Hs 55 servo & GWS 22 mm gear drive.

Bought the kit for static stand. But everything fits so lightly. I put in 2 LIFEPO4 1100 mahr cells.

Still trying to find a 5 to 10 amp BRUSHED esc on 3 vdc cutoff. That HiTech standard servo amplifier gets warm.

I put in a full closed cell gasket all around the hull edges. Just like the Bluedevil hull.

For the GWS IPS you're using a 2 Amps ESC would be enough, many standard servo amplifier board could be used and give forward/reverse with very little modification:

A little larger scale.

I built 6 of these for a group of retired race boat drivers.
