Marine Diesel Engine
« on: March 26, 2018, 08:09:53 AM »

I am looking to build a rc boat that would be driven by 4 electic motors but instead of them being run of a battery i was thinking of a model 4 stroke diesel engine that would run a generator to supply power, as diesels are efficent and supply most of its tourque in the lower rev ranges which is perfect as i would like to run it as slow as i could while producing the electicity i need. I would have a back up battery incase of the motor fails so i can bring it ashore and find the problem. I've looked at model diesel engines but they don't look like they would suit a marine application. If there is one that would run on diesel out of the fuel staion pump that would be great as i cnat get any rc fuel from the local shops i have to order it in from down south.
any ideas of diesels i could use??

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
