Hi,

1 esc is all you need to power 2 motors. If you have a duel throttle transmitter (tx) and want the boat to turn 360 degrees in place and do other fine scale maneuvers then you can add the 2nd esc for that purpose. Otherwise, 1 ESC is all you need.

Guys, with brushless motors, you need one controller for each motor.

Hi Doby,

Thanks for the correction, I guess you can see that i've been playing with brushed motors way too long.. I'm curious, why can't you use 1 ESC with 2 brushless motors?

Regards,

-Rich.
