Dress up your next racing boat project with our CNC aluminum outboard style outdrive for your 500~700mm long boat project. This faux Mercury outboard motor features a CNC aluminum lower unit, mounting system, and a fiberglass engine enclosure. A flex shaft cable runs through the lower unit to the provided 30mm 3-blade propeller. This unit includes a 2842 2630kv watercooled inrunner motor pre-mounted. Extended motor wires with 4mm bullet plugs, and a pre-installed water pick up line with a water exit complete the unit.
A full set of installation and maintenance instructions are included. One cool feature is that the flex shaft assembly has a pre-installed grease tube. This means you can simply use a syringe of marine grease and inject it straight into the flex shaft without the need to dis-assemble anything. Mounting to your hull is easy, just need four bolts. The whole unit can be adjusted to fine tune the prop drive angle for optimal performance. As the whole unit, motor and all pivot on the mount, heavy duty teflon bushings reduce friction, yet are maintenance free. Pull-pull style arms reduces servo load for the utmost of precision.
Add good looks and performance to your next boat project with our CNC Aluminum Outboard Motor!

That is rubbish, the grease tube only puts grease on the outside of the shaft liner and some might reach the lower bearing but there is no way to grease the flex shaft so it will fail very quicklyThis scale outboard looks really nice in the listing photos, but when received it has a lot of tooling marks on it. For that I give 4 stars instead of 5. Otherwise it is pretty decent for the money, and looks very scale. The prop is very thin plastic, and will most likely break easily. A metal prop will be an essential upgrade.http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2264681
Here is a thread I helped with that contains alot of detail about the outboard.
