  Hi All
          Hopefully a quick question ?

          How do our tuggers set up their boat electrics,what is their ultimate set up and why

 !!  what type of batteries what voltage and amperage
 !!  do you use fuses
 !!  what type of on/off switch and what amperage
 !!  do you use a seperate reciever pack or a bec or a 6 volt regulator
 !!  whats your preffered electric motor
 !!  do you use a gear box
 !!  do you mix twin screw and if so is it in the transmitter or on board
 !!  do you use a fail safe
 !!  whats your preffered speed controller and why
 !!  how do you control  and drive your ancillary equipment

         will you get the perfect set up for Christmas

A bit unhelpful I know  :-[ but.....

!!  what type of batteries what voltage and amperage – biggest that’ll fit
 !!  do you use fuses - yes
 !!  what type of on/off switch and what amperage - depends, last one had a 20A toggle switch under a hatch for the main supply
 !!  do you use a seperate reciever pack or a bec or a 6 volt regulator - prefer bec but sometimes use the others
 !!  whats your preffered electric motor - depends on the boat, I do like 720bb and 900bb from Graupner
 !!  do you use a gear box - sometimes
 !!  do you mix twin screw and if so is it in the transmitter or on board – yes, which ever is easiest/ most practical
 !!  do you use a fail safe – no
 !!  whats your preffered speed controller and why – depends, reliability, recommendations and price
 !!  how do you control  and drive your ancillary equipment – depends what it is

SLA's 2x 6v 4.5ah... both wired to give 6v and 12v. Moving up to a 12v 7ah on the latest project
Fuse?... whats that?
Isn't that what the battery connector is for?
BEC
Pittman 14201's.. bulletproof motors!
