    Well I purchased a hugely powerful brushless motor, (before I realised it was over the top!) so paired it up with something that might handle it!, 4ft long, fibreglass hull, 150amp esc, first water trials sucked a 12v 5amp (what I had at the time) dry in 4 minutes!
    Put an ammeter on it and it’s drawing 40amps!
    It’s all trial and error and learning on the way!

    It’s a brushless 3660 3600kv loads on eBay less than Β£20, definitely needs Lipos!, and they need a high current draw rating, at least 50c
    I’m using a 3S, and it rockets the 4’ boat along!, it also needs a decent water cooling system as gets warm!

    While I’m still sorting out the running, problems to solve now are, it won’t turn at full pelt, assuming the rudder servo isn’t man enough, so will update it to a metal geared hi torque one, and the motors getting very hot, thinking of adding air cooling as well as the water, Added a flying bridge for no other reason than I fancied it :-)
