I'm very new to this but have just finished scratch build
ing a 46" Vosper Firefloat in the old Aerokits fashion (ie all wood) to the point where I've primer
ed it, fitted a radio
and couple of motor
s (Graupner 600 chosen at random cos they looked adequate!) and a Lead Acid 6v 12Ahr battery
Tried it on the local canal today and two problems.
1: its underpowered...nearly gets on the plane with a fresh battery
but not quite.
2: The battery
only lasts about five minutes.
I'm an old git and don't understand "Lipids" or the benefits of "Brushless Motors" etc and would appreciate any help or advice
any of you experienced guys could offer me please on motor
choices to get the thing planing and running for more than five minutes.
Many thanks in anticipation
