Question
blue wonder 1500 kv outrunners

Anyone ever use these in a boat? Do you think they will run an inch and a half 3 blade prop similar to what is used for springers without smoking?
The only reason I ask Is I have two of them that I was going to use in a flying sub conversion.

They will probably not be quite powerful enough, 1000 Kv 28 mm outrunners which draws 6 amps with a 40 MM prop, the extra RPM from the 1500 Kv will most likely push the amps to over the 9 amp rating of those motors. A smaller 1 inch prop will be OK I reckon.

I was worried about that. the props in the graupner mini jets I was going to use for the flying sub, is about 3/4" and that is half the size of the inch and a half.
Thanks Nick

Why do you want such little power? Is this for a slow moving?

How about the Blue Wonder for a 10" runabout with a 3/4" prop? I have an old Scientific, mostly solid balsa runabout that was for tether running with a 1/2A engine. I would love to put an transom-mounted rudder on it and go to e-power. I have a Blue Wonder -- maybe two -- and some Li-Po's lying about that would fit her "engine compartment.". Otherwise, I would be looking at something like a brushed 6V motor.

Conversion of this boat would not be for competition, but for restoration. She has been modified to look like one of the mono-hull full sized boats that ran in the Buffalo Launch CLub regattas in the late 50's and early 60's. I would like to be able to run her around for fun with the part-time assistance from one of my three grandsons.

Hi Pete,
Should be fine, I dont think it will be anywhere near the speed of the 1/2A motor but as its for your grand kids this is probably not an issue

1/2 A from a bit of interneting 18,000-22,000 RPM and around 100 watts

Blue wonder at 7.4volts 11,000 RPM(no load) and about 60 watts if its loaded to 6-7000 RPM

I don,t think a 3/4 inch prop will load it down that much
