Hi, as I have decided to use my refurbished, newly reversible Taycol Target in the Danish cutter restoration project I am considering going brushless for Sea Scout - 24". Weight empty 1.2kg.
Any recommendations? Like Don't Do It !! Or In / Out, kV rating???
As a newbee to BL advice would be welcome.
Ta in advance, Cheers Doug 😎

Hi RN
You would not have the plans for the Sea Scout.
I have the Sea Hornet if you require, plus a few others.

Hi canabus, many thanks for the guidelines 👍 I'll check them out and compare with sources here in Germany.
I already have some 3S 4000mAH accus. About 300gm but I figured the boat is so light empty it could manage that, mounted fairly well aft.
Motor: I had been thinking along the lines of around 400kV, 1000kV max. So your suggestion fits 👍 Had hoped to avoid prog. cards for the ESC but Hey Ho - needs must ...!
Already have such a prop in my collection so that's good 😊
Will price up the rest and see where we go. Will post results in the Build Blog. Will be a slight delay - off to Italy tomorrow for a week change of scenery! Many thanks again 😊 Cheers Doug 😎

PS No I don't have any plans, lost in the mists of time 🤔
But I don't think I need them, construction is fairly simple - standard Aerokit - and I don't plan to duplicate the boat! Thanks anyway 😎

Hi RN
The program card makes for a very easy setup and I can give you all the setting I use. the only change is from 3S to 4S and all the other settings stay the same.

Hi Canabus, much appreciated👍
For the first trials I'll stick with the 3S I have. Then we'll see!!
Thanks again, Cheers Doug 😎

Hi RN
If you ordered a 30Amp ESC they only handle up to 3S.
The 60Amp and 100Amp handle up to 4S.

Yep! Cos I only got 3S at the moment😉
Maybe later I'll experiment with 4S etc, see how she goes with this setup first.
Ta for all your help 👍 😎

Hi RN
I made a simple L bracket from 2mm aluminium with a slot cut out for the keel and the required holes for the motor.
Glued down with epoxy glue, is has work very well with the 1900kv 750 watt motor.
