Hardware (motors etc)
« on: January 18, 2017, 11:58:42 AM »

Morning again,


The Riva Aquarama i'm building came as a set of plans with little information (a few suggestions). The plans were for a static model which was suggested could be adapted for RC. The suggestions included adding a pair of 400 electric motors which meant nothing to me. Looking it up 400 would seem to relate to brushed motors, but I would welcome any some help with the running gear required for this boat.


The boat is 760mm in length and 200mm at the widest point give or take a mm. The weight of the hull (see previous post) without decking is 1.1kg. The original boat was powered with twin engines and I would like to do the same with the model.


Any help would be much appreciated

Hi joiner, the model is good for both brushed or brushless motors, have a look in the archives i think there is a build blog,  a couple of brushless motors and lipo batteries will keep the weight down and allow a very good turn of speed.
