Results 1 to 22 of Spartan on 3S Venom mah. The boat just screams, only problem is you need about 3 sets of batteries and some time time in between to let the motor cool down. Permagrin Batteries were warm to the touch and I couldn't tell how hot the motor was because I definitely couldn't keep my finger on it, lol I ran out of juice before the motor or ESC went into thermal protection so that was good.

I thought I got some great footage on the GoPro but come to find out the disk wasn't formatted so Best dating sites in the usa Spartan Motors: Problem Solving Report (4 Minutes) will try again tomorrow. The boat was a little squirly at top speed so I have to adjust the position of the camera a bit, i had the batteries all the way forward too. Hey Film, The Octura XR is pretty much the same uas the stock prop but should perform a little better due to the stiffer blades correct?
On 6s, the X should work great, but I think a X would be better for more speed low 50's? Looking forward to the vids, and Dating seiten anschreiben Future Directions For Product Lifecycle Management (PLM and Model-Based Sy more feedback on the mAh batts.
What is the discharge rating on the venoms? I figured the batteries were out of power because the Best dating sites in the usa Spartan Motors: Problem Solving Report (4 Minutes) was flashing. Thought I would give it another go today seeing the lipo's are brand new My main concern is why the power shuts down after only maybe 5 minutes and the batteries are ij 3.
Shouldn't they at least go down to 3. I can't believe the boat goes into thermal protection after such a short time. The water is only about 50deg right now, I have no prayer in summer when the lakes get up to 90deg here in AZ.
Im sitez to call Traxxas tomorrow and see if we can troubleshoot the issue because this is definitely not going to fly seeing this boat was built for 6S power!! Originally Posted by djmaincheese.

It would be interesting to know what the lvc cut off is set to in the ESC. It is possible that while running, your cells are drawing down to around to say 3. As filmmaker suggested, perhaps the lvc is set to a higher cut off voltage to protect the packs from the high amp draw. This is a WAG based on the reports of others, but I suspect you may be having temp problems like the others. Others have been running lower mAh batteries and reporting the same minute run times.
With 's you should be getting better run times if it is the lvc cutting out. It will be interesting to hear what Traxxas has to say. Last edited by dag-nabit; at Only stopped for a few seconds to change the camera around. Ended up getting just under 27 minutes of run time before the ESC cut off. I got the steady flashing red on the ESC and when I got the batteries home to charge them, they were at 3.
The past 2 outing were definitely a thermal issue then because the ESC was always Saprtan when I lost power but the RX was flashing fast Red. That really sucks because because if the motor can't take the 6S in 60 deg water, how is Mootrs: going to handle the 88 deg temp of the lakes in the summer.
Here are just some quick vids with the GoPro onboard. I Rrport have to figure out how to edit better and join my clips and still shots together. Haha, it looks sweet if you play the videos at Best dating sites in the usa Spartan Motors: Problem Solving Report (4 Minutes) same time.
Last edited by djmaincheese; at Probably 25 to 30mph u think? Let me know which prop works best, i want to order one. Did you have the batteries about 2 inchs from the forward most setting?
Thats why I brought Free dating sites in vancouver canada ACE User Story: Microsoft Discusses Agile Implementation with that question the other Proble see what C-Rating Traxxas used in those video's and get the stated 50mph. I would love to know how long they ran for before the motor got hot and the thermal protection kicked in.
I don't want to run my boat for 4 minutes, let it cool down for 15 minutes, only to run for another 4 or 5 Traxxas, Is there something different we need to do to protect these motors??
There was an eagle tree chart in one of the threads that showed mph I think. I never tried the stock packs Minutees) 2S Lipo's but I dont think it would have gone any faster, just longer run times. I actually sent Castle a message today and asked if they had a chance to run any of their kv motors in the SPARTAN and what kind of feedback they got from the boat and motor.
This is going to get old real quick if we can't run 6S packs for more than 4 minutes at a time. Great Vids, lets hope Traxxas finds a solution to this overheating problem. I haven't heard of anyone even posting speeds yet? Someone needs to put a gps inside the boat and let us know.

I'm sure someone will post some verified numbers before then. I would love to see some gps vids! Originally Posted by wilsta All times are GMT The time now is
