LCM6
« on: 09 April 2020, 13:58:55 »
Hi
  At last I’m about to start building the LCM6 I bought way back :D. I’m wondering which motors to fit. I have 2 MFA 457RE360 in my stock, would these be too small? If so I would like to put brushless motors in. With this only being my second build I’m not to sure which motors would be suitable. Can anybody recommend any, plus speed controllers to match. I don’t want to spend a fortune on these as there are some mad prices out there.
Cheers Ian

Hi
Better with 2x 385 types 360s may struggle a bit, no idea on brushless, no point you do not ned to save weight and you only need about 4-5k RPM, why not follow what it suggest in the instructions ? and make sure you do NOT use to long a couplings or you will not have room to fit them in, and if you move the bulkhead fwd ( as some have done) you will be in  right mes when you try fit the deck
