    Not necessarily Bubble,
    By correctly programming the ESC for a soft start and a not too aggressive acceleration curve you can tame brushless at low speed and stop 'em leaping ahead like scalded cats! Worked fine on my Sea Scout upgrade.
    Even adjusting the motor timing can help with the fine tuning.
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    When choosing brushless motors the KV rating is an important part of the equation. A high KV rating will make slow speed operation difficult in a scale boat.

    Very nice, Doug. it'll come in handy next time you're surprised at the lake by a sudden eclipse.

    It wouldn't surprise me to find there was one with original power in the States. Not something we do here, of course. Oh nonononono, might be expensive, all that petrol, what?

    Cheers,

    Aha! Agreed, although I believe there is one restored and sea worthy in the states!? But that's not at all what you wrote; brain ahead of fingers again.
    Know the feeling. No matter,

    Ciao Doug 😎

    No, no, you misunderstand, Doug. Not doubting the engines in an Elco, but doubting the likelihood of finding a youtube of one with it's original power of 3 V-12s to record for a sound unit!

    Doubt away Ol' chap, but that's what the Elco 80s had.
    Not surprised you don't know them though - they've got guns 😲
    so not your thing are they.

    Only multi V 12 installation in a boat I know is the twin Packards in the huge commuter Thunderbird on Lake Tahoe. There is video with sound of her running on the tube. But 3 Packards tergither? Doubtful.
