    Are you talking about an older 41" Fightercat Fantasm cat? That hull is similar hull to the TFL Zonda, and is long and narrow, and designed more for SAW passes. TFL has also recently released a 41" Cheetah that they call a Fightercat Cheetah. That hull is significantly wider and more suited for running ovals.

    I run a TP4060 1700kV motor on 6S in my 37" Genesis. It's shorter and a little narrower than your hull. With an ABC 1915 prop is does 90mph consistently for SAW passes only. The Fantasm has flat right pads and will turn better than the smaller, narrower Genesis. I'm not sure what kind of run time or speeds you're after, so you'll have to make adjustments from there. Most Fantasm and Zonda hulls are built as twins, so it will be harder to research other single motor builds.

    10000mAh is a good start, but won't get you the run times you want at those speeds. You don't really have the room for more battery capacity so you'll need to decide which is more important, run time or speed. Take all of these details back to your original thread. Fluid should be able to recommend a setup for you to get you close.
