Hi,

Ive spoken to the guy at astec models, he says that a 5xl motor is the one to go for and thats approximately 50. Which speed controller would i need for this?

Just make sure you program the E.S.C for the cell numbers/type , timing ect/ Or it might well all end in tears {:-{ Oh & DON'T over prop !

Hi John,

My boat has a metal prop on it! I think its an octura 1 and it measures 3cm from one blade to the other. And regarding esc's i was going to either get a giant cod 200amp or one of f1 madness.

Thanks

Hi,

The only possible problem may be that the esc is not programmable but can accept lipo batterys from 1-7 cells?

Thanks
