Does any one have experience of models with twin motors in the Fairey Huntsman and Swordsman? (Or any boat)

Would like what size the model was - what motor(s) were used and prop sizes, and was there any 'mixing' of motor control with rudder control.

Hi Andy, I have 'twined both the 34" and the 48" Huntsman, i used 600 size motors in the 34, and 850 motors in the 48. Both were very quick, but, the run time was poor, about 10 mins.
With modern lipo's or big Nimh batteries they would be a lot longer especially if you used brushless motors. Props, on the 34, they were 35mm x 3 blade brass, on the 48, they were 45mm x 3 blade brass. Sad but i sold them some years ago but now have a 48" fireboat to play with.
