Good job! What did you put in it?
Get some video when you get a chance! Also, find yourself a creek with rapids and you will be seriously addicted!

The thing ended up sitting on my desk for about half a year with nothing in it, so i said what the 'ell and bought some electronics.

Will be fun driving it in the wake of my new Yamaha Waveblaster.

2040 4800kv brushless watercooled, 35a watercooled, cheap hk metal gear servo, 4000mah 2s lipo...

I need to figure out a go way to seal the canopy. Any ideas? Hopefully i can take in down to lake ontario some day and get it in the surf. Will post some video soon. I am going to bite the bullet and get myself a gopro hd.

I still run mine a bit in a creek right near home, and it's also my rescue boat for anything bigger. I can put a tennis ball (attached to a fishing reel) on it between the drivers, drive out past the stopped boat and then pull the ball off by the reel and reel the boat in that way.

Hi Crimp,

You'll need all new electronics. Sorry if you were under the inpression that you could keep the radio and servo, but its just really cheap in there. Modding this thing isn't a walk in the park I'll warn. At least $150 needs to be put into it.

You'll need:

-motor
-esc
-lipo battery plus charger
-transmitter and receiver
-servo
-water cooling accessories

There are youtube video that will show you better, but basically when you first get it you have to make a clean cut in the top under the canopy. This will allow you to frustratingly rip out the stock crap.

Not too many mods have to be done to the hull and jet unit. You just need to drill a few holes for the water.

This is what my setup consists (minus the transmitter and receiver as i have my own hobby grade ones) of and is about as cheap as you can go. If the item isn't instock, you will likely be able to find similar products at places like hobbypartz.com. With this set up you will need a 2s lipo battery (preferably over 2500mah and under 5500mah).

Unfortunately my video camera has been on "loan" to my sister for a month now. She is on a big trip to Europe... :roll eyes:

It seems there is something that is intimidating you about this. Is there a certain thing that i can answer via pictures or words that may be of help to you?

Basically the biggest "non-electronic" related mod that you're doing is cutting a square hole right under the canopy (place where the drives sit). When you get it, under the driver lid/canopy you will see a nice rectangular platform defined by lined groves. You will need to cut a rectangular hole within the groves. for the best sealing, i would cut as small of a hole as possible. (without sacrificing the ability to get your hand in the boat in order to do the electronic work) Once you receive you're boat it will make way, way more sense.

You can go two different route when i come to ripping out and installing electronics.

1. remove the jet drive from the hull. this will require breaking the glue seal that is keeping the jet drive to the hull. This methode with make it easier to remove and install motors, but then you have to reseal the drive to the hull.

2. Remove electronics without removing the jet drive. This is what i did, but many don't have the patients to do this. It sounds eisier, but going this route means lots of finicky work to remove and install motors. With that said, i would still do this methode if i was building another one.

I gave you a picture of my boat that shows my water cooling set up. I know it to work very well and can confirm that there is a steady and powerful stream of water flowing through it at all speeds. Therefor, this kind of set up would be my recommendation, but online you will see many different methodes. Generally with water cooling, the less tubing and bends in the tubing the better. Get the water in and out fast. As you can see in my picture, i try my best to use limited amounts of tubing, and for the most part it is pretty straight.

Let me know if you have specific build questions.
