Pod mounted motors..?

Postby U-33 » Sun Jul 13, 2008 3:45 am

I'm after a pair of pod mounted motors to go on the sides of Seaquel 5, something about the size of a Mabuchi 380. Must be complete with pods and more or less ready to install. I need them to be able to swivel about 45 degrees and preferably independently controlled.

Any ideas as to where I can obtain a couple?

Cheers,

Please try to make this post only once. The three you made are excessive and unnecessary.

Thank you.

I think they'll be a bit too chunky for his submersible craft.

Why don't you make your own?

Fit two subtech seals in some old 35mm film canisters (speed 400 size I think), or run a brass bush with some silicone tubing on the end. Simple and cheap.

Problem solved now, thanks guys.. I've come up with a new, easy to build system which will give me two completely independantly controlled pods capable of revolving through 45 degrees, powered by two 380 sized motors.

Thanks for the input guys...
