Hiya Canabus, I just use 2 x standard 540 brushed motors in my 'Neddy'.
Sufficient power with plenty in reserve. Runs for a whole sailing session and motors only warm on completion.
I did have the full size plan but sent them on to another modeller.


Regards,
Ray.

Hi Ray


I have two 540 rock crawler motors 80 Turn which on a 2S lipo run 5,500 rpm(unloaded).


I can change to 3S which would up the rpm's to 9000.


I can easily cut back the total throttle power on my Flysky I6.


One of these motor run my Eileen and Hellen fishing boat on 60% throttle with 60mm 3 blade props.


Hope to post some pics tomorrow as the boat only requires a few bits regluing and small areas repainted.

That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

My model runs very smoothly on two 555 12v motors and has the standard Billings props supplied for it.

Not that heavy, used a bit of lead, most weight was the battery a 12v 12amp. I am 71 with a back back, but the model I can lift in and out no problem and I have down to the design waterline.

I forgot to say I fitted the battery in, screwed the deck down. But made the forward superstructure separate so that I could lift it off and on to switch the electrics on and off but also charge the battery insitu
