I am looking at putting brushless outrunners in my 1/12th Speedline Severn lifeboat.Just wondered if anyone could advise me on what size to use please?


Thanks in advance

Hi There

I'm in the process of building a Severn at the minute and Have listed the motors and batteries I'm using on this page.

I haven't yet had the boat powered but when I asked about suitable motors on here no one objected to my choice.  :-))

Hi Bigcheese,
I have a 1/12 scale lifeboat, installed are two Emax B/L 4030/10 850KV if you can still get hold of the motors and twin forward and reverse 60amp Turborix speed controllers.I can operate it on 12v SLA scale speed or 24V like a scalded cat.
