Question
Recomended Motor and ESC

Hi,
I have a 28 inch wooden boat hull that previously had a nitro motor in it. I have experience with planes and Cars. I already have LiPo's (2s and 3s) and a charger .
I have been dreaming to put this into electric for a long time. I would like to have the motor+ESC water-cooled since I already have inlets and outlets installed.

I was wondering if this setup is any good too :http://http://www.offshoreelectrics....=dh-aqcom-1800

Any help and advice is always appreciated.

There's a problem with your link so it's going to be really hard to tell you if it will work or not.

That's a really solid setup, but you can find a more budget friendly combo if you want.

A Turnigy 120a ESC is only about $50, and you can definitely find a motor for well under $100 that will work well.

This one from Hobbyking:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s..._Inrunner.html

Or the Leopard version:

Keep in mind you'll need to purchase a cooling jacket too.

Is there any difference between the two? The specs appear to be identical.

The one at Hobby King is out of stock. That's one difference.
I've used a couple of these over the years and they seem to be pretty reliable motors (cheaper than the Lep too) http://www.hobbypartz.com/96m812-3674-1700kv.html

I'm running the Hobbyking 1900Kv in competition for a year now, running on 4S, turning a threeblade 45 mm aluminum prop, nothing gets beyond handwarm.
Very nice motor for it's price.

Regards, Jan.

I think I will use the turnigy 120 A and the 1900kv 36 74 bl motor. I will run this on two 4000mah 2s in series.
