Hi there, can anyone help with a question about current flow through an electric motor (in this case Brushless).
A boat in the bath (static) pulls 25A is there a relationship to what it will pull on open water (dynamic), I know there are many factors involved. I am looking for a best gest-imate or practical experience, for a average planning hull.
I once read It was between 10-15% less when moving but this could be for a displacement hull.
Hi there, Sorry but Cumbria has no Canals, Lancashire has some 40 miles away. Cumbria has some lakes some covering 5 acres or more all with overhanging trees, poor access, exposed to high winds and rain, and a nice 4-7 mile walk to get to the other side.
The Windermere club was about 40miles from me but has no water at present and has not had any for a number of years.
I may be fussy, but if something goes wrong (which it often does) I need to get my boat back without too much trouble.
It is surprising but even small public ponds/paddling pools have been closed by local councils in-case they get sued.
So I travel a round trip of 80 miles to sail at Darlington Model Boat club, a great bunch of lads they have a 80m square pond with access all round, a rescue boat, a club house, toilet and kitchen.
I also go to Norwich, Eaton Park when I visit my Dad a fantastic old Victorian walled pond about 30m by 120m.
