In this I describe the 'how' of building a bow thruster. (Spoiler.. there is a lot of lathe work, however I give a lot of detail on this in the later videos. The brushless motor and ESC is: Turnigy AX-2203C 1400KV/60W Brushless Outrunner Motor = $19.12 (AU) TTS-18A/14630 Turnigy TrackStar 25A 1/18th Scale Brushless Car ESC = $29.98 (AU) The result is a fully proportional and very powerful bow thruster, that is sealed and sits alone in the 'drink.' For people building bow thrusters for surface boats the build will be simpler. Find the project here http://www.scratchbuildwithjohn.com/los-angeles-laser-operated-submarine/
