Default RE: Super Hawaii Build - Dual Outdrives

HK is the only place I've found that has low amp speed controls. I'm running both motors in the BM off a single Turnigy 30 amp with an added cooling plate as that cost less than $8. How long they will have them I don't know. Occasionally they show up at swap meets, but I think most people are throwing them out. Unfortunately most of the cheap boats come with junk integrated receivers and escs, often on 49mh, that immediately fail. Actually, in the Wildcat I went brushless because a pair of out runners with two 50 amp water cooled escs cost less than $50 total from HK. 540 brushed with esc would have been a lot more. Burnt up a couple of 3500kv motors before I dropped to 2250 kv motors. I like the dual motors because the centered rudder then runs in relatively little prop turbulence.
