In Sweden we don't race any electric (FE) boats at all. But we have an idea to test some power solutions to come up with a good new FE 4S class for hopefully the 2015 racing season.
This is our main ideas for the new class (so far):
- About the same size and speed as a normal FSR-H3.5 boat
- Able to race for the normal 6 race laps on the full FSR oval + some milling time with affordable 4S LiPo batteries
- Some sort of limit on the motor to prevent it from being too extreme
So what do you think - is this the right way to go? :)
Electric is nice and has a long stand time before riding again. Fuel power is much better, fill the tank and go ride. Much nicer.
Hi I use to run 3.5 riggers in the 90's, it became too expensive so gave it up. I've just started testing a 6s set up in one of my old tubs, she's a bit wild but cheap fun. Have come to the same conclusion a 4s is fine for circuit racing,I have started building with this in mind. Did think a shorter milling time would make sense, say a maximum time of 1 minute of mill time.
