Electric Motor Nomenclature
When looking for suitable motive power for their model boats, many people are confused by the descriptions of electric motors by manufacturers and suppliers and it is indeed something of a minefield for the less experienced modeller. The table below is intended to give some rough guidance in respect of characteristics and applications for the more commonly listed motors.
Note that it takes no account of different prop types/sizes, weight of model etc, and the performance figures are from manufacturers or suppliers published data (and not independently verified). That said, it's a reasonable place to start from!
