did everything "just right" and it was my prop recommendation that was the problem.

    So, the props I would recommend are for "normal" sporty running. If you want to race GPS readouts, you'll have to build up your prop inventory from there.

    Sorry, just being prudent, based on past experience.

    Just wanted to know what aftermarket prop with similar specs as the factory one would suffice. I would rather just buy a sharpened and balanced prop than try and balance one myself.

    Nobody knows yet what all the factory specs are, all they know at this time is that it is 1.7" Dia and a 1.6 pitch.
    It does look like it has some Rake to it, could be 15, 16, 17, Degrees, or just a 10 degree prop with some Backcut.

    We will have to wait until either the factory releases more on the specs or until someone gets a factory prop in hand, that knows how to measure it.

    If you want one completely Balanced and Sharpened, Buy one and give it to the person that you want to do the work.

    With the 2000KV motor, as I stated above, this is a solid place to start and I think you'll find that it performs VERY well.

    I wasn't involved in it at all, Ray - and didn't even know about it until I saw the release! Rafael didn't know me or that I'd be interested. Now I have to rethink my pulling for getting Darin on the Spektrum Team ... :D :D

    I'm planning on getting one (already working on it) myself. I was going to laser cut a scaled-up UL-125 to 30" this summer anyway - this just saved me some time.

    Other than the rather generic UL styling, I don't see this hull being that similar to these others. Of course there are some standard racing hull geometry and features, like the sponson cutouts, etc., but otherwise what it is is a concept that Rafael and myself sat down and sketched out, based on the current crop of GP boats... my concerns was regarding the geometry and performance, and Rafael did all the styling, layout, graphics, and fought the good fight to get it into Production.

    If it resembles the AQ UL-1 in any way, it's because that boat was designed after the same idea...

    My buudy got one! There in stock in oakdale, CA right now.. I am mad at HH right now or I would buy one for sure. My buddy took it out of the package and tossed two traxxas 3s 500mahs, its fast with no anything! We learn really quick that you cant come on the throttle fast or it try's to sub, will run again with lighter packs this weekend. New to hydros but I think its semi common(the throttle)? Once on a plane its fast and rides on rails! no gps # but it was running fast. Great boat, will buy one soon as I find it used so my money doesn't go to HH. I didn't post up the video but I have a couple on my cell phone.
