Hello Nick

I`m just curious, why are you searching for this particular type of motor?

I have two such motors but they are not for sale

They are installed in my model

Hi Bob

They are actually for model cars! Sorry 😐

I know they are used for model boats too, thought I’d ask you guys in case you have any spare

cheers

Hello Ashley

The motors were ordered in error really

They were used on the Ellie Launch originally, or on Brutus 1

They were supposed to be something special at the time, they had an internal adjustment to the revs.

Gareth Jones came to Lyme Park to tune them up with his equipment, but the motors were still a mystery

I`ve fitted them now to the 40 " Vintage Launch, which hasn`t sailed yet

Are you familiar with them at all?

Bob

No, but having had a quick google (as you do) it seems they are very hot 540s. 22000 rpm mentioned at one ste.

Wow, your vintage launch is going to ROCKET along...best put some trim tabs on the backend to keep the front down!,

i have an adjustable brushMabuchi in a nice little fitted wooden box, and it has Moblyoblydenum magnets!

Dying to try it on something but nothing here suitable for it, the brushes get in the way as a straight swap.

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.
