Like many people, I originally built
a Model Slipway 1:16 Tamar with the recommended brushed motor
Most of us switch

s for a number of reasons...
1. short battery
duration using NiMHs, or an SLA with brushed
2. These ALBs have an on-Service speed of 25+ knots and for scale speed, only brushless motor
s and LiPos can sensibly provide the power and duration.
Model Slipway converted their demonstrator to brushless
