A few words about our motors. These motors have been selected to work well in direct drive marine applications. Unlike most hobby store motors which are 3 pole types designed to run at high RPM, most of these motors are low RPM with high torque. If you are looking for long running time and a solid, reliable motor for a warship, tug or fishing boat, you can find it here.
