I've got the new Pro Boat Widow Maker. It runs fairly well stock but of course we all know there's mods to do. I'm new to electrics. I want this thing to be stupid fast. Pro Boat runs a 30A 5.6V - 12.5V ESC. They say i can only run 1 2C Lipo. 2C Lipo are only 7.4V. 3C Lipo are only 11.1V correct? Why could i not run one of those. It would have to be a lower mAh?? I dunno. I'd like to run 2 batteries, i know i could make it fit. Is it just a matter of switching out ESC's? Any help would be great.

the Widow Maker is a 22in deep v mono, not very big. It has a 2900kv motor already, i'm not sure what that means but have been told that that's a fairly good size one. i first need ot find or turn an ESC into one that can accept 2 batteries.
I'm running an 8000mAh 2C LiPo now. Can i not use the same motor and use a different ESC?

yes you can use that motor w/ new esc and read your specks for volts
if it can handle 14.8 then
seperate your plug and run another black in between
so you have to get another plug
on the black out of esc you put neg
and the spare black goes pos
other end goes neg to pos on esc.

alrighty then. i can not find specs on this engine so i'm not sure what i can push through it even if i could get a new ESC and put a 3-4c lipo in it i'd be happy. That would have to put more giddy up in it would it not

i was looking at the UL-1 specs. What kind of speed were you getting from her with the stock set up? I can get that ESC for like $70.

hydra 120 good
hydra 240 best
but match your batts when buying esc's
then buy a motor to match esc
the more ya look the beter deals
neu motors at castle creations 1515 can handle 27 volts
thats what i need BUT 1527 is a super motor so see how quick we get

hydra 120 here....close to $200. i don't need crazy assed speed for this thing as it's super hard to keep runnin the way it's set up now. i'd like to see mid to high 40's. The boat is quite small (22in) so i don't think pushing the most allowable power through it would do anything but make it impossible to run. i just want to bump up the power with the motor i have in it now but PB says i can only push a 2C lipo through the esc. tryin to keep the budget on this boat as low as possible and use what i can in it already.

my 7.4V 8000mah lipos are 20C, i don't see the amps on them anywhere. I'm only going to run 1 batt through the boat, it's tough to find the room for the second. So i'm gonna shoot for something around 3S with 25-35C.
