Tamar motor help by alan50 Petty Officer   Posted: 8 months ago
Hi all Just got around to start building a Modelslipway 1/16 Tamar . This being my first model boat and RC I am at a loss to what motors to fit . I would prefer to install conventional brushed motors ,but the ones recommended a few years ago 600 eco are no longer available Would be grateful for any proven recommendations ,or any easy setup using brushless without cooling . Trying to keep it simple and not too expensive Thanks in advance for any comments .

Interested in a Model Slipway as they give stage by stage assembly procedures . As new to boat modelling l though l wouldn't be thrown in at the deep end . Thanks for your reply. If nothing becomes of advert , l'll place order for new kit .
