The motors in question were from a production overrun and some of the pristine ones were sold by Action and others.
A load that had been stored and suffered cosmetic water damage were sold on the bay at 12 coins of the realm but alas they have all
Gone.

I have two of those for a current project  {-) do wish I had bought more. What was the ebay sellers id? I have such a poor memory for names.

I was reading a thread somewhere else  :embarrassed: that was comparing stats on several motors suggested/supposed to be Graupner 900 BB equivilents (some even hinting that they were Graupner) -All those ones turned out to be inferior. Can't see Mick buying crud.

If I remember it was Dave at Action who suggested that Mick use the 900s,and to avoid brushless? I have decided to go brushless with my Tamar,never having used them myself,and upon recommendation,I bought a pair of Pelikan motors from a supplier in Bristol.I wish I had bought the Esc's from them at the same time,but ordered them instead from Hobbyking Hong Kong (separate thread elsewhere on mayhem) and just last week received my completed order,the last item being the programmer almost 3 months.I did mention the motors I decided on to Mick,but he really wants the 900s,that's why I put in my request to help him out.
I hope we can find some for him.
Cheers,
Mick F

Not quite, young sir. Mick B had already said that he didn't want to use brushless motors so the 900BB was the obvious choice. I wouldn't advise anyone to avoid brushless as they are clearly so suitable for large scale lifeboats. I think it was simply a technology with which he didn't feel comfortable.
If I had two he could have them without question, but I didn't even save any for myself!

Thanks for the memory jogger Ned, knew I'd seen similar postings if not same thing, but couldn't find info using forum search.  Great memory - or researcher?         regards, Tony.

Hi Guys
I emailed Graupner and here is the reply - super quick.

The technician recommends the following replacement:

For the motor
Item no.         7774        Graupner Compact
510FZ 18.5 V

and for the controller
Item no.         7236         Brushless Control
60 SBEC plug G2

Both items are currently in stock.

Brushless though  {:-{ not what Mick wanted.

Hi Folks

I've just had Mick on the phone and he asked to thank you all for your well wishes and the pm's. Mick assures me he is much better now than we all think and he has a plan to get back to 100%.
....... I can report his vocal chords are hitting at least 150% already  O0 {-)

A VERY VERY BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ALL.

First & formost let me say I was blown away by the huge response I received when you were informed of my illness. The word 'thank you" in no way expresses the support that you all have given me. A bit of background is in order,when I awoke on Friday 11th of January two of the fingers on my left hand were "asleep". A little later the third & then the fourth went the same way. Phyllis got very worried(I have had a stroke before) & took me straight to the hospital.As soon as the nurse saw my hand they admitted me on the spot. Friday night & Saturday were given to test after test to the point I had my own personal porter. All this showed the artery to my right cortex was virtually blocked & might cause a major stroke at any moment. They decided to operate right away on Monday.One doctor from Saudi,one from Iran & the main surgeon was Chinese.When the Chinese doctor visited me before the operation I paid particular attention to how steady his hands were & asked how much practice he had, he said hundreds. Then the doctor that knocks you out came & I asked how big a Mallet he had to use, I am sure they thought I was a nut case.His name was Fraser so must have a touch of Scottish in himHere I should tell you that I have had Gout for a long time & the meds for it were affecting my kidneys to the point that they could not use dye to install stints so had to operate on artery to clear the plaque. I have sleep apnea and normally use a air mask to sleep. All  went well with the operation until I did not start breathing,panic, I am not sure how fast but they put a tube in to my lungs & got me started again. I had the tube & also a feeding tube for 3 days & let me tellyou you NEVER want it in you,for me it was one constant gag. Because of low oxygen intake it was decided that it was better not to move me so I was in ICU until Phyllis brought me home,( 11 days) a very rare occurrence they tell me. The room was state of the art & very bright with great lighting & a modern T/V, you could even see all your vital signs on it.to you all once again a big thank you, Phyllis in particular felt your support every day,you really don't realise what a great group of Guys & girls you are, I have lived a long time & never had this kind of support. Thank you Martin for your website & last but not least to my friend Dave & Jenny (Norsman)who stayed in touch every day  & kept you all informed about me. On a sad note I was upset to hear of Peters death, he was a friend to us all & will be sadly missed, RIP. Mick.B.  PS  = I will at a later date contact all that sent personal messages & will also explain more about the C/V joint that Petty officer Nick & Dave so kindly posted for me & YES it is a true C/V joint because it will drive through 360 degrees without binding. It is also very strong & there is repair kits also available, but more on that later, I am tired now. Yes the nurses were lovely but as soon as you start to notice they send you home.
