    Is the Graupner Speed 600 equivalent in size to a standard 540 or 550? I'm building the Dumas 16' hydroplane, and looking at several power options. The Standard Dumas 6V looks alot like a 550. For the price of the Dumas motor, I could buy the Graupner and reap the benifits of ball bearings and fan cooling. (provided the motors are similarly sized). If there is anyone out there familiar with these motors, please give me a shout!

    Thanks

    This model requires fairly modest rpm and power

    If you are sign 2 lipos a small brushless with a kv of 1500 rpm/v will be excellent and get the boat moving quickly with a 36-38mm prop - these are cheap and ultra reliable motors
