Default Evolution of RC scratch built Riva Aquarama to reach 45 km/h

Hello,

I would like to share "story" how we motorized a riva aquarama

on 2007, a pair of brush motors was used, the boat ran slow like a wheelchair


on 2013, tantrasway racing team founded with the aim to motorize runabouts and conquer limitations of speed. We reverted to the riva aquarama project. twin 1800kv brushless motors were used. Some first tests: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75cJKgTaZVo
