    Boomerang top speed

    Hey Guys My first posting here. So.. many years ago in a galaxy far far away when i was a young lad i received a brand new Boomerang as a B'day present already made by my Dads mate, much fun had! entered in Sunday meets (just 4 fun racin) and alot of after school bashing with me mate Cotsell. 30 years on after looking for gadgets to spend some hard earned cash on discovered that Tamiya were still going, after a second! contemplating decided got to get one. Having never before built a Tamiya or any other rc vehicle I were looking forward and hoping to be challenged by the build, Overall Enjoyed putting together found instructions very informative and build quite easy, did over a week for an hour or so each evening, the most daunting part of the project was the body cutting, experimented on the chassis cover with scissors, went ok but not perfect, The body however i wanted it to be perfection. So did some research from mainly you guys here on Tamiyaclub and was suprised that many of you mentioned scoring with a craft knife and bending was key, this works superbly and is actually quite therapeutic creating the bodywork this way (very light scoring and very sharp thin blade required). PLAYTIME First run.. 3000mah nimh battery, stock tble 2esc and silver Mahbuchi motor.(not recorded) Run 2.. hpi firebolt 15t motor same battery and esc but with steel 17pinion on motor. 26mph??? ..... according to iphone 4s app attached inside body. O.k to be honest i was sceptical about the old iphone 4s gps reading and app, so have now changed to samsung s6 with very good and tested app. Today , I received direct from Hong Kong Ezrun 9t brushless motor and esc combo (£27.99) fitted, works well and leaves skidmarks all over laminated flooring in house 😀... will inform if any requests are taken on next run.. Any guesses ?
  3. Nice one ! Cheers dude. The motor and esc are an ezrun copy from ebay / Hong Kong cost £27.99 and took about 2 weeks to get to me.
  4. Thanks Jason 👍 Great page you have going, i look forward to seeing my name on the list.
  5. Not bad for a novice eh. Did cut the video short though as car did take a few knocks and flips lol.
  6. Hi Andy Thanks for the interest, yes it is 2008 version bought a month ago. I did do a 2s run and reached 35.55. On a 3s I am pretty sure on a longer road this will near 50 mph as the gps used takes a while to record max speed.
  7. Apologise for camera, you might want to lock screen on device.

    Snakepalms, Got me gps(Sigma sport pure gps) and can confirm it does record Max speed, works well and is as good as my Berlingo van built in sat nav Speedo, However does take time to register top speed like most gps do. And is about 2mph lower than current speed shown on Van speedo but this seems common on any gps tested. (******* van i know ).

    Boomerang top speed

    ? With the 3s plugged in the esc fan has failed, on a volt test the esc to fan is giving 12.5v which is far to much for a 5v fan, £27.99 hobby ezrun copy direct from Hong Kong so not to bothered by that, my concern now is that high voltage to the steering servo, I can' t remember the volt rating for the servo, again only a cheap 9.99 off amazon sure it was 7.2v, how long or any idea if the extra 5v from 3s will knacker this too ?

    Boomerang vs Hotshot

    Boomerang has lots of room inside, my Galaxy s6 fits nicely.
