I am looking to build a drive for my kayak. A DIY bixpy type clone, if you are familiar with that. I am probably in the wrong place altogether. But this seams to be the highest concentration of aqua motorized DIY that I can find.
I am currently running a hacked trolling motor with a DIY remote control on LiFePO4 batts salvaged from medical equipment. I have also almost finished a DIY batt. The motor is brushed and 12v. I would like to switch to brushless, higher voltage (24-36v I think) and maybe pick up a little more speed.
Can anyone give me direction, or point me to somewhere to sort through what motor and prop would work for displacement kayak propulsion?
