Ahoy there mateys!

As well as building my current 1/32 scale Lindberg PT boat I have been doing a bit of repair and re-fiiting on/in my 20+ years old 1/32 scale Lindberg PT boat.

I had originally installed three inexpensive hobby motors in it. It wasn't fast but it runs for a couple of hours on a 3300 NiMH 7.2 volt battery.

Well, I have decided to mount a 400 Speed Motor (not brushless) to drive the middle prop. Has any one here ever run just a single 400 size motor in one of these boats? If so what was your speed and run-time like?

I was going to run it at the local pond this evening but it is now thundering and lightning and I do not want to have an extremely shocking experience there. When I do run it I'll let you know how it goes.

Cheers again and thanks from PeterTareBuilder
