    Hi Colin,
    If I were you I might go for the 5 pole 385s instead of 380s.
    They should give you much smoother control at low manoeuvring speeds.
    You then may not need the gearbox(es)๐Ÿ˜‰
    Even with the gearboxes I think the 385s would be better.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    BTW The gold ESC in your pic reminds me of the Hitec SP-6 ESC I had in my Sea Scout, then briefly in HMS Hotspur ca 30 - 35 years ago! Still got it, an' it still works๐Ÿ˜Š

    Should be room for 2 off 380's with small gearbox, the picture is of my old paddler setup.
    Hopefully this next one will be tidier.
    Cheers Colin.

    The steam engine I saw Colin looked quite narrow and had a shaft coming out of it on each side. I wouldn't have thought it was any wider than twin electric motors, but there, I'm no authority on these new fangled steam and infernal comboostion things.
    They won't last you know, we'll run out of coal and stuff and then we'll have to come back to sail and oar.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Contemplation is the precursor to procrastination Nerys!

    Paddlers intrigue me Colin, though I have never considered building one. I became acquainted with them at a very early age being taken on day trips from Barry to Weston or Minehead. The nearest I came to owning a model was when I contemplated buying one on the 'bring and buy' stall at one of the shows.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Nerys, steam power is out of the question, as its quite a slim Hull.
    So it will be twin motors with individual driving paddle wheels. Although the plan shows single drive.
    Cheers Colin.
