Sounds like it's an IC engine to me, probably a 10 to 15cc in a 48" huntsman

The Huntsman hull, as with the real thing, really can handle any water conditions. Great to see a boat in action like that.

Hi, I have a T600 brushless in mine.WoW is she fast!


I have just seen this motor on the HK site and it looks perfect for a project that I have in mind.


Can you let me know what size prop you are using please and advise if a 150amp speed controller would be OK to use with either three or four cell LiPo's please?


Also, have you found a water-cooled mount that can be used with this motor, or do you use fan cooling instead?


Thanks for your help,


Bob.

Thanks Olly,


Do you have a water-cooled motor mount, do you use a fan to cool the motor,  or do you not need to cool the motor at all?


Your help with this would be appreciated as I cannot find a water-cooled mount that this motor will fit.


Thanks,


Bob.

I have a water cooled mount.
No other means of cooling.
Because the T600 is an out runner it's only the bearings at the front end that get cooled.
The mount I used was a watercooled 540 mount
On ebay search for
540 water cooled brushless motor mount and fiber stand for electric rc boat 1762.
This is the type your looking for but make sure the dimensions for the orange part are 53mm, I had to file the slots in order to get the T600 to fit.
Hope this helps?
