Default Smaller Stern Drives?

I am looking to put twin Stern drives on my 36 inch hull. Are there small enough drives that could fit? The only ones I know about are the ones from MHZ, but they are for the much larger boats right?
Thanks
Mike

What are you planning for power and aims for speed. I believe there are smaller stern drives (MHZ has one or two) for electrics etc - not sure how much power they will handle - but not sure how much power you can fit in a 36" scale boat running twin stern drives.

Hi,

I am not looking for anymore then 25-30 mph. I was thinking twin brushless motors. Maybe 1/3 hp for each motor? I didn't post in the electric forum because you guys seem to know more regarding drives.
Thanks
Mike
