Question
Out runner Motors For Sterling Corvette

Finally ready to power my big momma Sterling classic.
Can anyone suggest a Turnigy or HK brushless out runner that would work well in this large boat. It will run with twin motors. It has 3/16" dumas shafts what prop sizes for those motors?

Take a look at what I'm running in my sport fish, maybe you can use this as starting point for your corvette. The corvette is about the same size.http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...37093&page=613
I hope this helps a little.

1300kv on 7.4 volts (9620 no load RPM) was a great formula for my Nellie Irene. I am running 2" PropShop 3 bladers.....

Outrunner diameter was 37mm. PLENTY of power to turn the screws and barely warm to the touch,


You can use this calculator to zero in on what you need. What battery do you plan on using?
