Isn't it about time submariners used brushless motors ?

Would really like to have brushless motors for my 1/32 scale Type IX-C German WWII submarine.It is 8 feet long,40lbs.,with two Mabuchi 540 can motors with 2-1 gear reduction.I'm using 14.4 volt of DeWalt A123 batteries.
Motors can be water cooled as well as the speed controls.

How is this different to surface craft? Most high-performance boats use brushless motors, and most brushless speed controls (and motors) for boats are built to be water-cooled.

Perhaps a good place to start is to ask you what sort of RPM you wish to achieve and how much power that will take. We have plenty of controllers that would work well for an application such as this. Our car controllers, in particular, would likely work well here. They run brushed too!
