Cygnus GM32 - Posted: 7th Oct 2018
My latest project, Cygnus GM32. Going to be a fwd wheelhouse, other detail not decided yet! Any one have any build detail of running gear used successfully on other boats? I've made a Skeg and rudder and fitted a 65mm prop direct to a 700 size 5000rpm motor which draws 14amps in water. Any suggestions on esc would be welcome other than the screaming mtroniks I have now!

Hi Cygnus GM32
I am using these Hobbyking ones
Links to setup the ESC on Lipo and Niamh.
I have used them on 12 volts , but, they will not work on 6 volts.
You can crash straight from forward into reverse !!!
Running a 70mm 3blade on one Hellen fishing boat (weight 14 pounds) and a 60mm brass 3 blade on the other Hellen.

Nice work so far! My last build was a GM 33. I’m not great with electrics but have similar engine to you with a 700mm screw.
Will be watching your model take shape, love a good fishing boat!
