Yes.

I also recommend that you run a ball bearing motor.

The tower .46 or an o.s. .46(cheaper, I wonder why?) might be some good options. As S.I. said, a .46 will move a 24" foamie well on water, grass, also snow and ice.

Go with the OS line of motors. They may be a few more bucks, but are well worth it!!

I tried a few Tower motors in the past and was not happy with them, you spend too much time trying to keep them tuned.
