ESC for Fairmile 'D'
« on: July 19, 2008, 09:33:33 PM »

Can anyone tell me what size ESC's I should use in a Deans Marine Dogboat. I am running four props, wired in two pairs,i.e two for port and two for starboard.

Many thanks, Paul.

I have the same Model and when I make it I am going to fit the ACTion Mixer and 2 x ESC's combined.
I would suggest for seperate ESC's to be 20 amp with a 15 amp fuse.

Hi Paul you might want to keep an eye on how hot your motors get.
I have a Kestral V in my PT boat running on 9.6V and although the engine is great it did get hot enough that I had to water cool it.  O0

ACTion's P94, dual esc and mixer. It is a cracking piece of kit for twin screws...Look no further..
