Re: New guy, new to airboats

This is my opinion. But if ya don't care bout speed. These r my thoughts. Don't know ur budget either so here goes. Crate motors r relatively cheap. 2:38 gearbox. 3 blade prop. Find ya a 14 ft hull.

Re: NEED A LITTLE GPU HELP

Who wired it. I would make sure someone didn't try to put power to mag. Just a thought. Maybe they didn't know it always fires and u just ground it out.
