    My mistook! Thought it was a scale boat.
    OK, Try nosing around here
    https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/propellers_451...
    There's at least a 25mm version, M3.
    Or here, from 30mm, only M4 though
    https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/propellers_230...

    FYI attached is the current Raboesch catalogue, lots of useful stuff, not just props.
    BTW: my Sea Scout, same hull, uses a Raboesch brass 30mm from the 162 series and she's sporty enough don't you think?
    Whatever, Happy HuntingπŸ‘
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Problem with Raboesch props, Doug (apart from cost) is that they're very scale boatish. I will need something a bit sporty and 2 bladed. I could make one, of course, but have no idea where to start shapewise apart from copy a real fast runabout prop. Silver soldering a prop ain't a problem for me. it's a damned faff though! Here's the boat I'm kinda modelling the Sea Hornet mods on.

    Cheers,

    Raboesch also do imperial threads MartinπŸ˜‰
    https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/raboesch-176-s...

    CMB also have some Graupner plastic props (😑) but not much of a selection. Small sizes only with 2mm thread. πŸ€” Turn your shaft down?

    But you can't make him spend his spondooliks, yeah I know. Found the prop shaft for the Sea Hornet. it appears to be M3. Knowing my luck it'll be 1/8th" Haha.

    Doug, thanks for the reference to Raboesch, but 12 quid a prop ain't gonna happen I'm afraid! I shall have to find some under 30mm plastics somewhere though, just in case they are what's needed. Either that or cut down 35mm props.

    Me, in Hornet II? Ha! I should be so lucky. I've still only ever been in one speedboat despite loving them all my life (apart from my own Albatross of course, which I only ever got one go in before the river speed police moaned at me).

    Agree on the 'blue' motor Martin.
    Looks like the mounting flange, as on the Tower pro motor, is missingπŸ€”

    BTW: is that per chance your bald patch in that natty ally covered gent's racer? 😁😁

    Hi Martin
    have a look at the Rabeosch range at Cornwall Model Boats.
    https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/m2-raboesch.html
    Don't know what diameter your shafts are but the 156 series might do what you want and they start at 20m (EDIT: Oops! read mm please😲), as do most other series.
    https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/R156-M2.html
    for the 3mm shaft versions
    https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/m3-raboesch.html
    or 4mm
    https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/m4-raboesch.html

    I am gradually changing all my long thin WW2 ships to the Rabeosch 162 series with excellent results.😊
    https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/R162-M3.html

    Now back to some fish cutter bashing! I've got less and less boat😲but more and more space for motor and batteries an' stuff!😊
    Blog update soonπŸ‘
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Thanks, Doug,
    the blue brushless is held by something that grabs the smaller cylinder and the rest spins round, ergo, outrunner. if I ever make a lightweight I might try one in there. The brushed 400 I will try in the Sea Hornet. Gotta be worth a try. And that Simprop should be OK for it, n'est ce pas?
    What concerns me is the lack of sizes available in props. They all seem to start at 35mm which might be a little too hefty for the 400, but I can't find a 30mm anywhere.

    I also found the Hornet II I carved a while back with a view to getting it scanned for frame sections, so that's another wee job to finish off. I am looking forward to doing that one.

    Cheers,
    Martin

    Evenin' Martin,
    Attached the Graupner Speed 400 specs. Pic 1 is the brushed version nominal 7.2V, pic 2 the brushless nominal 11.1V.
    Don't think the brushless 400 is any good for your Hornet, not enough shove? Ca 14400rpm OFF LOAD with a 3S LiPo.
    The brushed version might be though. it should run OK up to MAX 9.6V.
    Try 'em and compare.

    The 62mm in the TP2408 seems to include the shaft length!
    It might well drive your Hornet but maybe not record breakingπŸ˜‰
    The other, blue one, might! But who knows as it's anonymous 😲
    On closer inspection I suspect the blue one is an inrunner!?
    Cheers, Doug 😎
    PS: Specs for your Simprop ESC
    "5 bis 10V. Strom: 12A (25Amax). 5-8 NiCd / NiMH. BEC: 5V/1A.Gold-2mm Buchsen. Maße: 27x11, 5x8, 5mm. Gewicht: 5g. "
    I.e. 5 to 10V, Current 12A (25A MAX). So OK for your Taycols on a 6 to 9.6V NiMhπŸ‘ Not sure if it does backuds though, probably not!
