RC Jet Boat
« on: February 17, 2012, 09:57:35 PM »
Dusted off this thing, she has a real jet unit and can go through real shallow water.
Bit tricky to operate if you pull off the throttle and try to steer nothing happens so you
need to keep the revs up or crash! The thrust coming out the spout is the steering.
Just like the real thing sometimes you see them on the SBS show Speedweek,
jetsprinting is a bit like rally driving on the water, high speed, tight turns lots of fun!

   

Did a bit of scratch building to real up the V8, dissy, plug leads, carbie and air intake.
 

 

Also just got one of those mini GoPro cameras still sussing it out, took some pics this arvo.
Can see some potential for battle days, commanders eye view type stuff.

This boat is a blast to drive!  ;D

Mine is almost done, will take it to the beach this weekend :)



I' pretty sure this brushless motor will keep it planing smoothly hehehe...
