    those temps on the 70 mph run looked kinda high ,i seen 190ish brush across the screen on the gun . i wouldnt run that prop for anything other then quick speed passes then bring it in .
    my cnc x440/3 does the same thing to my bj29v3 motor .

    That run was about 3 minutes after my first all stock run and I probably ran it too hard but I wanted to see what it would get and see how it handled. The rain was coming and I didn't have time to wait, so I went ahead and ran again. The motor was already around 125-130° when I started the 70mph run. The battery connectors were pretty hot as well after this run and were in the 180° range. I watched the video again and the motor was in the mid 160° range and the ESC was like 141° it was the connectors that were hottest in the 180°+ range. 3 or 4 passes with this prop on a SAW run is perfectly fine and the temps are in the 140°-145° degree range from my test with this prop and ESC combo in my Geico and the Veles..

    What battery connectors are you using?

    Thanks Travis! It has stock EC5's I pulled the cores and re-soldered them myself. Sometimes they just don't have enough solder on them for my liking. I had one come loose on my Impulse 31 last year.

    Man I'm not trying to tell you what to do but I highly recommend moving on from the ec5 connectors. I've had a couple unsolder on me and let me tell you I dodged a bullet. Imagine that grounding out. A lipo grounding out is pretty dangerous. I use castle green 6.5mm on all my stuff and I've never looked back. I've never had one come unsoldered on me. Shorten your power wires too while your at it. If you shorten each battery wire and esc wire that's 6" of wire gone.....makes a difference. You'll pick up speed and things will run cooler.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I might just do that. I'm not a fan of the connectors nearly touching the back of the motor either as they are. I know they're causing more heat in the motor by them being as close as they are to it. I'm probably going to relocate the ESC to another location and trim the wires accordingly.

    Man while your at it, put 6.5mm castle or 8mm (my preference) connectors on the motor. I've went from 6.5mm to 8mm and picked up about 2mph. Just my experience and advice.

    Hello Roman! I don't recommend trying for 70mph with this boat if you are new to the hobby because the 70mph setup can overheat your electronics quickly and some less experienced people don't realize it until it's too late. However 61mph is Awesome speed if you are using the stock prop.You mentioned you have the same set up I am using...Did dasboata prep your prop? If not then it will be difficult to hit 70mph without a professionally prepped abc 1716 prop. If you must try for 70mph you can contact dasboata on here and see what he can do for your prop or just ask to buy an abc 1716 prop from him and you will be all over 70mph (even with a bad setup). You will need to use a good brand of batteries like Gens Ace, Revo, or SMC packs and 70+ won't be an issue. With a good tune you should be near 80mph. This 70+mph setup I am telling you like I stated above will heat your electronics up pretty quick on 6s if you don't know how to run the boat efficient, so only run a few passes and check temps. You want to keep everything under 140°f. WARNING if you elect to run full throttle on the whole run you will burn your stuff up. Run a fast pass then a couple of slow passes to let the electronics cool. Good luck with it!

    Perfect!!! I already have the 1716 and yes I notice the problem even with 50c.

    Also I wouldn't run a good pro prepped prop with the stock flex cable either, because it has been known to just come apart or break at any time. You need one of these. https://www.offshoreelectrics.com/pr...se-veles-cable It looks like they are out of stock at the moment, but you can email them and they should be able to make one for you soon or just look up kfxguy on here because he makes them from time to time, just shoot him a message if you can't find one, but don't trust your good prop on the stock cable.
