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.
