As far as I can see, it makes no odds. Site the fuses where you can see them and get at them.

Reasoning? With the qualification of the cable lengths we're talking about on a model boat, it's the same high current in to the P95 fuse, as out of it, assuming a trip state hasn't been reached, so you may as well site the fuse anywhere reasonable along the cable run to the motors.

Indeed, checking Action's info sheet, they make no siting recommendations with regard to the P95.

Short answer = please youself!  :-)

Robert is right; it doesn't matter in this case. BTW the Speed 720BB Torque doesn't draw a large current so you could go down as far as 16 or even 18AWG silicon cable and still be OK. 12AWG is a swine to solder and also to bend round sharp corners - and it's more expensive.

Thanks for the reply Robert /Dave that's that sorted . As you say Dave 12awg is abit of a pain to solder but I have it on stock  so I will use it for what bit I want.


Just a thought Dave ,when you ar on about  "me duck"  ,when I went to live in Doncaster ,went into a cooked chicken  shop and the woman infront of me asked for a chicken" duck" never heard this before coming from Cumberland
Thanks again
