    If it’s to run a thumper motor definitely a 11.1v

    I tried a 7.2v battery but it was far too slow

    My battery is about 150mm long 48mm wide and 25mm deep (see pic) and it sits sideways in my boat behind my motor

    Scoop behind the propeller and the water gets pushed through so no need for a pump, mine has been fine and have run it for 10 years.

    I'm with you on that issue Colin. LiPO's are a needless cause of anxiety for me. Prefer SLA, gel-cells for their ballast value...& NIMH when a lighter battery is desired without the hazards of Lipo. I do hav LIPO chargers, & a few LiPOs. Yes a LIPO can provide longer runtime for less battery weight however in our Canadian society obtaining birdshot & other dense weights is problematic. I hav used rolls of old subway tokens (tube tokens), rolls of pennys & nickels, as lead is quite expensive. Have even used a few iron nails embedded in RTV silicone cement. They get heavier as they are rusting. Best 73 de VA3ROD

    I have just weighed my 11.1v lipo battery and it weighs 356g and I have weighed a 12V NIMH battery and it weighed 576g so consider the weight when you make your battery choice.

    On the flip side, my NIMH batteries are stable and have given me years of use, whereas I am on my second lipo battery as the first blew up like a balloon and had to be scrapped.

    Westwood, I have never tried lipo's, I'm old school, nicads, nimh's, and sla is what I've always used. In a small boat like my crash tender I can't use my preferred batteries SLA in 99% of my models.
    I'm too old to change now.
    Cheers Colin.

    Here is my 34 inch aerokits version over 60 years old now, but still works fine.
    Cooling water exits via the exhaust tubes in the stern.
    The monitors are fixed position but operate very well using an old 6 volt car windscreen washer pump switched by a microswitch operated by servo arm.
    The intakes for Cooling and the monitors are just behind the prop.
    All run from 7.2v nimh batteries.
    Cheers Colin.
