    Hi Maverick,
    I have been dealing with a company called Mack Products in NJ USA.
    Rich is the owners name he also builds his own line of boats, plus sells many other.
    He has been very helpful in powering my Typhoon.

    Hope this helps,

    Brushless are more of a high performance motor. I have a water cooled brushless in my Typhoon. It will turn 15K

    I would add that a decent brass prop matched to the motor will considerably improve performance. I have a 3 blade 45mm on my Sea Queen from Prop Shop and it cost about ยฃ30 so you need to factor that into ChrisF's costs.

    Ok, what I suggested to someone on Mahem and was going to use myself was:

    Motors; Overlander 50/45 720kV or Leopard 5055 650kV. The Leopard being available from Component Shop.

    Whilst there are many motor/battery combinations for smaller, lighter boats e.g. using 28 and 35 dia. motors etc. for a boat of this size and weight and requiring good planing performance then it is very limited. You don't want to go too low on the kV rating as then you will need more volts/bigger battery to give around 10k. rpm.

    Add in the ESC at around ยฃ50 plus, battery and charger at around ยฃ40 each and you're looking at around ยฃ180 so far, plus the prop shaft, prop and rudder assuming you've already got a suitable Tx and Rx. Not cheap!

    Yes, was going to mention that Dave. Unfortunately that motor is no longer available but was a bit of a monster!

    I'll look up what I posted elsewhere and post it.

    I suppose at a stretch the MFA 850 brushed motor would just about give acceptable performance if using LiPos instead of the heavy SLA I had in mine.

    SLEC who sell the kit suggest
    18in 4mm Prop Shaft PR830E
    2 Bladed 55mm Propeller Thread 4mm PR834D
    Extra Large Rudder 30 x 45mm PR833D
    3mm to 4mm Flexi Coupling PR840D
    Brushless Motor G60 500K
    Speed Controller 100 amp with Reverse
    Li-Po Battery 6s (22.2v)
    I accept you don't want to go brushless but these are the specs for a 48 inch long Huntsman 31.

    That is beautiful, I've always wanted to have a Flower Class on the water, but I've never really found the right model, the ones found have never been the right size to add a ๐Ÿ˜Šsmoke system and enable the gin to rotate, then lift and lower๐Ÿ˜Š

    Given what you said about using the fret saw the view about the size of the boat is a good one. I'm still pretty fit and strong but I sold my 47" Huntsman 31 as I found it too big and heavy just moving it around the house nevermind getting it in and out of the water, even if you remove the superstructure.

    So I'm now building one and a Swordsman, amongst others, at a scale of 1:12, so 31" and 33", which are a nice size.

    I was going to change the big MFA 850 motor and lead acid battery as the performance wasn't very good but sold it before doing so. I've advised one or two folks on what brushless motor and LiPo battery to use but as their boats aren't finished yet I can't report on their performance. But the guy who bought mine fitted a similar sized motor (but not available now) and it goes well - see photo. The motor, ESC and battery work out pretty expensive though. And you need a decent balance charger for safety.

    Be interested in what plans you're got for the big Huntsman - the only ones I know about are from the kits? If you do want to build at 1:12 there are plans available which I could look up?

    I've got to ask endurance to overpower... brushless over brushed, I've got to admit I prefer brushless, but am always ready and want to learn?
