Have purchased a JoTiKa Sea Queen kit, and have considered changing the supplied motor for something that gives a bit of speed.

Has anyone out there got any ideas that might help me - motor / prop size combination.

Also has anyone had experience of this kit and got any comments on issues !

Thanks in advance

Hi Andy
Welcome to the site.
There are many posts re building and fitting out Sea Queens on the site. You can search and browse. The boats in Harbour section will alsos give yousi details of the motor/prop/battery set up.
I have an original Aerokits version and in my 48" Sea Queen I use a brushless 42 size 850Kv water cooled motor of 700 watts and it is happy driving a Prop Shop prop of 42mm at 45 amp on full throttle. Power is from an 11.1v Lipo of at least 2200 mA but Nimhs would work, just not as fast and less duration.

I purchased and built this kit, did not have any problems but found the supplied brushed motor was inadequate for the performance I required. So installed an overlander T4250 brushless motor with a 45mm prop. changed the battery for an overlander Lipo 4500 mA battery, fusion Hawk 60amp ESC. totally different boat as to the performance. Slight modification to the motor mount was required.

I think I will upgrade my motor & battery like you have it's just the cost that I'm concerned with .

I have had a TFL SSS5694 1000Kv motor for 6S in the Sea Queen boat, the speed was great, but now I changed the power to a Zenoah 20cc engine, similar speed but with sound and smoke now.
