Default Power Plant.

Thanks for the input.
I was thinking about twin 500's. do you know what rpm I should be looking for at the prop. I'm thinking a 3:1 reduction will get the prop to about 6000 rpm's Also looking at 3 blade 1 1/2 inch brass props.

What say you or anyone out there

Pics of hull to come soon

Default scale

it depends on what type of power your going to run
with that set up a 6 volt lead acid battery would probably be best itll give you longer than a nicad obvs thats if youve got the room to fit it

What do you guys make your hulls out of? Also, how much do the engines you are using cost?
