Brushless or not?

I have just been given a Jetti 45/3 brushless motor from a wrecked RC Plane (a real bin bag job, don't know why they do it?), anyway, what I would like to know is wether it is worth me spending 90 on the appropriate speed controller (not in the bin bag) or is this motor not going to suit a fast electric hull. If anyone out there is using one, what prop/cell combo?

Nice Score

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that motor will not work in a boat.
It is a low RPM motor (15000 Max) and designed for 12-16 cells
You will certainly cook it if you put it in a boat with 12 cells on it.
If I remember right, it is designed to handle about 30-40 amps. A boat will put all of that on it and more.

Keep it for another project someday. Maybe an air boat!

Thanks Pete,
Better to find out now than build a marine egg fryer!
Any fly boys out there wanna buy a motor?
