Title: Questions regarding Aziz...
Post by: adam_goodin on October 18, 2010, 11:00:06 PM
Hi all,
 I know these questions will have popped up many times (and ive already asked in my tugs post) :embarrassed:, however, im in need of your advice if you don't mind...
Im building the Aziz (along with many other models haha!!) and i have never fitted a bow thruster, so, if you could give me advice, tips etc that would be great!
 And also, regarding electrics etc ... I have a 4Ch radio ready and intend on running the motors individually, plus the thruster and steering...theres my 4 channels used.
However, at present in the spares list i have...a 12v 12Ah battery and 2 Marine 25 ESC's.  Can i use these do you think, and do i need a 3rd ESC for the thruster?

 Many thanks all :embarrassed:

Hi Adam,

It's me again. Been following you all over the site.  Might be a good idea if keep all your Aziz questions in one place.  ok2

Yes you will need a speed controller for the bow thruster, but as it's a small motor, a smaller amperage one will do the job.
