Sébastien Dubé: Yeah your rc seems lazy... Maybe a 3100 KV is not enough fast I have a RC18T on 5200KV motor on 2s and it's still uncontrolable on paved road
Noxz: Dude I tried this on my video. My car still works.
Strangera.com: Well it depends on the lipo :D mine is 7.4
Ray Heery: actually a 2s li-po measures at 8.4v fully charged
Strangera.com: I have used silicone to waterproof the ESC. There is a video in my channel called "HPI Mini Recon - обратно в бокса ;)" you can see the process at around 8:00 ;)
Matthew Bracher: great song
mondialienation: i have take this difference by gps,
on stock engine stock battery 33kmh full speed
stock engine 2amp/H nanotech 2s : 38kmh
Strangera.com: Hi, sorry for the late response. I have used silicone to waterproof the ESC. There is a video in my channel called "HPI Mini Recon - обратно в бокса ;)" you can see the process at around 8:00 ;)
So now the ESC is pretty much indestructible, but I will still not recommend using direct water, because of the other parts that are not so waterproofed. :) Using compressed air to clean them is much safer and effective. :)
Rcnation101: What the hell snow man to a dub step love it
jdunbar1820: I dropped a associated reedy 9500 combo in my recon with a 3S lipo MIP SUPER DIFFS and a steel spur gear. 15t pinion. Super fast!
hawkeye2196: Im getting the ez-run 5200kv motor combo. cant wait to try it.
Alexandre Figueiredo: @strangeraFTW Yes, you're right. I started by looking at a 5200kv and a 7800kv motor but I don't want to have to change all my transmission to metal right now. 3100kv is just what I need to give it a little boost and still be able to maintain the stock transmission.
Strangera.com: @avfigueiredo np. BTW you can test with even bigger motor if you want to "risk it", but in the end of the day, more of the parts in the Mini Recon are plastic, so I decide to go with 3100kV motor.
Alexandre Figueiredo: @strangeraFTW I'm sold.
I'm going to buy that motor and esc to give my MR more power and speed.
Thanks for the fast reply.
Strangera.com: @avfigueiredo On the battery part - there is not so big difference between the original battery, and the lipo (except the capacity). "Voltage wise" in the end of the day, the original is 7.2V, and the lipo that I have is 7.4. Plus the lipo is lighter then the original battery pack,
Strangera.com: @avfigueiredo I have test the new motor & esc and it is running just fine. There is a little bit more "punch" when using the lipo, but the MR is running fine with the stock battery.
On the second question - yes there is big difference, but it is coming from the motor not the battery. I haven't test the original motor outside, but now when I am at home it is almost impossible the press the trigger to the max, because the MR is just 2 fast, and 2 furious with the new setup. :)
Alexandre Figueiredo: Have you tested that motor and ESC with the stock NI-MH battery?
If you did, can you tell me if you felt that the performance with this new motor+ESC using the HPI stock battery is a lot better than using the stock motor and ESC?
DustyDylan: i found out my mini recon isint water proof the hard way it fell in a puddle and i cant go back words
