    Hi Newby7, Could you please tell me the make and model of the outdrive & motor you are using on your build. It looks quite a compact unit compaired to the one I have also it looks a hell of a lot lighter than mine.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Update on the water cooling. Remembered I had these items. Will look to build an internal cooling system to cool the ESC. The good part is there is plenty of room to install all items. Also the water reservoir will be part of the ballasting.

    Thank you all for the replies. I'm learning so much from this information. I will process all and figure out how to proceed.

    Hi Newby7
    If you look at
    https://www.bauer-modelle.com/epages/Bauer_Uwe46269592.sf/en...
    they sell your motor and a cooling unit that attaches to the fixed plate on your motor where the three wires are attached. You may be able to modify your inboard motor fixing to allow this to fit. You will also need a water intake scoop just aft of the prop, plus an outlet shaft for the side of the hull. You can then connect some silicon tubing from the inlet to the motor, then to the esc and finally to the outlet shaft. I use small cable ties round the tube at each junction. I attach apic of my Sea Queen motor set up. This uses a large block of aluminium for the engine cooling but the principle is the same. The water enters from the stern and exits to the side of the hull. My ESC, again home made, has two cooling tubes hence the loop of tube.
    Cheers

    Hi Rick

    That ESC is a replacement for the Volentex range of RTR (ready to run) boats and has two battery connections for batteries in parallel - is that what you wanted? Those type of boats are tight for space and to give good speed and duration they utilise two batteries.

    Also that ESC has to be water-cooled as it is wrapped in plastic and doesn't have any cooling fins.

    I've got a HobbyWing Seaking ESC which has cooling fins as well as water connections so should be alright without water-cooling though I'm going to change to HobbyWing car ESCs for other builds.

    My Huntress at 23" doesn't have water-cooling and is fine but is run at varying speeds. My RTR race boats are fitted with ESCs like the one you have bought and are obviously run at constant high speed.

    That's a nice looking bit of gear Rick,

    You probably know this but you have an Outrunner in the photo.

    It pays to check if the water cooling fittings are sealed properly.

    You may be able to make a little water tank and use convection to circulate the cooling water but only if the controller is quite over rated, just need to be sure the speed controllers water cooling jacket is full of water.

    Cheers,
    Stephen.

    Hi Trev,

    The water inlet and outlets are beside the black output wires.

    Cheers,
    Stephen.

    I don't see the water inlet and outlet on the ESC?
