    sorry no I have not, 40 years ago I had a 48 inch Huntsman with a 25cc Fox petrol engine to power it have returned to the hobby after my wife passed away and have not a clue about brushless motors that is why I am asking for a recomendation for a brushless motor unless of course somebody can tell me where I can procure a 25cc Fox engine (the importers used to be in Brighton)

    Hi, I have recently purchased a Precedent KD Perkasa kit 37" and would like to power it with a brushless motor, but being an Old F**t I know nothing at all about Brushless Motors or their relevant speed controllers or battery power. So I would like your input on what exactly I need, obviously I would like the model to have a fair turn of speed. Thanking you in anticipation of your much needed assistance. Little Charlie

    Are there any members on site who once floated their boats on the lake on Wanstead Flats (top of Canhall Road) the lake dried out in the summer of 1976 (OMG am I giving my age away) and never refilled again. The reason I am asking is that I am looking for a friend of them days, who due to the drying out I lost contact with
