    RE: small rc boat build!

    Hi Jack,

    If you're not set on going high-tech brushless, then obviously the cheaper route would be using a simple small hobby or surplus motor, servo-controlled micro switch instead of an electronic speed control, and a ni-mh battery pack.

    A coupler could be as simple as silicone or rubber tubing. For rudder/prop/driveshaft on a boat this small, you could probably gut an old Radio-Shack rc boat from a garage sale or thrift store.

    Now that's cheap!
