I have recently just built and launched a Robbe Magin One and to be honest I am a little disappointed about its speed!. It is running 2x 7.2 volt batteries, its standard 700/12 motor but a Electronize FR15 ESC. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can do to speed it up a bit. Cheers

Having a 12V motor, it seems to me there is simply a lack of voltage...

Hi Allen Robbe recommend a 710 motor and a 12v battery pack.
What size prop are you using?

the motor is stock (think it is a 710) from the supplied power pack and i am running two 7.2v packs giving 14.4 volts.
The prop was also stock. I say stock, as it came off last week and am trying to get a replacement.
Any suggestions?

Hi Allen are you using NiMH Battery Packs as these dont often like being wired in series. If your motors are the 710s they should work on 12v. As you are getting a new prop remember small props are often better than large for speed. My Robbe PT 15 has a Mtronik vision 600 motor and a 35mm 2 blade prop and it flies.

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
