I'm changing out the old setup as there just wasn't the power required even for scale speed. So I've got 2 Maytech Ghost 3548 790KV Brushless Outrunner Motors:

and 2 ESC's:

and the choice of 1 or 2 batteries:

My question is what props should I use?

Thanks

Roger

Hi Roger,

Is it the smaller one 37" long ? If so I'd start with X35's

Plastic props are supplied with two different pitches. S=standard and X=Coarse. Cast-metal props tend to have their pitch as part of the serial number e.g. a 1415 Propshop prop is 1.4" diameter x 1.5" pitch. Hope that helps.

Will plastic props suffice for this boat, and should they be left and right handed?

Regards

Roger

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
