Smit Roterdam engine question
« on: September 16, 2009, 11:02:11 AM »

Hiya

Ok second post and this is for my brother who has the billings boat Smit Roterdam kit. Mentioned last night he was going to buy the r/c pack nect from Cornwall boats but at 75 + for two motors and a couple of couplings it sounds a tad pricey. Ive looked at the other links on here but the exact engines used by others dont seem clear. From what i can see direct linkage is the way to go with a couple of mounted Graupner non gear box 500 motors? Does that sound about right. If anyone disagrees could they supply me some links perhaps to other products( in teh UK) they think might suit better.

cheers

Hya! I too have a similar question as i'm currently giving my Smit Denemarken a re-fit as well.

I'm either going with fitting two Mobile Marine engines on a double coupling, or possibly two Buhler motors if i can find them!? Does that help in any way?

Have a look in the Mayhem "Traders Directory" where you will find several firms which supply motors and who will give you great advice for the price of a phone call.

Have another careful look at the Cornwall Models kit - it also includes a 6v SLA battery, a mains charger and connectors/leads.

Unfortunately it doesn't specify what type of motors are included. If your brother wishes to use direct-drive then he might consider a pair of slower-revving, high torque motors eg MMB755, along with a 12v main battery.
