How to install the inflatable fishing boat?

Step 1: Locate the air valve on the boat and remove the valve cap by rotating counterclockwise. Then insert the hose into the valve and inflate to 8-10 PIS. Both sides of the fishing boat edger have two air valves that need to be inflated.

Step 2: Lay the boat flip side on the flat surface, and then insert the motor propulsion thruster into the mounting base plate and lock the latch. If your boat does not have a mounting base plate, don’t worry, the propulsion thruster comes with the base plate.


Step 3: Fix the waterproof battery pack box on the boat with tapes, and then connect the motor phase wire, inlet&outlet pipes.

Step 2: Open the VESC_Tool (firmware 6.02 as an example).

Please remember to check the motor running direction and make sure it’s the same as your CW propeller or CCW propeller.


Step 3: Long press the setting button into the “Pairing” and then short press the button to pair with the ESC. Choose the correct "App to Use" and "Control Type".

Select “UART” in “APP to Use”, and then click “↓A” save setting.


In “VESC Remote” select “Current” in “Control type”, and then click “↓A” save. Finally you can try to use the remote controller VX3 pro to drive the motor.
