Brushless for my Marie Felling tug.
« on: August 19, 2012, 14:45:25 »
Can anyone help a newbie and electrical dummy with a problem?
I have a Caldercraft 'Marie Felling' tug weighing about 20kgs. It is fitted with a single screw 4 blade and 70mm prop.
I wish to fit a brushless motor and esc. Can someone explain in simple terms which spec motor and esc I require and a possible suggestion as to make etc.
Many thanks in anticipation.
Annie.

I'm interested in the replies you receive for your question Annie. I found a picture and model offering at "Cornwall Model Boats".


I looked at this picture, and still do, for ideas towards designing my custom tug design. . .Michael in Anacortes, Washington.

I have been offered and have accepted an EMax 4030/16. Out-Runner which a friend has suggested would be more than suitable for my vessel. He may also have an ESC!! Lucky me. ;)

Hello Annie

Good choice, if this is this a type with low KV (RPM/V) like these ones (353 or 420 KV) - High KV means, high speed and not really adapted for our low and large propeller   http://www.emaxmodel.com/views.asp?hw_id=31with a low KV
