    Dear members,

    Attached are photos of a model boat that I constructed. Now I want to find an appropriate electric motor to place on the boat. Anyone can advice me a method to determine which motor I can use? Power of the motor? Thrust?

    The dimensions
    weight of the model is 1 kg
    Length: 54 cm
    Width: 16cm
    Height: 7cm
    Flat bottom boat

    Thank you lots.
    Javaid Hosany
