    Default My Miss Gieco 17 brushless Conversion .

    So I had picked up a Miss Gieco 17over the summer and was really disappointed with how slow it was. Did a a lot of reading on here and decided why not try this conversion. So I started picking up parts for the conversion.
    The list:
    2848 4 Pole BL Marine Motor 3000Kv (DYNM3898)
    30A Brushless Marine ESC 2-3S (DYNM3860)
    Rudder assy

    Flex drive 1/8:

    Also picked up a motor mount from OSC

    Gutted the Hull and started drilling holes. Sadly one of the rudder holes is off so I need to re-drill one of them. Mounted the Motor mount . Slowly making progress.

    Just pulled mine off the shelf the other day while cleaning up the shop. I gutted it a while back and hadn't decided what to do from there. I'm thinking about a pair of outrunner motors and a pair mini hydro struts mounted and a center mount rudder on the back. I need to figure out how I can mount the motors down in the sponsons without removing too much hull material with then requires re-imagination of the canopy situation. Definitely tight quarters. Good luck with your build!

    That's going to be a little monster. LOL . Yeah there isn't a lot of room inside the hull of this little boat . I'm struggling to get the screws back in to mount the rudder assembly. I've got some modeling clay to help hold the screws but it's still a pain.

    A couple more progress pics. Got to do some sanding now and was trying to figure out where to put the ESC.

    How about a couple steerable outdrives? You can get the ones on my geico mono in this subforum.

    So a quick question for everyone. Did the folks that Modified there Miss Gieco 17 with a brushless motor re-use the servo that cam with the boat or did you upgrade the servo too. If you upgraded the servo ,what did you use. Thanks for any help.
