Hi Vernon,

Basically, fast electrics is a matter of experience and taking advantage of the vast amount of knowledge available on this forum.

Reading a lot on this (and other) fast electrics forae will first increase your confusion, but gradually it'll come to you...

If you then start asking questions about how to power your boat (assuming you want to power a boat), you'll get suggestions on which motor, prop, hardware and battery to use, to get the result you want.

Regards, Jan.
