Default first hydro build gary findlay plans

hey all, im building my first FE hydro

its the gary findlay 22.5 inch plans for the notre dame hydro.
pics soon to follow.

im wondering what hardware would work well on this boat, i prefer to order from an actual website, like OSE, rather than ebay.

im thikning of running a fiegao 540s 3943kv motor
on 2 cells.

im not sure what esc yet, as i dont know what kind of amp rating would be safest, im thinking it will need at least 60amps
im thinking if this estimation is correct, that the hobbywing seaking 60amp version would be a good match

with this set up, i would get a hypothetical total rpm of 29178.2 rpm, i was told that for hydros 25-30 thousand rpms is suitable, also something im assuming based on word of mouth

if anyone can recomend hardware for this hull, i would be thankful.

pics will come tomorrow, my camera isnt here at the moment.
thanks
andy

You don't need anything expensive. Some used octura will do.

Home made from brass will do too, as per plans.

theres not much market for boats around my town.
so used stuff is hard to come by, i was more thinking about the speedmaster series from offshoreelectrics.
