Robert BurnsRobert Burns Club Members Posts: 2

Can anyone tell me which electronic speed control I should use for a 6v brushed motor? The will run 5,000 RPMs with No Load and draws 4 amps at maximum load of 2" diameter prop direct connected.
I would also like a recommended battery pack for this size motor.
Thanks

    None that HobbyKing keep would be any use running at 6V.

    What EXACT motors are you using?
