German S-100 Class Schnellboot (Fast Boat)
The SBoot Motors and Drive system
I have bought three Cobra 4130/12 motors as the Turnigy motors that I purchased are not really suitable for the type of mounts that I have. The Cobra Motors are nearly 50mm (2") diameter and 61mm long.
I have also bought three 50mm props and three 120Amp brushless speed controllers and I have three 5000mAH 14.4Volt Lithium batteries for this beast!
The Specifications - 4 Cell Lipo battery at around 14.8 Volts should produce about 1000 watts for each motor, that should be enough!

I bought these 1/35th scale cast propellers from G-Factor (E-Bay) the top three are for a 35th scale S-Boot and the bottom three are for the 35th scale Elco. note that the Schnellboot outside props are counter rotating and the middle one has no spike because it sits in front of the main rudder support.
The Elco props are all the same.
These are all solid cast brass, the quality looks really good - I need some 20th scale versions!
