    Was it hooking at the start or wer you trying to turn that sharply?
    Was that full throttle?
    Did it get too hot and shut down?
    What size battery did you use and how much was left in it at the end?

    It was my first run with the boat. I had not yet dialed in rates so steering was super touchy. As for cutoff, it was due to radio range. It is a carbon/Aramid hull and I had yet to tidy up the antenna mast. The run was 6S Turnigy
    Graphene 4000 65C. Right about 3 minutes continuous WOT and I hit LVC @3.7V. The boat would be better served with more battery capacity but that was the biggest Graphene HK had in stock when I made the purchase.
    I made a dozen runs back to back through 4 batteries that day once I got everything sorted out and temps on motor and ESC never got above 98F. Batteries came in at ~115 but those temps dropped too once I got a couple cycles on them.
    The boat is currently spinning a 44mm prop. I plan to prop up.

    I managed about a dozen more runs after that video. The sharp turns were solely attributed to not having dialed down the rates on the TX.
    That said, the boat NAILED them at WOT without a hiccup. As for battery capacity... you could absolutely stuff 2 6S batteries in it BUT, you would lose the space to flotation at the expense of added weight.
    Your call...
    The boat can handle a MUCH bigger prop than that in the vid. It comes with a 42mm CNC and the builder stands behind use with a 48mm, 2 blade. Fact is, he backs a 50 provided you scale up, monitor temps and proceed within reason.
    The boat is a SOLID RTR package.

    If you don't want the baggage that comes with owning an OM.

    We have a couple DY and an OM in our club. It's a solid design. The DY won our clubs spec mono class by a ton of points this season.
