Looking for an idiots guide to brushless setups as tempted to change over to see if it solves my headache of brushed systems and wondering if it's worthwhile . Model is Graupner loschkruezer weser fire boat around a metre in length with 3 props

Having said that I reckon somebody with the requisite knowledge could draw up a comparison chart,


ie:- 380 brushed motor could be replaced power for power  by say a 14/22 or a 540 size could be replaced by a 18/36 brushless. Don't take these brushless figures as gospel I just made them up. But you get my drift! I know its not as easy as that but it would give new users a ball park figure to check motor specs etc etc.

Yup would be great as I'm still used to the old bobs boards and any battery you could find setups lol .

Plus my fireboat runs 3 x 600 and doing my head in so thinking brushless may be a better idea to get the bow planing and not have just about every part of my electronics overheating in series lol
