It is your model you can do whatever you want. The question is do you want the model to travel at scale speeds on the water or do you just want a boat to run like a rocket? The choice is yours.

Kaoma,
One of those choices, you know? And like 'Tug' said, just depends on what you're looking for. For most scale applications a brushless motor is a huge over-kill kind'a thingy. But it's your wallet.
