    Formula Fastech Nitro to Brushless conversion

    I have 2 fastech nitros,want to convert one of them to brushless.i was thinking of using the motor and esc out of the Shockwave26 v3 bl,to keep it simple.i don't want a speed demon,just for pleasure,as im sure it will be quick enough with the 1500kv motor.my question is,i have never done this before,so im new at this sort of thing.just wondering how I would hook up the esc to the existing radio.do I have to remove anything? anybody have any experience in conversions? any help would be appreciated.thanks

    RE: Formula Fastech Nitro to Brushless conversion

    Love the fastech, fun little boat. Sounds like a fun project, I think the hardest part might be fabricating the motor mount. Make sure the motor is compatible with the drive line, flex cable? Re rout the water plumbing for the esc. Remove the throttle servo from the receiver and plug in the esc, pay attention to polarity.  Might be a good time to upgrade from the original radio and receiver if you haven't already. Might have to experiment with battery location and prop for the proper ride. I'm sure I have left out some important details, maybe a more experienced boat builder will chime in. Good luck.
