WLtoys WL912 Upgrades Mod


I will soon receive the WLtoys WL912 and i plan to upgrade with direct drive, since stock it is using gears and replace motor, esc and use 3s as battery.

I believe that the FT012 would a nice candidate for donor parts:








and i already have an FrSky receiver and Tx

Is that all i will need ? i would prefer to use a flexible drive shaft but i don't know which one will do

any suggestion recommendations on the parts i will need ? my main problem is the shaft and how to connect it to the motor, the electronics are not a problem i can sort them out

Also i can a spare 2440 brushless motor 4000kv can i use that on the boat ?

You might get more answers if you post in the right section, such as one for fast or small boats rather than the software query section, mostly because the people likely to have your answers are more likely to look there, rather than here.

But not in the HACKS room, please. Way off-topic.
