    As I said originally Martin - if its a 5 pole no problem for your ESC - try a 10amp fuse first - they make a 15amp as well but that could be problematic with pushing the limit of the ESC.

    Looking at the specs again 10amp should be fine as the load on 7.2v should not exceed that..........

    Unfortunately Howes still list the 540 5 pole you have under the same name as the 540 3 pole - however as said before they have no stock but do list a 545 of a different brand...........

    Different converter 🀞
    😎
    Better πŸ˜€
    Sure looks like 5 to me Martin, alone from the size of the segments.
    Whatever, your ESC should be fine with a 10A fuzzy πŸ˜‰

    Thank's Doug that is a much better video.

    I agree 5 poles (white mark to white mark)

    I used an iPad to take the video.

    Hi Guys,
    Sorry the plan of this thread was to see what boat/motor/ESC/prop/battery combinations you guys have but i ended up hogging it.

    Hi Martin,
    Sure looks like 5 to me!
    Wonder why it has the wrong label, or MFA cocked up the website?πŸ€”
    Just tried a conversion of the MOV vid you sent me.
    Let's give it a whirl πŸ€žπŸ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug 😎
    OddπŸ€”? That came out grainy as well, although the original was much better!
    And the converted mp4 file plays perfectly with Windows Media Player.
    Did you take the vid with some kind of phone or tablet?
    If so which? Might help with the conversion to know that.

    Martin, I only counted 3 segments, but the wires look fine enough for a 5 segment motor.
    Gone to look in my motor box, back soon.
    Cheers Colin.
