Set up..??

Hi, Am new to rc boats and have just acquired this vintage boat complete with 2 x Kyosho Jackson rs540sh outboard motors on it. The problem i have, is there is no speed controller/s with the boat, and i have no idea what to put in it? Also, i have 2 x 2 cell 7.4v Lipo's that i was hoping to use.

Could anyone advise me on a good set up please..?

Prop's on Kyosho's are brown, if that helps?

Hi Kentish,

Two of these should work fine:
These even have a LVC for Lipo's.

Regards, Jan.

The Jackson/Kyosho 540 outboard uses regular brushed motor similar to Graupner-500 serie, the prop used was Octura plastic with 3/16" bore(Octura-1440). The 30A ESC linked by pompebled is adequate!
