Thread: Venom rc boat with brushless motor park puddle

    Default Venom rc boat with brushless motor park puddle

    Love my park after rain makes some fun puddles with trees and lots of water.

    Upgraded my cheap venom boat with 2300kv drone motor, 10amp esc from a broken drone and 3s 1050mah battery got good 30 min run out of it.

    Does it still self right? I've got a Venom that my kids have outgrown and Dad always needs a new project! Can you post a picture of the inside with the new parts installed?

    This run it did not because I placed 3s in the front of the boat, this was my 1st run I just placed the battery above the motor inside the cabin and it fits perfectly. Will go in a few again and test if it will self right. Boat is 60 grams lighter than stock and way way faster. I have two one has a brushed motor upgrade faster than stock buy a few miles I'll run them against each other to see how much faster this one is. I like this boat more than any boat I own because how cheap, reliable, strong and agile it is. I was surprised that after 30 minute run motor and esc got berally warm with out any water cooling.
    Because I didn't want to waste any money upgrading this I used spare parts from a drone the 2300kv motor fits perfectly in to original motor mount if it gets pushed back a little, entire nose is empty space now perfect for a flotation foam.

    Ok I was able to make it self righting again by pacing battery closer to the hull wall offsetting the balance. It's a bit nose heavy but under full throttle it stays well above water.

    Because the battery is up front the boat get off the line slow and fills up with water even if I have tape all around, need to find better solution to water proof it maybe the hatch tighter. When water fills up the boat no longer uprights.
    Here is a video of a little race at the puddle brushed boat has upgraded brushed motor and is faster than stock.

    I was able to fit everything back in original places think self righting should work perfectly now.

    Taking out these boats against my stock atomik barb wire lets see what happens in straight line.

    ran it against my stock barb wire and off the line it puts good 20 feet on barb, because barb takes a while to get out of the water, full out throttle its about 5mph slower but its is extremely stable.

    Armattan 2822/12 1800kv is not doing well in the boat, its very slow and loud and vibration is crazy, ill take my chances with not fliping the boat over, switching back to Emax 2390289

    I have one of these Venom model UDI001 boats. Does the Emax 2390289 motor fit in the stock motor mount?
