I have a problem with choosing the motors for this boat.
The lifeboat I built in the early eighties and upto today it had 2 x Deceperms fitted(6volt). One of these now as developed a fault
and it is far too expensive to buy a new one,soI have decided to go down the route of fitting a couple of MFA850's only to discover that these
love the amps and thus could burn my P94 ESC.

I would like to stay on the brushed side as I have the techobots sound generatormand this connects to the P94.

So which motors should I choose?
