    I do have an inrunner, Doug, for my CNC outboard, but the one we're talking about here is an outrunner as it's the outside that spins and the innards which are bolted to a thick bit of aluminium.

    You can get the idea from the picture. My dear bride has just bought me an early Christmas present of a new camera which, I hope will take pictures clearly when the sun isn't shining. So my pics should improve soon.

    Never erd of 'em Mate!
    So you've got an inrunner, lotsa revs but maybe less torque than an 'equivalent' size Outrunner. Be very interested to see your running results.
    Cheers mate, Doug

    Doug, weren't GiantCod an electrical goods company like Bang Good? I used to read of them, but never used them. Suddenly went nappoo.
    2mm is unusual, but there they are and I had no trouble finding females for them. The motor is one of those little jobbies with a rotating can. Born to be used in a scale outboard motor with a dummy bit where the cord goes to pull start it. But then, where would you take the drive out of it (thinking aloud)? I have seen such a motor used in a heavy 3 footer which apparently planes, so my 2 footer with a step should be fine on 3 S. if it is, my other two similar boats will get similar set-ups. I had an Emax version of it, but gave it away, but they are still around and are only 7 quid.

    Thanks for the link, onetenor. interesting range for sure and my little emax CF for 7 quid so I may well be talking to them, in the future. Although we're seeing the end of the boaty season soon. I might stay with them and get some finished for next Spring/summer.

    Cheers,
    Martin

    This may help.https://www.robotbirds.co.uk/default/?SID=2e03407d3ced93e11f... log onto the RCME site (FLYING MODELS) and look at the list of associated suppliers for more. Robotbirds have wide range of motors Many of which have variations of the same type. A really wide choice. Quick,reliable, friendly and very knowledgeable.Have a look. I've had very good results with them.πŸ‘
    BTW Component Shop is also in Wales. Llanllechid,Bangor.πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž

    Component shop seems to prefer 'adapter'!
    Whatever, glad you've got it sorted, or nearly.
    2mm on the motor is unusual! What motor is it?

    Who or what the blue blazes was 'Giant Cod'??? Google's answer -

    HobbyKing is good for brushless, BUT I now also Google the Type/Model number of the motor that interests me on Hobbyking and sometimes I find the same thing cheaper here in Germany! Shop/Google aroundπŸ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Actually British people tend to go for "adaptor" for electrical equipment and "adapter" for people, although I have never seen, to my knowledge, the latter used in a body of writing.
    What I needed and have ordered from Wales, is a Deans male to fit into the battery because I didn't want to change the battery connector for all your excellent reasons, going to a pair of 4mm bullet connectors. Bullets because I have a pack of 10 already and I believe I may have a few more in a box of bits. So I have ordered a Deans male one end of a 50mm length of 12 gauge wire to a male and a female bullet. All the other connectors will be bullets. The bullets on the motor are 2mm diameter and I will keep them as the wires are short and I don't want to fiddle with them, so I have some 2mm females coming, which will go on the ESC motor wires. 4MM bullets on the ESC to fit the new adaptor and we're there. The ESC already has a receiver plug fitted.
    Thanks for the link. They look like a good source for the future. Now Giant Cod has gone, where would be a good place for cheap brushlesses?

    Cheers,
    Martin

    Hi Martin, spell it right and Lo and Behold 74 results!

    https://www.componentshop.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=adap...

    Personally, it's so easy I make my own, or swap connectors on one side.
    I would have used the other half of the Deans and not put bullets on a battery - too awkward to get on and especially off with risk of damage to the model when it gives way! I'm not surprised there wasn't such an adapter.
    Cheers, Doug
    BTW; I strongly suspect that the bullets on your motor are 3.5mm, jus as they are on all mine, buy a few 3.5mil spare sockets in case you buy another ESC with open wires.

    I put in Deans adaptor in search...nothing there. I found one on Ebay from Llandrindod Wells. Should be with me on Monday.

    That'll do. BTW on your link, there was wasn't a Deans male to 4mm bullets, but thanks for the link. They do seem to have a lot of stuff at decent prices. I'll bear them in mind another time.

    Cheers,
    Martin

    Not sure what you mean about component-shop. Just putting adapter into the search brings up loads of results, or there is a page available from the menu & if you can't spot the one you want just give them a call or e-mail & you will get a response today with delivery tomorrow a real possibility.
