aeronaut classic - Posted: 28th Nov 2018
i have bought a aeronaut classic kit to build over the winter , i have had to suspend other models (tugs) due to fumes and winter ventilation .
it will be my first wood kit build ,
i would like to fit a brush-less motor in the Classic but do not know which motor i could use to replace a speed 400,
can anyone recommend a brush-less motor for the classic

I have the following setup in my Classic: Graupner BL Compact 260Z 1380KV with a Graupner ESC 18A FWD and REV. The shaft is replaced with a Robbe 4mm (no 1442) as the one provided is a flimsy part that will not withstand the motor set-up. Prop is a 33mm Graupner racing item. It is running on LiPo 2S but if one need a rocket it can run on 3S. Great fun to build and performs great on the water

i did wonder about the shaft it is a little flimsy so thanks for confirming that and the prop, i a still pondering a motor as there seems so little room i looked at a out runner from a aircraft but maybe that would be too quick

A 28mm brushless between 1000 and 2000kv is OK for this size boat.
It depends on how fast you what to boat to go.
The area you have to run it in.
