Powering a Chris Craft Cobra

hey all,

so I need to power up a recently bought Cobra ( Dumas) and a Billing Phantom

what do I need to use?

open to all suggestions but I really don't have a clue, back in the day I would just use a 540 or 550 and some kinda ESC, these days they need to be matched judging by the posts I have read.

I am not a millionaire but on a pension so keep this in mind please!

any help is appreciated!
Cheers

Laurie

Brushless motors and LiPo batteries are such a giant leap forward I would be hard pressed to go any other route. Boat size and weight, along with hull shape are necessary for accurate suggestions.

Size for size, brushless are vastly superior, excellent power to weight ratios, and available with many more RPM per volt options than an old can brush motor.

Cobra power

Hi, I have both of my Cobras ( Dumas 18' and scratch 21' ) powered by Rimfire EF1 outrunners, Seaking 120 amp esc, and 2s lipos, x4-40 props. I probably could use a smaller amp esc but, I have a tendency to go higher than needed. You can see it running on you tube. under 21' Chris Craft Cobra. thank you, Gary
