Motor recommendations please
« on: September 03, 2012, 08:13:31 PM »

Thinking of building this model, does anyone have experience of it?    http://www.aero-naut.de/en/products/boats/ship-models/private-boats/princess.html   
What motor / battery / ESC combo would you advise other than that advised by the kit makers. Only brushed motor and only NiHm battery suggestions please.

Thanks, Terry.

Hi Bob, a belated thanks for the reply, been a bit sidetracked lately. I have made a few enquiries about this kit, but little or no feedback, makes me wonder why??

Cheers, Terry :-))

Terry,
I think one of the main problems is actual room, the cockpit takes up a lot of useful room.
With room so tight i thing i would go for a 540 motor on 7.2 volts.
You still have to ger the steering servo, propshaft, u/j, motor, esc and battery.
