    Default Electric Boat Project

    Thought I would share a quick video of an electric hydroplane I've been working on as a school research project.

    Running a brushless DC motor at 131 volts, peaked out at 41 mph but there is still a lot of room for improvement.

    I've still got a ways to go to catch up....I wonder how hot that motor gets pulling 700 amps. At 700 amps and that voltage the motor is producing about 130 HP, which is almost 9 times its rated power.
