Low voltage Speed Control???

Are there any electronic speed controls out there that will run at 1.5 to 3 Volts?

Thanks

What are you planing on placing it into?
I have been working on the Skippers Launch for the LST 150, which is only 7" long. I picked up a R/C mouse ( like a zipzap car) a real cheap thing. Remove the board in it and I now have a ESC/Reciever for the boat. It runs on one cell, that is charged by two AA cells.

A friend has a small fireboat that used to run off one cell battery and I believe it had an old contact type of esc (like a dumas one-but smaller) it no longer works. Will a servo work in reverse as well??

yes it will work in reverse. you need to do some mods to the servo if you plan on leaving it in the case. most times it is easer to take it apart, then you can put things were you want for space.
