    A 80 turn is the slowest at 5,500 rpm on 7.2 volts ( unloaded). If using a 60mm 3 blade prop and a 50mm 4 blade prop.
    ESC a Quicrun 60Amp with just straight forward/ reverse.

    HI Exsnapper
    Mine has a 1100kv motor, but is no longer available.
    So recommend a Banggood Surpass Hobby C3542-1250kv with a brushless 60/80 Amp ESC. Both required to handle 2 to 4S Lipo batteries( 3000mah 60C) and a 2 blade 40mm prop. No water cooling required for the motor and if you use a car ESC general they have an electric fan for cooling.
    Install to motor just forward of frame 4 and mount the battery cross ways in front of that.

    Hi Peter
    I think Banggood Surpass Hobby C3542-1250kv or the 1450kv which have 5mm shafts.
    Drop the batteries too much weight, a single 3S or 4S Lipo
    about 4000mah is about 400 grams.
    Brushless car ESC to handle up to 4S Lipo batteries.
    Prop size 35 to 40mm.
    I have use these setups on a number of my boats and all work well.

    Hi
    You can get a battery alarm which plugs into the balance charge lead and also the better ones read your total voltage and each cell voltage.
    Banggood and Hobbyking have them.

    Hi Cargoman
    If you do get one, add oilers to the motor and rudder shafts because you cannot to them easily after the deck is on.

    I set mine up with twin ESCs and two 2S lipo batteries (one 4000mah and the other 5000mah) the bigger one for safety.

    Tank steering it turns in it's own length and you can steer it backwards very well.

    Hi All
    Banggood and Hobbyking have them too.
    I have six of them and had no problems.
    I think they are the best ESC and because of the link setup so easy to setup.
    But I change the connectors to 3mm gold for the motor and XT60 for the battery.

    I am running a 910kv 50mm brushless, 100Ammp ESC, 4S 5800mah 40C Lipo battery with a two blade 45mm prop.

    The Queen requires the battery in front of the rudder and some lead(behind the rudder) as well to get it sitting up on the plane.

    This is my design from 2018.
    The first day test was a working boat, but, followed by three others that day.
    The pictures are of number three.
    Used it on the barge, a fishing boat and a cabin cruiser.
    Just a few ladies hair bans to hold it in place on the rescue boat.

    Hello
    The Eileen kit had a full set of plans with it.
    The Hellen kit had instruction drawings only !!!
    They stop his and change to an ABS because too many boats were getting built from their plans !!!

    A Hellen kit is on E Bay at present for big money.

    Hello All from Tasmania
    I did a little modification to my Eileen and made a lift out deck section between the hatch and the wheelhouse.

    This gives a lot better access into the hull.
    Also installed an oiler for the rudder and the cover deck is held down by magnets.

    Hi All
    I have two Hellen ones(the ABS hull version) and one Eileen
    which was unfinished and last worked on in 1981.
    It had all the parts and plans with it.
    I have finished the boat and sails very well with a 540 80 Turn rock crawler brush motor on a 2S Lipo battery.
    Throttle set at 60% forward and 75% reverse using a 3 blade 60mm brass prop.
    I also built a French Juilet 4 which is basically a wider version, but, bigger hatch and larger wheelhouse with three windows across the front of the wheelhouse.

    Hello
    Miss alignment sounds like the problem.
    You may have to change the motor mount and make up a new one.

    I replaced the whole drive line with a 4mm one and a 28mm brushless motor.

    Hello
    My last boat, I skinned the bottom first and added the spray rails.
    Next I installed the side skins and added the chine rails.
    Last was the deck skins.

    I found because I could clamp the spray and chines rails a lot easier as I went !!!!
