Hi Ormer

I love my Bingo, still, I took out the standard motor and fitted a speed 480 in mine, this meant a change to the supplied speedcontroller, I just put in a cheap ripmax volcano (don't get water on it though).  I soon wanted more speed and my local model shop were selling Irvine 480 cobalt motors cheap (11), It now has an 11 turn cobalt motor and is really fun to drive, fast and responsive on 6 Sanyo 1400 cells, giving about 8mins run time on a 26mm bingo race prop, I have proped it up but the power and torque tend to send the boat spinning.

If you wanted to go brushless then a Mega 16/15/3 or Feigao 380 11L would be good, but you would have to keep the prop size down.

Hope this helps
