    Default Pro Boat UL 19 Hydroplane + 1716 dasboata + Propeller shaft OSE

    Pro Boat UL 19 Hydroplane
    Propeller: 1716 dasboata
    Propeller shaft: OSE Heavy Duty upgraded ProBoat Ul-19 HD Cable
    100% Stock - Lipo Battery 2 X 3S 11.1v 5000mha 40C

    Unfortunately my GPS broke (it did not support water).
    Now I'm waiting to receive a new one, so I can not check the maximum speed.

    My guess is 52.3 mph. Why not hold full throttle in the turns?

    Hi Jesse J

    thanks for the comment.

    I'm still learning (I'm new to this hobby). Is it possible to make the curve at this speed in this boat?
    Another day, still with shaft and propeller stock, see what happened (boat crash).
    I live in Brazil and we do not have a competition club here or to exchange information.
    If you can help me with the correct driving I thank you.

    Welcome Marcos!

    Hydroplanes are made to turn at high speeds, rc boats turn right and race in a 1/6 mile oval course.
    Races are 6 laps and generally are done in 2 minutes or less and racers are at full throttle for most if not all the time.

    The water you are running in here in the second video is pretty rough for this hull type. Many of us have multiple hull types so we can run in any water condition.

    I couldn’t tell what you did after the wipe out, but it is good practice to bring in the boat and check to see that all is fine before going back out. A battery can come loose, or something else come loose and cause damage to the boat.

    Hi Jesse,

    thank you for the tips..
    The video of the accident was on a very day (water with waves and lots of wind)... it was not day for this boat.
    Are you sure this boat is possible to make the curve with maximum acceleration... + 50 miles...?Is it possible? I'm afraid to try...
    Do I have to change anything in the confuguration?

    thanks

    No need to change anything except in your trigger finger.
    Get some nice smooth water with less than 2” ripples and crank it over.
    It is such a rush you won’t turn slow ever again!
