Motors for Dumas Dauntless
« on: June 20, 2015, 03:18:49 PM »

 Hi folks

http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/dumas-1211.html

I have built the Dumas Dauntless  (see above).   I am commited to the running gear and props That are 3/16 dog drive and 2inch 3 blade props.  The boat is driven via 2 motors and I intend to go for brushless as the original boat could reach 50 knots so I would like scale speed and then some.  My knowlege of Brushless motors is very limited and so I need to know what motors and speed controlers would suit the running gear and props. 

Thanks and regards Glyn

Hi Surfer71   I used 2 Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 3536 - 1400Kv Brushless Outrunners,  and yes it really shifted.

I ran them on 3s and found that ideal.  The current price on the UK site is 24.99.
