Hello everyone. I have a question for experienced modelers in the field of RC. So I have a model Missouri 1/200 and I am going to make it as RC, I have a question how many engines better to use 1 engine with gearbox or 4 engines and what engine power is suitable for this model?

Hello. I have built 2 of the old sterling 1/192 scale Missouri. I used 2 380 sized motors on the first one with only 2 prop shafts. In my second I used 4 385 motors and all four shafts.Both models are direct drive with no gear reduction. Both perform quite well.
