Hello everyone, Another relative newbi here. I've been a member of a couple of clubs in the past but although they say that they are friendly and welcome new comers, I've found they can be quite cliquey. I'm no wallflower, neither am I too forward and pushy so maybe it’s me. So I thought I would join your forum. The reason being like a lot of other modellers is that I need help and advise occasionally. I've always built and sailed RC yachts,but I would like to have a go at powered models. So When asked by my lovely wife what I would like for Christmas I said the 1/8th scale model Perkasa by Precedent. Sorry to be scouting all round the houses but feel the need to explain myself. I don’t want to screw up an expensive bit of gear by getting it wrong. So the question I would like to put to any of you fellow modeller’s is this. The model is 49” long, would it be wise to go for twin props. If twin props, would it be better to have them counter-rotate. . If so would a 50 amp controller be adequate for two 550 brushed motors that I was thinking of using? Or would a single prop be enough to put her up on the plane. Thank’s Dave
